Taking place within the distinct old world charm of Old Quebec Street Shoppes, the Christmas Village Market is a new family friendly and free event in Downtown Guelph that will take place from Thursday December 7th to Sunday December 10th.  Candy cane striped booths and festive décor will create the magic and romance of a traditional European Christmas market. 

The Christmas Village Market will host over 30 vendors selling handcrafted, unique, one of a kind, gift items and food delicacies.  Sip a classic festive drink at Red Papaya as you enjoy the live musical performances from local and established artists. Food vendors include Downtown’s own 39 Carden, and Wellington Cakes, accompanied by Appetizingly Yours, MEGA Fortune Cookie, and Kosuma Foods.  These food vendors are putting scrumptious and unique twists on holiday food and treats. 

Sunday is family day where in addition to the market vendors, children will be selling their wares at the Mini Makers Market.  The brainchild of the Children’s Art Factory, 10 cute and colourful stalls will host budding entrepreneurs and their handmade Christmas gifts.  Family day is also Santa day.  Hoorah! Get your selfies with the jolly man himself.

In addition to the exquisite goods sold by market vendors, festive shoppers will also find stocking stuffers at the Nutty Chocolatier, sparkles at Crème Couture, novelty socks at The Sock Shoppe, and an array of affordable Christmas décor at Old Quebec Street’s newest business, Buck or Two.

Downtown Guelph will be the place to go to find all your exceptional, personal, and high quality gifts this holiday season. That includes a gift or two for you as well.

Co-organized by Old Quebec Street Shoppes and the Downtown Guelph Business Association, the Christmas Village Market is the beginning of a new and sophisticated tradition.
