Running from November 26th to December 4th, Montreal is hosting its traditional Nutcracker Market for the benefit of the Nutcracker Fund for Children at Palais des congrès. On pre-opening night, I had the chance to visit many of the exhibitors present, however with over 100 exhibitors this year, it was difficult to see them all before closing time since my friend and I wanted to stop a little bit everywhere to see all of the beautiful products and creations exposed. I do recommend to plan spending at least two hours there if you want to chance to take your time and have a look everywhere.
There are so many different products: jewellery, clothing, ballet gear, foods, toys and way more! What with the visual displays and knowing that 10% of all sales will go to the Nutcracker Fund For Children, it was difficult not to stop, shop and start crossing off that Christmas gift to-do list, which I did. The vendors are so patient and kind and all unfolds in an ambiance that is quite festive, bumping into the occasional nutcracker, snowflake ballerina or candy king here and there!
It is definitely a must to get creative and unique gifts and contribute to a great cause. Don't find you're in the Christmas spirit just yet? The Nutcracker will kill the grinch in you. I'd post more photos but, you should really just go an see it for yourself ;)
