Huge holiday market coming to Nathan Phillips Square

It's the most wonderful time of the year in Toronto. Forget the summertime and its unbearable humidity, and bring on the holiday season. There are so many ways to celebrate here, thanks to our numerous Christmas markets. But for 2016, there's a brand new one coming to town.

Epilepsy Toronto has plans to put on the Holiday Fair in Nathan Phillips Square from December 8 to 23.

This event, inspired by European Christmas markets, will feature artisans, food vendors, rides and of course, Santa Claus. Some of the vendors include Eva's Original Chimneys, Rebozos Authentic Mexican Food, Roses Without Thorns (a greeting card company), Social Gem (ethical jewellery) and Spice of Life, which sells hot sauce.

Along with eating, drinking and shopping, the market will include a midway with rides, including a merry-go-round.

Get ready for dreamy nights under twinkly lights right in the centre of the city.
