Union Station

Holiday pop-up market to take over Union Station

Despite the inherent gorgeousness of the gilded, domed Great Hall at Union Station, come December, it's more synonymous with slush-soaked winter commuters and hordes of grumpy holiday travellers than it is for Christmas cheer. Until now, that is - plans have just been announced for the first-ever Union Station Holiday Market, which will fill the station with holiday vendors from December 1 to 7.

Decking the Great Hall at the free event will be local vendors like Yo Sox and Foxy Originals, with Nadege, Toronto Popcorn Company and Desmond & Beatrice supplying snacks. Like localTOmrkt, set to take over a vacant lot at Yonge and Gould over the holidays, the market aims to give throngs of conveniently-located passersby (250,000 each day, according to organizers) easy access to nifty, locally-made gifts.
