*** This year’s date: Nov. 28 to Dec. 2 ***
One of my favorite activities in the holiday season is to visit the Christmas markets. Not just any but those of craftsmen and artists who take the opportunity to gather their works and creations so we can offer original gifts to our loved ones. I looove it! Plus it keeps me from shopping in chain stores and getting the view of overly abundant generic stuff that nobody needs.
I’m taking this opportunity to tell you about the Souk@sat, a unique market which celebrates its twelfth anniversary this year (founded in 2003). Its mission: to showcase Montreal’s creations by bringing together more than a hundred local artists. It’s pretty well done!
There is something for everyone at different prices. Therefore we encourage – to our delight – local artists, designers and craftspeople who create everything from toys and clothing for kids and adults and decoration and jewelry to accessories and food creations.
The big plus: you can have a drink while shopping!
Enjoy your visit and happy holidays!
