Our Quick Guide to the 2017 Toronto Christmas Market

2017 Toronto Christmas Market

Since 2010 the Toronto Christmas Market has been a staple in Toronto. Over half a million Torontonians and tourists visited the 2016 Market and that number is expected to grow in 2017.  As the Distillery District‘s resident tour company, we’ve put together a list of recommendations for your visit.

The 2017 Toronto Christmas Market features new vendors, a light tunnel and absolutely delicious snacks of all types.

Wafel Bar: New for 2017, we’ve teamed up with Wafel Bar.  Everyone joining us for a walking tour already receives a hot chocolate voucher and we’ve upped the game with a complimentary mini-Wafel too!

Chimney Stax: A classic baked treat served either sweet or savory.  Chimney Stax at the Toronto Christmas Market has an incredible selection of styles and you’ll probably end up wanting more than one.

Uncle Betty’s: Donuts?  Oh yeah.  There isn’t really anything else we need to say about this booth except you’re going to love it.  Make sure you check them out on your visit to the Christmas Market.

Our Favorite Places for Coffee

In recent years the Distillery District has become a hotbed of coffee shops.  With 7 coffee shops in 13 acres the area is a caffeine addicts dream.

Arvo: If you’re looking for chill vibes, great tunes and an insanely good Americano, check out Arvo Coffee.  Their friendly staff are passionate about a perfect pull of espresso and just really cool folks.

Arena: If you want something flavoured, check out Arena Coffee.  Their lineup of hot chocolate and espresso based drinks will excite your nose as much as your mouth.  They’re located in Sport Gallery so you can check out really cool sports memorabilia as you sip a tasty drink.

Arena Coffee has some of the best flavoured drinks in Toronto.
