Christmas is drawing closer by the minute and the bustle of holiday shopping is well underway. Malls have been lit with shimmering trees, and wintery markets have popped up around the city. This new market is the sweetest one you'll find, and with tons of unique gifts and photo ops, it's worth a visit. You'll feel as though you've wandered into Candy Land at Toronto's Square One Christmas Market.
The Merry & Bright Holiday Market, located on Level 2 of the mall, is filled with lots of unique vendors and booths to shop.
You'll find all sorts of delicious treats and Christmas gifts as you explore the whimsical space.
In the spirit of everything sweet, the market will whisk you away to a magical candy paradise.
With giant candy installations and decor, you'll feel like a real-life gingerbread man.
Wander down the pastel path, visit a sparkling candy house, pose beside some massive candy canes, and marvel at the macaron walls.
The space is the perfect spot for Instagram-worthy shots, and you can lounge on a confection throne and wear a larger-than-life candy necklace for your pictures.
You can indulge in some delicious treats like gelato popsicles while you shop for gifts for everyone on your list, and maybe even one for yourself.
From home decor to skincare, you can find all sorts of treasures at this pop-up.
You can also take some DIY holiday workshops. Design your own gold hoop wreath, tree ornament, and more for some Christmas fun. You can sign up for a class on the website, and prices vary for each one.
The market offers complimentary coat check, as well as a gift wrapping service so you don't have to watch endless YouTube videos and stress over your own wrapping abilities.
If you're looking for more festive sweetness, you can visit a real-life giant gingerbread house in the lobby of Fairmont Royal York this season.
