Toronto's Christmas Food Market Is Returning & You Can Sip Boozy Drinks In A Sparkly Forest

This twinkling pop-up patio coming to Toronto is putting a festive twist on food and drinks. Sweaters N' Snowflakes is returning to the city on December 3, and you can enjoy photo ops, treats, and more.

The attraction is brought to life by the same people behind Fall N' Leaves and Let's Do Summer, and it features a food and wine bar surrounded by a forest of Christmas trees.

You can wander through a dazzling light tunnel to a partially heated patio filled with fire pits, garland and festive decor. The menu features all sorts of over-the-top holiday treats, and you can enjoy food like wreath-shaped pizzas, gingerbread poutine, and dishes served in things like slippers or gift bags.

There are lots of warm, boozy drinks to keep you cozy, such as mulled wine and spiked hot chocolate. You can even sip the green Grinch-themed sangria if you're feeling like a mean one.

The attraction will be hosting events including live music nights and an ugly sweater festival, and you can also book activities like wine tastings and ugly sweater cookie painting online.

If you're in the mood for something festive, take a trip to this all-out Christmas-themed patio hidden in the city this season.
