Downtown Montreal’s Time Out Market Montréal is shining brighter than ever this December.

From the Market’s stunning Christmas lights — we’re talking about magically transforming 40,000 square feet into a festive wonderland — to the best New Year’s Eve deal in town, plus a (second) downtown visit from Santa in between, Time Out Market Montréal is the place to be this month.

Picture the Market lit up with holiday colours, sparkling baubles, twinkling lights, and thousands of decorations suspended from the ceiling until January 7, 2024.

Time Out Market Montréal is also taking it up a notch this year with an even more elaborate Christmas tree, and a dedicated photo area featuring a Santa throne where Santa Claus himself will sit on December 2.
