Holiday season in Canada doesn’t exactly scream “get outside” – but when you factor in excitement levels, which start to reach a fever pitch in late November, it’s a must if you don’t want to hibernate until spring.
Luckily for us, there are a few ways to explore the outdoors when the temperatures dip (no, we’re not talking about snowshoeing). stackt market, Canada’s largest shipping container market, is not only open all winter, it’s also introducing some fun ways to get into the spirit. In addition to the 30 plus food and retail vendors onsite, the shopping destination will feature a yurt serving local and international wines, plus mulled wine every Wednesday to Sunday from Nov. 22 to Dec. 22.
Plus, because stackt market knows that working on your Christmas list is more enjoyable with a glass of vino in hand, their Sip + Shop series will run every Wednesday during the festivities. Shoppers can enjoy holiday cocktails while listening to carollers, acoustic musicians or jazz bands.
To line your stomach, stackt market will be hosting a Food Feast Marketplace with a weekly rotating selection of food trucks. Guests can start at the Pavilion with Pop Kitchen's new Mexicasian (Mexican-Asian) fusion pop-up, La Brea, before making your way down the lawn to the lineup of vendors. Still can’t decide? The market’s wood burning oven is partnering with Toronto favourite, Conspiracy Pizza.
stackt market will help you deck your halls or get crafty at one of their Handmade Holiday workshops, presented by Mastercard®. The market will also be selling pesticide-free Christmas trees at their Tree Farm, presented by Belgian Moon. Expect freshly-cut Colorado spruce trees and potted white pine trees, which can both be returned Jan. 7-9 to be repurposed.
Whether you’re crossing off the last gift on your list or warming up with mulled wine, stackt market is the most fun you'll have outside this winter.
