We are now in the throes of winter market season; great reasons to get out of your house on the weekend. The Junction BIA is throwing its annual Santa and Winter Market in the junction this Sunday, December 7, starting at 11:00 a.m.

This year will include a visit from Santa and his elves at the Junction train platform and a street-wide market theme (spanning Dundas St West from Indian Grove to Quebec Ave). Kick off your holiday shopping at the outdoor winter market organized by the Arts Market (also at the train platform). Other businesses will be hosting indoor markets, fleas & craft sales. Kids can listen to Mrs. Claus read holiday tales, watch performances by Creative Children’s Dance Centre, a Reindeer Scavenger Hunt, and take part in workshops that include everything from holiday crafts to furniture demonstrations.

If you live in the Junction (or haven’t been there lately), this is a great chance to go!
