Would you believe us if we said one of Toronto’s most beloved Christmas markets is among the best in the world? Well, it’s the truth! A new list has revealed the top Christmas markets taking place across the globe in 2023 and Toronto’s Distillery Winter Village has earned a mention.

In a new list by CNN, the U.S news publication listed 20 Christmas markets throughout Europe, the U.S and Canada.

Wiener Christkindlmarkt in Austria, Basel Christmas Market in Switzerland, and Strasbourg Christmas Market in France are among those listed. And of course, The Distillery Winter Village in one of Toronto’s historic areas.

“Formerly known as the Toronto Christmas Market, the Distillery Winter Village is an intimate and charming take on the traditional European festive market,” shares CNN.

And if you ever had the pleasure to experience this holiday event, you’ll definitely agree.

From festive food offerings to local holiday shopping, the Distillery Winter Village is truly a magical experience.

But the showstopper is definitely its Christmas tree which towers at 56 feet – making it the tallest tree ever on display at the Winter Village.

Other North American Christmas markets that were mentioned in the list include New York’s Winter Village at Bryant Park and Chicago’s Christkindlmarket.

If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting Europe during the holidays, it looks like you won’t have to travel far. You can still enjoy it right at home – at Toronto’s Distillery District, that is.
