Christmas Markets, Joliette & Terrebonne, Quebec
Before getting started just a quick reminder that I’ll be taking a blogging break for the holidays. The last Thursday Doors post for 2019 will be next week December 19th. For this last post of 2019 I’ll be doing a year-end review of my favourite doors posted 2019, and I encourage you to do the same 🙂
After a 2-week break, we’ll be back in the New Year with a fresh new post to start the New Year on January 9th, 2020.
The first market we checked out was a new one for us in the nearby town of Joliette.
It was smaller than we expected and sadly Santa wasn’t in when we got there 😦
The local merchants who exhibit at these markets offer a wide variety of arts and craft type items along with lots of delicious treats.
The whole tour of the Joliette market took less than 15 minutes but it did afford us the chance to check out some of the old historic properties in the centre of town.
This one has been turned into a fancy restaurant. Judging by what we saw on the menu, we’re going to be going back there…hopefully soon :-p
The next day we checked out the market on Ile des Moulins in Vieux Terrebonne, much closer to home.
This market is bigger and they go all out with carolers in period costumes.
And there’s a much bigger selection of merchants and goodies to choose from.
The fun colours of some of these kiosks really stand out against the snow.
That’s it for now. I look forward to seeing everyone’s year-end review posts next week. Until then: Happy door hunting!
