Ho ho ho, Merry Vegan Christmas at the Toronto Vegan Winter Market

Twas the weekend before Christmas, and between working and trying to find the most festive shit to do or see in Toronto, I was exhausted.  The city has at 5 Christmas markets currently running, from the slightly hipster Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District to the big Holiday Fair outside City Hall in Nathan Phillips Square. There’s a Holiday Market in posh Yorkville Village and a Winter Village in Bayview, and let’s not forget the various craft and design-led orange-and-clove-scented events dotted around the city the whole month of December. Toronto is a fucking winter wonderland.

On Sunday I made my way to the The Great Hall on Queen Street West, which I’ll admit I didn’t even realise existed until…Sunday. I’ve been to a few vegan festivals in Edinburgh and Glasgow, but I really wanted to try out Toronto’s offerings. Would the dairy-free cheeses be better? Creamier? Would I finally find that elusive Brie? I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves…
