Christmas is less than a month away, and this means that the stage of the holiday crafts market after a bad time is warming the chimney faster than Santa's baby.
We have created a list of local markets in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, which we believe should offer recipients of gifts with a wide range of crafts, locally made and one-piece items.
Even better, none of the markets charge you.
Each and every single compilation will probably take place by mid-January, so if you have markets that you think are worthy to evaluate, inform us about it. Tweet, Facebook or by email.
Museum of the Christmas Market
Where: Canada History Museum
When: November 30 from 11am to 1pm 8 pm, 1st and 2nd of December from 9am to 5pm
It actually began on Thursday, but it runs throughout the weekend, with more than 80 sellers taking over the Great Hall of the History Museum.
Many sellers are from West Quebec, offering goods ranging from chocolate and maple products to jewelry and wood craftsmen.
The museum is also open to visitors to switch their holiday shopping with exhibits in medieval European history or Canadian photography in the 19th century.
Carp Farmers Christmas Market
Where: Karp Exhibition Center
When: November 30 from From 15:00 to noon 8:00, December 1, from 8 am to 1 pm 14.00
Approximately 75 sellers will be divided into two buildings on the annual Carp market, which operates today and tomorrow.
The food supplier list includes dozens of Ontario Oriental manufacturers that offer delicious scans, such as organic honey, hot sauce and Syriac desserts.
These Christmas stockings will also include soaps, candles, woolen products and other non-food items for merchants.
Although the market itself is free, visitors can offer a donation to the West Carleton Food Access Center.
Where: Carleton University Fieldhouse, 85 University Rd.
When: December 1st from 10 am to 1 pm 15
For those who monitor eclectic 613flean products, the rest of the year is managed by 613. Christmas is their theatrical spin on the same concept.
About 150 vendors are scheduled to take place this week at Carleton University Fieldhouse, including bakers, local craftsmen and antique dealers.
So, if you plan on retro-theme Christmas this year, this may be your alley.
Good Companion Christmas Market
Where: Good Center Senior Center, 670 Alberta Street
When: December 1st from 9:30 am to noon 14:00
As it was proposed one of CBC Ottawa Twitter followers, this Saturday's market offers handcrafted crafts and baked goods produced by local retirees.
Expect high quality quilts, knitting, hot chocolate and what Albert Street Center – a non-profit organization offering programming and support services for older Ottawans – bills like its "famous tortier pies".
Santas also appeared.
Merrickville Craft & Trades Exhibition
Where: Mercuryville United Arts Center, 100 Main St., Merrickville
When: December 1st from 12am to 1pm
If you want to enjoy the store and take a walk along the Rideau River in the picturesque Merrickville, we have an exhibition for you.
More than 30 sellers will be created in the renovated center, doubling as Merrickville United Church.
There will also be breakfast with Santa and a show that is part of the community Christmas at Merrickville celebrations.
Woodroff High School Craft Exhibition
Where: Woodroff High School, 2410 Georgina Dr., Ottawa.
When: December 1st from 9am to 1pm 15
The school's oldest council has called for local craftsmen for the fifth year to help raise funds.
Wakefield christmas market
Where: 38 Chemin de la Vallée de Wakefield
When: 8th of December from From 13:00 to noon 7:00
Since about 2013, this unique holiday showcase in the west of Quebec itself is like "the European open-air holiday market".
Approximately 70 vendors will hawking their products strangely in a seaside community about 40 kilometers north of Ottawa.
There will also be horseshoeing, a photo of Santa and possibly a fit for a socially aware reputation in the Amnesty International letter writing campaign at the local library.
The Farmers' Christmas Market in Ottawa
Where: Aberdeen Pavilion in Lansdow Park
When: on Saturdays and Sundays from December to December 23, from noon 9am to 1pm
Ottawa Farmer's Market Annual Vacation Showcase takes place all through December, rustic in the Aberdeen Pavilion.
It is also a good thing because the site of the heritage – built in 1898 to host agricultural exhibitions, and now has a national historic site – is large enough to fit 100-plus ship and food retailers.
This year, there is also live Christmas music, horse carriage rides on certain dates and a children's play corner for families who want to create their own leisure accessories this year.
And for those procrastinators, there is good news between us: the end date for the market is December 23, just two days before the Christmas deadline.
