Christmas magic is in the air, and while Toronto has a ton of holiday markets to visit this season, one farm just outside the city transforms into its own little winter wonderland year after year.
Niemi’s Family Farm in Mount Albert has opened their annual Christmas Land for the season, featuring an enchanting holiday-themed market, twinkly-lit forested pathways, local vendors to shop from, and Santa’s workshop.
Toast marshmallows and make the perfect s’more by the outdoor bonfire before snapping a pic at one of the many photo ops.
Pop into the Christmas cafe for a seasonal treat, or pick up some unique gifts from one of the over 50 local vendors. If you haven’t gotten your Christmas tree yet, you can buy one right there at the farm.
There’s also a magical Polar Express train ride you can hop on, which takes you around the property to meet the various animals who live on the farm.
Niemi’s Family Farm is just a 90-minute drive from Toronto, perfect for a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Christmas Market will be open on Fridays and Saturdays until December 23, as well as December 20 and 21. Tickets are priced at $19.99 per person, and include a ride on the Polar Express.
