A Look at the Mouthwatering Food Options at Third + Bird's Christmas Market

We all know Third + Bird for their epic urban markets. But over the years, their events have grown to include a bigger space, more vendors, makers’ workshops, live music and a food and drink lineup that adds to the sense of community and overall shopping experience. This year is no different.

Held from Nov. 24-25 at The Bay downtown, the 10th annual Third + Bird Christmas Market will feature a cafe area with seating for about 100 people and everything from coffee and cold-pressed juice to pasta and pierogies. The entire market is also licensed, which means you can sip on beer, wine or a custom cocktail while you shop.

Here’s a complete look at the food and drink lineup for the 2018 Third + Bird Christmas Market.

Baba D’s Perogies

Pierogies fried up hot and fresh, including pierogi poutine and a new dessert Smore’s pierogi.
