The exhibitors will be displaying and selling a wide array of arts and crafts including paintings, sculptures, stained glass, ceramics, embroidered goods, clothes, accessories, handbags, jewelry, toys, etc., as well as selling food delicacies prepared by the local producers .The annual Holiday markets in the Laurentians are the perfect way to discover and support local artists while finding a perfect gift for everyone on your list.This year, skip the chaos and stress of the mall and discover the festive ambiance of the local markets and the arts and crafts that Quebec’s artists have to offer.
