Forests Ontario at the Toronto Christmas Market

Forests Ontario returns to the Toronto Christmas in 2018. You can find us from November 30-December 2 and from December 7-9.

You can find us at the entrance to the market located at the intersection of Trinity & Mill Street, right next to the ticket booth. We’ll have real, locally grown Ontario Christmas trees from Somerville Nurseries, ranging in size from mini “condo trees” to majestic 8 footers.

For every tree purchased, a new one will be planted and you’ll receive one free entry ticket into the Toronto Christmas Market!
