Santa is Coming!


Yes! Santa is still coming to The Pickering Markets! He’s a very busy guy but we managed to get Mrs. Claus to allow him to come visit on Dec 12th/13th, 19th and 20th from Noon-4pm each day.  

Santa doesn’t want to be a super spreader as he’s about to go around the world to visit all the kids and will need your help to do so.  Santa has asked that nobody sit on his lap this year so he can make sure everyone stays safe and gets their presents Christmas morning.

Instead, kids will get to write out their most desired gift to ensure Santa knows what they want followed by a socially distant photo. The photo can be taken by either posing with Santa in the background as he is placing gifts under the tree or your family can all act surprised as you point to Santa as he looks into his magic Christmas sack.  Other creative poses are welcome, but must be cleared with Santa’s helpers first. 

Guests will still get one free photo to take home with them but anyone looking to see Santa must comply with all health and safety protocols on site. 



The Pickering Markets reserves the right to turn away anyone not complying with health and safety protocols as we do our best to stop the spread.  Any questions can be directed towards our marketing team at
