When the summer comes around, shopping at the supermarket just isn’t worth it. Why spend your time that way when you can feast your eyes on a collection of fresh products at the Montreal Farmers markets. The Jean-Talon Market and the Atwater Market are two that run year-round and come alive in the summer.
But, there’s another Farmers Market for you to check out: The Old Montreal Farmers Market, or Marche des Eclusiers du Vieux-Port, is set to run until the middle of October. The market is set up by the water and boasts a simple mission of bringing and highlighting Quebec’s best products.
Unlike many other markets, there is nobody between you and the source of your products at this market. The producers themselves come to sell their organic offerings to the people.
The Old Montreal Farmers Market has seasonal products and you’ll have a large selection of vegetables, juices, cheese, sauces, beef, pork, breakfasts, pastries, and bread that are locally made and even organic produce.
Whether you want to grab a bite to eat or get your dinner shopping done, Marche des Eclusiers has something to offer you. When you need to take a break, grab a drink and take a seat in the public places throughout the market.
It’s time to plan your next trip to Old Montreal and check out the sustainable and locally-sourced Marche des Eclusiers du Vieux Port market!
