    Marche du Vieux Port: Old Port market

    by Jim_Eliason Updated Oct 12, 2015

    This local market features many locally produced food products, including a couple of bakeries. The market sits along the river and is on the bike trial that leads out to Montmorency falls. The market is not very big so don't expect too much.

    Marche du Vieux Port: Usually Good For A Freebie Nibble!

    by johngayton Written Oct 20, 2009

    The old port's market is mainly a fresh produce market and by all accounts in the spring, summer and autumn abounds with colourful displays of locally-grown fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately I was here in the winter and so not many of the stalls were in use. What there was though was worth the visit as I sampled a couple of Quebec wines, nibbled a couple of cheeses and had a taster from one the charcutieres. Other winter stalls included several Maple syrup sellers, arts and crafts, confectionery and clothing.

    There's also a couple of cafe-style restaurants on site and, especially useful in the winter, well-heated rest rooms!

    What to buy: Very much a seasonal market and so constantly changing. Useful if you are self-catering.

    Address: 160 Quai Saint-Andre

    Directions: Below the Old City on the road that runs east from the railway station along the docks.
