Marche du Vieux Port Tips (3)

Marche du Vieux Port: Old Port market

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!

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.

Fresh produce

The March? du Vieux-Port operates year-round. There are a large variety of local produce on display, quality and freshness second to none. Maple products, cut or dried flower arrangements, berries, vegetables in season. There is also have a restaurant on the premises with a terrace, bar, cheese and cookie counter, ice cream counter, boutiques, public toilets and an automatic teller machine.

What to buy Visit the wine shop and discuss the local sparkling wines produced with maple syrup. Since Julia and I where on our 1st year wedding anniversary I bought a couple of bottles for our day in the park.
