Daisies, Bison & The Wild Lanaudière Region

Our Saturday morning visit to the Jean-Talon market was a time of rediscovery: we snacked on honeycrisp apples, admired the full display cases of Portuguese custard tarts, and reminisced about the Quebec pastry that honours nuns’ farts.  Then we went upstairs and discovered something new: the Lanaudière region, a largely rural area Northeast of Montréal that provides an abundance of agricultural products for the city.

Market Culture and finally, Poutine

Montreal is a city known for its many diverse neighbourhoods.  Each is a mix of commercial and residential, possessing their own cheese shops, butchers, various boutiques, and privately run grocers and markets.  Wandering through the city, you’ll know you’ve entered a new neighbourhood because the lampposts will change.
