While in port before leaving on a cruise, we wandered the old port area and old port market. It was pleasant, but nothing extraordinary.

We thought we were going to a real marketplace, with a farmer's market, lots of eating choices and interesting local crafts. However, we were disappointed. There were food vendors, but primarily cider and ice wines, maple confections and smoked meats. It was OK but not great. The "food court" area had just one very rinky-dink cafe, which didn't look fresh.... More

We took a ferry and enjoyed it breaking the ice like an icebreaker with the temperature -44 C. I liked everything!

On a rainy November day my husband and I took a cab to the Vieux-Port Market and were glad that we did. The market is large and contains everything from apples to spirits not made from grapes to Christmas ornaments. Each stall was fun to visit, and many had samples for customers to try. That is how we happened to... More

Having explored old town we almost missed the old port, so glad we didn't and well worth those few extra steps. Gorgeous setting, shops and cafes.

I started out at the Old Port Market which would be a fantastic place to pick up fresh food if you are preparing a meal. This area was very quaint with locally owned restaurants, art galleries & outdoor art. As I walked closer to the where the cruise ships were docked, the shops became geared toward the tourists. The victory?... More

It's a bit of a walk, but you can wander through the antiques area of town. We always like to visit the food markets when we travel and this one was a delight. We found some amazing blueberry juices that we brought home and some lovely local honey. It's nice to chat with the vendors and hear about their products.... More
