This area is mixed in an industrial area and perhaps attractive to boaters. Why waste your time when the sights of the lower and upper Vieux Quebec will fill your days with romance, shopping, and great French food.

A bit disappointing - it's a small port without cool decks/bars or views. Not sure if there's a hidden golden spot, but I didn't like very much.

Raspberies, strawberries, blueberries, apples,all local and packaged in small cups to carry around as you shop for ice cider, maple products, soap, and cheese curds(good ones!). One lady makes crepes, while another across the walkway makes fruit smoothies. The bakery in the air- conditioned section will, at times, give away the broken macarons. Yes, free! And they make an exquisite... More

We enjoyed just walking around the old port and watching the boats and yachts entering and exiting the locks to and from the St. Lawrence River.

Huge variety of vendors selling knickknacks, art, jewellery, food and clothing. Wonderful when you can catch the farmer's market. Lots of interesting buildings mixed into the area. Waterfront has a mix of different things to see as you stroll along.

The Old Port was located across the street from our hotel, we chanced upon it and ended up visiting each day. The market is full of stalls selling fresh fruit, vegetables, baked goods, and cheeses along with stalls selling items to eat right there (crepes, ice cream, etc.). We picked up fresh fruit each afternoon, such a treat when away... More

What a wonderful farmers' market! There is delicious food everywhere one turns, and everything we sampled was utterly delicious! I bought some beautiful macaroons, which included a few unique flavors and which were larger than normal. Yummy! My boyfriend purchased some incredible sausage prepared with older, more organic methods. We bought a torte for a picnic, which was basically a... More

A trip to Old Port must include the Marche. It was so much fun to stroll among the vendors, grab lunch and a baguette and fresh fruit for breakfast. A local and tourist venue, indeed.

This area of the lower town is bit of a walk from the high tourist areas. It is worth it. you will find interesting restaurants, shops with antiques and no tee shirts, and a museum. You eventually end up across for the farmer's market, which is worth a trip all by itself. If you try to get back to the... More
