Been here twice in the past 18 months as part of cruise stop. Cruise terminal well kept and extremely handy to see Old town, but Old Port itself and the covered market really did not warrant more than an hour. A short walk towards Lower town will yield more for your sight seeing effort.

Visited for Xmas and although wasn't the white xmas we had hoped for, the Old Port was quaint, characteristic and a lovely place to visit. We stayed within the walls so we were close to it all. You only really need 2-3 days tops though as it's quite small. A ferry across to Levis is worthwhile for $7 return. Good... More

We discovered the covered market at the Old Port quite by chance and were very pleased we did. So much amazing food, produce, wines and ciders, and wonderful little gift ideas. It's a pity the market isn't better promoted and sign-posted around Old Quebec.

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
