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.

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

This is a delightful are of Quebec City, with many streets to wander. All are very tasteful with pleasant shops and much locally produced product: clothes, jewelery, soaps, art. You will find a treasure to bring home and will enjoy the meandering streets and tasteful floral designs decorating many of the buildings.
