We bought a beautiful baguette, fresh blue cheese, sweet strawberries and macarons and our lunch outdoors on the patio there was perfection! A perfect and inexpensive light lunch for two!

I've been to a lot of markets and didn't find that this was particularly amazing.. It does have a couple of shops selling maple products and a couple selling iced cider. Also some meat/seafood shops. But I didn't find it particularly exciting, unfortunately. A lot of flowers being sold!

One thing I like about Quebec City is that it has a market. The market is modern, but still very nice. Many vendors from Isle d"Orleans come to sell their meat, eggs, vegetables, and flowers. My family hoped for a traditional patisserie or boulangerie, but we could not find one. The market was a good place to fill our cravings... More

This is a small, but wonderful mostly food market, with approximately 25-30 different vendors serving up exotic cheeses, cured meats, pastries, seafood, as well as wines and appertifs. The market is open weekdays from 9:00AM-6:00PM and to 5:00PM on weekends. Most of the stalls are cash only, so come prepared with cash. My spouse and I came everyday we were... More

This market was one of the highlights of my trip to QC. Local farmers, producers, artists and craftsman bring their goods and set up stalls in an indoor market place in the old port area. The specialty foods for sale were impressive from locally made maple syrup and butter (which tasted like a delicious ice cream and could be bought... More

Tired of restaurants & crowds? Pick up homemade pastas & sauces -- great food at Pates Fraiches et Cie, We had a nearby vacation rental condo where we could do the minimal preparation required. Because it's May, the variety of fruit/veggies was limited but were able to buy fresh carrots, lettuce, tomatoes. [a prior visit in August yielded great variety... More

I was looking for local wines and other foods and found what I was looking for at the Old Port Market. It was quit when I went but I'm sure in tourist season it is packed of vendors.

Walking through this bustling market, it is hard to resist the many baked goods, fruits and vegetables, fish, etc for sale. But my favorite store was the one at the end of the market where they sold every kind of spice and seasonings from around the world. Be sure to catch that one. There is metered parking and a lovely... More

We went with the impression that we would find local Christmas souvenirs, but surprisingly, we found only one place that had ornaments. The rest is similar to an indoor Farmers Market. Overall it's a good place to pick up some local stuff and have lunch. It's fixed up very festive during Christmas holiday. If you get tired of walking, Ecoplus... More

It wasn't the type of Christmas market we've been to in Europe, but we still liked it. It seemed to be a combination of full time local produce, seafood, and meat vendors, with some temporary additions of craft and sweets vendors. We liked it enough to buy ice wine, bread, veggie chips, and dry sausage.
