If you enjoy visiting farmers' markets, you will surely enjoy this one. You will find the products of the Quebec region: local fruits and vegetables, meats, seafood, artisan cheeses and breads, ciders and wines, and sweets. You will also find local artisanal products such as clothing items., and many maple products. We visited in late October and apples were everywhere... More

If you have an hour to kill in Quebec City, try this farmer's market, which is open daily from 9-6. In addition to all sorts of fresh foods, meats, fish, and vegetables, you can get local products such as maple syrup, maple candy, Canadian wines, ciders (alcoholic and non), and souvenirs. There are boutique-style stores, and a cafeteria for lunch... More

A great market with produce prices better than what we have in Maine. Lots of local produce, plus maple syrup, honey, meats, cheeses, breads, body products, etc. It's not as big as the one in Montreal but I would say prices are comparable and it's definitely worth the stop if you like farmer's markets! We easily spent 2 hours here... More

Marche du Vieux-Port de Quebec, a daily farmers’ market on the site of the old Marché St-André, dates all the way back to 1841. It is a covered market filled with fresh local food products like produce, yummy baked goods, and preserves at very good prices. We loaded up cherry tomatoes, an aromatic cheese bread, a baked tomato and cheese... More

We were in Quebec for four days. Every morning we found ourselves heading back to this market. It is amazingly clean with a wide assortment of fruits, vegetables, cheese, bakery & other assorted goodies. It was nice going to an area that is frequented by the locals.

The market lacks the variety and scale of the one in Montreal that I had just visited but offers some very nice locally-grown produce and delicious baked goods. It is worth a wander just for photos of the charming architecture. Vendors here are so friendly and many stopped to chat with me (even though they could tell from my camera... More

During our recent weeklong stay in Quebec City, my husband and I made several visits to this adorable quaint indoor market. On our first trip we combined it with a visit to the restored train station which is a block away on the same street. We enjoyed wandering around, admiring all the fresh fruits and vegetables, jams, and other local... More

Picked up a baguette, cheese and salami. So fresh; who needs 5 star restaurants. The vegetables were beautiful. Very nice little trip if you enjoy local markets.

It was nice that the Market is inside so the weather doesn't really affect the vendors and their set-up. A nice selection of items ranging from fruits, vegetables, blueberries, wines, cheeses, maple products, sausages, chocolates, baked goods, fish, flowers, etc. I did find the best buy on maple butter at the Market. A great place to pick up gifts to... More
