We love Quebec but the Marche is only so so. Not really farmers market produce. OK fruit and veggie but not great. Not many options to eat at the markets. Very small to what we expected. Not a European style market, either large or small....More

We visited the market at this location, not the biggest market, but still good, plenty of fresh food stalls, with the odd general store, but the highlight was the Asian food shop, it was crammed with every spice/ herb I’ve ever seen and even more...More

Picked up fresh fruits and veggies, pasta, sauce and very nice red wine. Will be a great fresh meal for us!! Also got a few craft items and souvenirs- plenty of pastry and maple syrup goods, too. Good prices, nice people.

I would highly recommend going here first when you travel to Quebec so you can stock up on fresh food (as restaurant food can be quite rich). Keep in mind most of these suppliers speak French only. Highly t commend the almond croissants at the...More

Even though the Vieux-Port area is pretty much overrun with cruise ship guests, this market stays true to form and offers mostly produce and other local products to local shoppers. Sure, it has the same produce stalls, the same artisan shops, and the same bakeries,...More

If you are staying in Old Quebec you should go for a walk just outside the wall to this extensive farmers market. From the Chateau Frontenac it might take 20 minutes. It will be down hill the entire way there and a relatively steep hike...More

We were there over the Labour Day weekend. Didn't see any ice wine, nor am I positive that it is open during the week. Sorry. We did purchase much fruit that we carried home to Ontario.
