I live in Notre-Dame-des-Laurentides, a near 20-minute car ride north of downtown Québec City. Almost every weekend, I go to the Marché du Vieux-Port in the Old-Port of Québec City to buy food. I chose to drive downtown, because my local grocery store doesn’t fill my need for fresh, local produce. Whether for cheese, fish, vegetable or charcuteries I find everything I need at the Marché du Vieux-Port.
Like most people who visit Québec City for the first time, I like to wander around the Marché. And no matter where I am in the world, the local farmer’s market is atop my list of must-see attractions.
When the Marché asked* me to put together a list of artisan products I like, I jumped for joy, because I know every alley by heart. Therefore, on an early morning in late April while the market was relatively quiet, I brought my camera and captured unique Quebec-made products you’ll find not only at the Marché du Vieux-Port, but also in my cupboards.
In other words, here are some flavourful souvenirs to bring back home.
