An 18th-Century public market is coming to Montreal this summer

Mar 19 2018, 8:56 pm

Montreal is known for its summer markets but this one is a blast from the past that should not be missed.

On August 25 and 26 Pointe-à-Callière will transform into an 18th-century public market.

To give the market the 18th-century feel, there will be actors on-site dressed as merchants, entertainers, craftspeople, and farmers from the time period.

Be sure to pick up some specialty food products from the 18th century, including jellies, jams, maple products, cider, and spruce beer.

This is the perfect way to celebrate Quebec’s history and experience what it was like in Montreal over 200 years ago!
