Montreal is going to be doing a little bit of time travel this summer as an 18th-century public market is blasting in from the past.
On August 24 and 25, Pointe-à-Callière will transform into a different era.
Guests can learn about the city life under the French regime, meet characters, and admire the know-how of the First Nations.

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.
Market-goers can pick up specialty food products from the 18th century, including jellies, jams, maple products, cider, and spruce beer.
A perfect way to celebrate Quebec’s history and experience what it was like in Montreal over 200 years ago.
