Step back in time to New France and experience a magical town market like never before.

In honour of the city’s 375th anniversary, Montreal is hosting a unique event called Dating in New France.

Not only will guests learn what it was like to live under the French regime, but they will have the pleasure of walking around a “festive spring market” and meeting all sorts of characters from the time period.

There will be live musicians, as well as craftsman and entertainment for children. And of course, there will be lots of food, from freshly baked bread to artisanal jams.

Taking place outside Pointe-A-Calliere in scenic Old Port, be sure to visit this eighteenth century market this May.
