Opened to the public in 1933 on a former lacrosse field, Marche Jean-Talon is home to about 300 vendors selling everything from wine and cheese to corn right out of the truck to canned maple syrup.
My family and I walked around for a few hours, buying maple syrup and treats and scoping out all of the deliciously fresh fruit. We ate a French-style meal of bread, cheese, wine and chocolate. My four favorite things in the world. I have to say the goat cheese (in the picture with the dark rind) was one of the best cheeses I’ve had in my life. It was soft and creamy but the taste was strong and acidic. We ate in the atrium with everyone else who was hungry that day. We happily sipped our rose wine in public. Got to love Canada.
