We visited in October and really loved wandering around, sampling local products and stocking up on unique foods. The spice shop is unreal- so fresh and a huge assortment. Also tried an amazing array of smoked fish & cured meats, local honey, jams, maple products, and fresh produce. People are friendly and sell high quality products. The macaroons were too tempting, we made off with a box of 20! A fun place to visit with kids & find pantry items. Maple products were the best prices I saw during our time in Quebec.

A few hours fishing trout in an igloo is a fun experience and wind break. After turning in our rental gear which was $60 for 3 of us to fish about 2 hours or so. We shopped for cheese baguette salmon pâté’ dk chocolate covered blueberries & voila’ lunch!!
Canada does it right for family fun. There is an outdoor hot cocoa cider coffee stand - cute little tykes sliding area on the ice in the marina area for kids also a fun little kids maze ( parents can easily see the entire top and watch them scurry through ) an easy access balsam lined ramp to the icy mating dotted with inflated igloos and may ice fishing aids readily able to help and answer questions. What a fun day !

Visited around 10am on a Tuesday in February. After checking their website which claims the market is open year-round, there were only 5 or 6 stalls open, about 80% of the building was vacant.

Understandably it was winter but this was a bit of a disappointment.

Bought two cheeses from the cheese shop and the lady there took the cheese I selected, went into the small back office area to find a bag and plastic knife and then handed the bag to me.

When I opened the bag up later that day, I found that she had only out one cheese in the bag.

I’m sure this isn’t indicative of other vendors or the experience in the summer months when the market would be busy but it was the only damper on a good trip to QC.

This farmers market is a must go for Quebec culture. Many different foods and crafts (cider, seafood, maple products, wines and beers, cheese!). Open all year round! Venders are kind and will want to chat with you!

The market is within easy walking distance of anywhere within the walls of Old Quebec and even in winter had plenty of stalls. Lots of stuff for tourists: ice cider, local wines, cheeses, cassis liquor, local handicrafts and toiletries. But also great for locals as there are plenty of seafood, deli, and kitchen staples. Give yourself plenty of time to explore and try all the samples. And if you like tea you'll find the largest selection I've ever seen!
