Le Marché du Vieux-Port, Quebec City

When you think of Quebec City what is the first landmark that comes to mind? Probably Chateau Frontenac, right? However, when our family is asked this question our answer will be Le Marché du Vieux-Port em Quebec City.

We love to explore markets and since it was so cold during our two days there and on the last day we decided to check it out. We thought it would be “ok”, but to our surprise it was fantastic!

The first place we stopped at was La Route des Indes, where they have all sorts of spices, teas, jams, jellies and international foods… It’s definitely the place to go after having a meal, because you will feel hungry.

During our visit they were getting ready for a “Cabane a Sucre” inside the market, so you could see lots of maple syrup producers selling their goods, along with more jams and some local wine.

In the market you can also buy fruits, vegetables, some pastries and much more. This post is short on pictures, but this market is definitely a must go when in Quebec City and it is the perfect place to hide when it’s too cold outside.
