Market Day


Every once in a while, I like to head over to the Jean-Talon Market to buy fresh produce. On this beautiful sunny Fall day, the marketplace was full of shoppers with grocery carts and shopping bags in tow. It’s now apple harvesting time so of course, apples of all varieties were in abundance. Many merchants put out plates of sliced fruit or vegetables to taste before buying. I tried some lip-smacking sweet nectarines and pears today. It’s also interesting to visit the surrounding shops that line the perimeter of the market. The aroma of the different foods is very enticing. Bison burgers, fish and chips, sausages… The colorful displays of vegetables and the flower stalls are a sight to behold. Shopping at the Jean Talon Market is one of those Montreal things that is so simple yet so defines the community spirit of the city.

    I felt a certain kinda of nostalgia seeing these pictures. As my fellow mexican above, I’ve been in Montréal (twice) and I remember my autumn trip as the best (summer was ok, but way too chaud for me). Maybe some pumpkin pictures would do the final touch and make me burst into tears… :-)
