"18th-century public market" Seasonal Events Tip by brazwhazz
Seasonal Events, Montreal: 24 reviews and 27 photos
Every year, during the third of fourth weekend of August, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum organizes an 18th-century public market around Place Royale.
The site is not very big, but the public market is an excellent opportunity to sample some locally-produced food. It is my belief that everyone should try spruce beer (which, like root beer, contains no alcohol) at least once in their lifetime!
There are also some traditional handicrafts, with costumed artisans happy to show you the history behind their products, as well as games and animations.
Address: Place Royale
Directions: In Old Montreal, between De La Commune and Saint-Paul streets, behind Notre-Dame Basilica.
