Friends, I don't think I even need to tell you how historically rich Montreal is. While the History major in me is screaming to lay out all the facts, I'll just keep it very brief and say this: Montreal's roots go incredibly deep, and every once in a while, that fact should be celebrated.\nWhich is why the concept of an 18th century type market is, IMO, so awesome. And this August, Montreal his going to be hosting exactly that.\nA photo posted by @sierraladot on Aug 22, 2015 at 8:38am PDT\nLocated in the Old Port, and hosted by the Pointe-à-Callière museum, the 18th-Century Public Market is described as a replica of the Montreal (/New France) public marketplaces of the 1750s.\nThe event will host a whole bunch of historical activities, 18th century products (like jams, cheeses, cider, and spruce beer), and feature storytellers, musicians, and artisans. So, if you're down to immerse yourself in New France for a day, you know exactly where you need to go.\nA photo posted by Wailing Chan (@lingling_26) on Aug 22, 2015 at 3:48pm PDT\nPointe-à-Callière's 18th-Century Public Market will be going down this August 27 and 28.
