Good news this morning! After 66 years of living under Toronto's shadow in terms of street food, the city of Montreal has now lifted the ban to allow Street Food vendors to flood the streets of Montreal!

That means you can expect scrumptious fried chicken (Le Coq Frit is actually owned by director of the night market and Chinatown merchant Yifang Hu), slushie drinks, and artisanal ice cream in flavours like lemon yuzu, strawberry lychee, Vietnamese coffee or taro.

Admission to the market is free. Most dishes range from $4 to $8, with premium dishes costing between $9 and $12.
