For Montrealers, the true mark of the beginning of the warm season might be the return of the plant and flower stands at our public markets.
Well, the wait is finally over. Horticulturalists are officially starting to make their return to both the Jean-Talon and Atwater markets.
A spokesperson for the Marchés publics de Montréal confirmed to MTL Blog that the full offer of plants and flowers should be set up by Friday, May 7 in preparation for Mothers' Day weekend, which they explained marks the beginning of the season.
An April 28 post to the Atwater Market's Facebook page indicates some plant stands have already begun to pop up.
Whether you're going to add some colour to your apartment, plant your garden, or just snap some photos beneath the colourful bowers, the public markets' outdoor vendors are an essential part of the Montreal spring/summer experience.
Get all the details below.
