One of the most enjoyable activities of the summer is heading to the farmer's market. Even if you aren't planning out a meal or shopping for ingredients, there's something so satisfying about walking by all of the food vendors and seeing the fresh, vibrant produce of the season and all the other delicious wares to be found.
Normally, taking a trip to a farmer's market means heading to marché Jean-Talon, Atwater, or Bonsecours, which can be a bit out of the way for some folks. But thanks to non-profit group L'Autre Marché, farmer's markets are coming closer to home for many Montrealers, including all those living in the Plateau.
Taking over the pedestrianized walkway that is Prince Arthur this Thursday, Marché Prince Arthur will be bringing all the joys of a farmer's market into the heart of the Plateau. Beginning at 3pm, live music and circus-esque performances will be see on the street, along with quite a few food stands.
Decadent cheeses, fresh vegetables, succulent meats, and delicious desserts will all be in abundance at Marché Prince Arthur, giving you tons to cheese (and eat) from. Non-food related items will also be sold, with a stand dedicated to accessories and home decor items on-site as well.
Marché Prince Arthur will be open to the public starting next Thursday, June 9th (a delay from the original June 2nd launch) and you can find all the details at the official Facebook event page.
