The event name, Sudbest, perfectly captures the goal of the event. Organizers call it the Sud-Ouest's "largest commercial revival initiative," bringing forward as many of the borough's merchants, artists and artisans as possible.
"The Market is intended to be a tailor-made economic stimulus tool for artists and merchants in the Sud-Ouest by giving them a commercial opportunity to promote themselves as part of an event reflecting the neighborhood," said restauranteur Gaelle Cerf, one of the event leaders, in a statement.
At the market, you can expect to find a 100% Quebec wine and cider bar run by the owners of the new convenience store le Cinq à Sept (Ville-Émard), a bloody caesars bar at Lord William Pub and a "post-pandemic" beer made specially for the event by 4 Origines Microbrewery.
You'll find food trucks, a Perles et Paddock oyster bar, jerk chicken grilled by Boom J, Food'elles and more.
At this month's event, DJ Kelly (Rap Mommies) will be spinning on Saturday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. On Sunday, you'll find Jazz St-Henri, 99 Wolves, and ELMNT at the DJ booth.
Fifteen stands are expected at the first Le Sudbest weekend, according to communications coordinator Julie Poulin. But Poulin told MTL Blog there are already 35 kiosks confirmed for the next event on August 28 and 29.
The third and final (for now) Sudbest weekend is scheduled for September 25 and 26.
Entry is free and dogs are allowed on a leash.

Various brands of frozen mangoes distributed in several provinces in Canada have been recalled by the country's food inspection agency due to possible Hepatitis A contamination. Some incidents of illness have been reported in Canada associated with consuming them.
If you have one of the recalled mango products, the Canada Food Inspection Agency recommends throwing the item away immediately or returning it to the store where it was purchased.
The following frozen mango brands have been recalled:
Nature's Touch: 2-kilogram bag, best before November 9, 2022
Compliments Mango Mania: 600-gram bag, best before November 10, 2022, and December 18, 2022
Irresistibles Mango Chunks: 600-gram bag, best before November 10, 2022
President's Choice Mango Chunks: 600-gram bag, best before November 6, 2022, and November 10, 2022
The agency says that food items contaminated with the Hepatitis A virus may not look or smell spoiled.
According to the food inspection authority, the viral illness is "usually mild and starts about 15 to 50 days after the contaminated food is eaten."
Though it generally goes away by itself in a week or two, the virus can last up to six months, causing inflammation of the liver — symptoms can include fever, low appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, and yellowing in the whites of the eyes and skin (jaundice).
Montreal's Le Boulevard shopping centre can stay in business after all. The news comes following an April announcement that Le Boulevard would be closing its doors after 68 years in operation, as the city of Montreal prepared to take over the property rights for the extension of the Société de transport de Montreal (STM)'s blue line.
According to a news release by Quebec's Ministry of Transport, the iconic shopping centre can remain open past December 1 when the STM officially becomes the owner of the property.
"One of the goals of the work was to limit the project's impact on the shopping centre and the activities of merchants," reads the ministry's statement.
The task force proposed revising the size of the terminal, the parking area and the centre's storage space for construction materials in order to preserve the building as a solution so that merchants could have the opportunity to continue to sell goods and services to shoppers, the news release says.
According to the ministry, the Quebec government's acquisition of the shopping centre was a decision made by the Tribunal administratif du Québec and was not foreseen by the STM.
At the time this was written, Le Boulevard's Facebook page was no longer active.
