I did discover some pictures that I took last year while visiting Montreal (aka: Home Sweet Home) just before planting season. It was kind of a treat to revisit these pictures. I hope you think so too.
This is the entrance to the Atwater Market. It is a stone’s throw from downtown Montreal. It opened in 1933. Were it not such a landmark, it would not occupy such a prime piece of real estate.
With row after row of farm stalls. Farmers from surrounding areas set up shop for the warmer months (April to November’ish)
All filled with gorgeous plants. An absolute riot of colour.
This is the outdoor corridor that runs between the outdoor farmer stalls and the indoor market.
The indoor corridor has markets with fabulous foods. Boulangerie (bread), charcuterie (meats), fromagerie (cheese), poisonnerie (fish), and the outdoor cremerie (ice cream & sorbet) etc.
It is a wonderful place to visit, particularly after a long winter.
I am linking up and getting in the Spring groove with Ms. Tootsie and Fertilizer Friday. Please visit, it will lift your gardening soul.
