Seeing the Eastern Townships from a different perspective

 

While on vacation in the Eastern Townships, with your basket over your arm, stock up on delicacies at one of the region’s many public markets. Here, the freshness of the products is matched only by the passion of the producers who will introduce them to you. Whether your adventure takes place on a bike, by car, or in hiking boots, it will be more fun on a full stomach!


Markets across the Townships


What do the public markets in Lac-Mégantic, Granby, and Knowlton-Lac-Brome have in common? What do the Marché public de la petite école in Lingwick, the Marché champêtre in Ayer’s Cliff, and the Marché Mante du Carré in Danville share? An abundance of seasonal products, the unrivalled taste of just-picked vegetables and fruits, fine cheeses, and other products from the area… and of course, the caring nature of those who produce this marvellous fare! All of this can also be found by stopping at the Marché Locavore in Racine, the Marché de la Gare in Sherbrooke, the markets in Scotstown, Bedford, and Melbourne, or at the Marché de la Station gourmande in Farnham!

 

At many public market stalls, you’ll discover products grown or created by “flavour designers” (Créateurs de saveurs). Stock up on little jars, bottles, and packages that store the best the Townships has to offer. Honey, vinaigrettes, pickles, alcoholic beverages, and chocolate are only a few of the items produced by more than 50 businesses in the region. Head out for a drive or head back home with a taste of the Eastern Townships in your bags!

 

The sociability of buying locally


When you visit a public market, you’ll enjoy the opportunity of being in a welcoming area where you can roam at will. In the Eastern Townships, public markets are locations for meeting and chatting with others, perpetuating the tradition of local commerce where producers and merchants welcome visitors with fresh, original and tasty agri-food products. Experience local excellence at a fair price – whatever your tastes. 


Public markets are most often open on Saturday mornings and promise your taste buds a world of delights.

 

When you visit a public market, you’ll be visiting the region and delighting all your senses. See, hear, smell, touch… savour the Eastern Townships!
