Michel did it - the most amazing Farmers' Market we have ever seen. It has 5 city blocks of produce and goodies, and is surrounded by small shops containing everything else. Although the produce stands are open only from May - October, the rest of the market is available all year long.
Since both Michel and Diane, and Bob and I live in motor homes, we are limited as to what we can buy - but oh, the selection!
I guess there has to be some compensation for having to live in a frigid country for half the year. I would be totally spoiled if I shopped here every week.
I come out of this next shop with a bottle of Balsamic Vinegar with visions of salads and Italian bread for dipping very much on my mind.
A block away from the market, Little Italy is preparing a street fair, so we take in all the sights we can. Great fun!
At the end of the street, I find this old church which has been converted to Condos. Michel tells us that there are so many churches in Montreal (and many cities in Canada) with attendance way down, many are saving the beautiful facades and converting them to much needed condos. Interesting times we live in. Exhausted after a long day, we return to say our goodbye's, have a farewell dinner, and prepare for our next adventure in Quebec City.
