Say Fromage at Marché Jean Talon

36 comments
My recipe for a perfect weekend is a visit to a market filled with an abundance of everything that we expect in a market and some, including speaking French, s'il vous plâit. That was the case when we visited the Marché Jean Talon in Montréal last weekend. This Marché is very French offering the best of Québécois gourmand and for the garden. We stopped by here after a long drive from Toronto to discover, to shop and to eat. Come and discover the Marché with its colourful and delicious offerings.
Québec produces the best fromage in Canada. We tried and purchased both the Québec Blue Cheese topped with local Apricot jam and the Cremeux de Jura fromage from France. 
Selection of Quebec fromage. 
Fromage de France. 
After our hunt for fromage, we had to look for our Baguette. 
Can't help to admire these pastries. 
I also purchased some  Portuguese tarts (Natas). 
Of course, I purchased some Macarons. The fleur d'oranger and pistache are my usual favourites. I also purchased the Abricot The Noir, Lavande and Caramel Fleur de Sel.
I haven't eaten tacos for so long. We tried these soft tacos with pulled pork and pickled onions.
Something unique from the Marché were the Bison ribs. Would you like to try some?
Also unique from the Marché is the Canard (Duck) sausage which I haven't seen anywhere else. Here I am trying it.
It was actually delicious, quite sweet, not spicy at all. 
Legumes de Quebec.
Looks at these yellow tomatoes. They look so fresh and delicious.
These look so perfect and yummy to make as a salad with those tomatoes. 
So unique in this Marché are these fruit stands for tasting. We were so full from trying these fruits and vegetables.
I have never seen so many apricots. Both the apricots and strawberries were so sweet. 
The Marché has a huge section of flowers, plants, herbs and vegetables for planting as far as the eye can see.
 Lavande de Québec.
Colourful flowers, all kinds of herbs and tomato plants. 
An abundance of flowers. 
Bonjour Dahlias! 
To cleanse the palette, all from the Marché Jean Talon. 
The Cremeux de Jura fromage from France, baguette and the cherries.


This weekend is dedicated to all the Fathers and to my late Father, who enjoyed shopping for different kinds of Food.


Happy Father's Day!

    1. Hello Anouka, the cremeux was my favourite. It was so oozing creamy cheese and tasted so good. That's a good thing you stopped by the Marché when you were in Montréal. It's a fun place to visit.

  2. Well you better have a big shopping bag Pamela. Please pick me up some Québec Blue Cheese topped with local Apricot jam on a stick, some yellow tomatoes, three Portugese custard tarts, some fleur d'oranger and Pain d'epices macarons, a tray of white Stocks, a couple of tomato plants and don't squish the cheese!

  13. what a market pamela! they would have to literally roll me out of there. hahaha my eyes went straight to the chocolate croissants and macarons. i'm loving all of the fresh fruit. there are so many options. my father passed away in 2007. his death hit me really hard. so i understand how you feel. i guess that's why i'm so close with my mom. it can be hard. ((hug))

  22. This is so cool! I wish we had the concept of 'markets', but we really lack a culture here. I wish I was in France!
