March to a Marché

Fiddleheads, firm and green, are a sure sign of spring.

Montreal's open air markets are bursting with Springs finest produce right now and I suggest you take as stroll and get inspired, or at the very least, buy a bundle of cheery tulips and bring a little spring indoors.

Miranda and I took Noah and Tulip for a walk along the Lachine Canal and got lured in to Marché Atwater to check out the colorful stalls. Such delights! I must soon return to indulge with some cash in my pocket and a method for getting precious produce home other than the bottom of the diaper bag.

And more market pleasures...

I miss fiddleheads. We used to pick them in the forest where I grew up in NB. Steamed with butter and salt. Ah!

It all looks so devine!!!

Your pictures are absolutely stunning as is your 'Lassie' dog!!

I've been meaning to ask- does this market you speak of have many roaming stray dogs, dry mango pits strewn all over the ground and men screaming that they have fingernail clippers for sail for only 31 cents?

thank you for the pictures of the market: they're lovely. isn't the view from the top of mont st-grégoire lovely? our old CSA farm is a stone's throw from there.

Zaak- You're right, nothing beats fresh fiddleheads. Also, your description of a market reminds me of S.E. Asia!

Miranda- Yes, they sure turned some heads!

Mandy- thanks so much!

Freya- Welcome to UtHC! Thank you for your kind words. It's my sister's dog and her name is Tulip!

Jen- Welcome and thanks for stopping by!

Kelli Ann- Welcome to you as well, my fellow Quebec-er! What is CSA, if you don't mind me asking?
