Made in Québec: Cultures Collide at Montréal’s Marché Bonsecours
The sun reflecting off of the conspicuous silver dome of Montreal’s marché Bonsecours is a beacon to the curious. Follow the light and be guided to the entrance of this magnificent and imposing building, with a vibrant and storied history, which sits on the bank of the St Lawrence River. Step inside and be welcomed into a bustling concourse which houses a dizzying array of boutiques and art galleries offering the crème de la crème of Québecois, Canadian, and aboriginal design. Artwork, clothing, jewelry, kitchenware, and more can all be found here and there are a handful of restaurants as well. For a journey back in time, visit the Caberet du Roy—a theme restaurant which revisits early 18th century Montréal. The marché is a must-do while in town and serves as a physical reminder of the myriad of wonderful cultures that comprise the fabric of la belle province.
