Visit to Atwater Market

I am going to Atwater tomorrow with a friend. Are there any shops that I should make sure to visit while there?

    Les Douceurs du Marche for sure.

      I like to spend some time at Fromagerie du Marche - I've always had knowledgeable staff recommend very good cheese and charcuterie.
      Also, you shouldn't miss the Warshaw store across the street for all you kitchen utensils and more needs. I love to browse in that store, and sometimes find very unusual but useful things.

        Thanks for your feedback! Today is turning out to be a gorgeous day. My friend and our kids are in for a real treat.

          If you want to spend time browsing cheeses, Fromagerie Atwater has a far more extensive selection than the others. And if you head outside, towards the canal, there's a Havre Aux Glaces, which is hopefully open by now.

            Havres is indeed openon weekends, but I'm not sure it's open on weekdays yet - but it's not a big trek to cross the street to see.

              It was open when we went yesterday afternoon. We were too full with all the other goodies we picked up to have any ice cream but I promised myself I would be back.
