South Shore Farmers' Market
I saw a few threads on farmers' markets for various areas of Montreal, so I thought I'd start one for the South Shore as well. It's in LaPrairie.
Last weekend, we discovered an absolutely amazing sandwich there, sold ($4) at the fresh sausage place (no idea what the name of it is, but there is only one)... it's a pork-steak sandwich, they offer it either with BBQ sauce or tzatziki... both are really, really good, so much that I am planning to go there tomorrow at lunch just for that!
Also, just past the market, a few hundred meters away, on the right, there is this restaurant (looks like a chalet) and they have amazing BBQ-ed chicken and ribs! You can either eat there or take it to go.
So for those of you who like discovering various markets, make sure you try that pork-steak sandwich, you won't regret it!
As for the market itself, it's the only one on the South Shore if I am not mistaking, and I find that the offering is pretty varied.
This week-end I discovered there's supposed to be some kind of market, in the UPA building in Longueuil. Found this info in the Courrier du Sud on page 29 along with the address:
Marché de chez nous
555, boul. Roland-Therrien
I think it is mostly a cheese store, but from what I've read, from July 3rd there is also fruits, vegetable, meats, ...
I didn't have time to visit yet, if someone did, let us know.
Ah... I found the address:
Marché des Jardiniers
1200, chemin de Saint-Jean,
La Prairie (Québec) J5R 2L7
Unfortunately, I really don't know the name of the stand for the sandwich, but it is sold at the only stand where they sell a variety of fresh sausages, so I am sure it will be easy to find.
