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.

  1. An address would be appreciated.

    And the name of the stand where you had that amazing sandwich.

      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.

        it sounds like Stefan Frick from LaColle.

        I got told that he sells his sausages at the La Prairie market, but I was not there yet.

        Need to go check it out ...

          Having spent half my childhood there, it is Lacolle. I know, I know, I just being picky.

    2. 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
      Longueuil, Qc

      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.

        Unless things have changed in the past couple of years, it's nothing more than a bing dépanneur du terroir not worth going out of your way for. Much better selection at Marché des saveurs at JTM, not to mention de fruit and produce that are also alot more plentiful at JTM.
