In search of HONEY CRISP APPLES in downtown Montreal (including Atwater Market)

Has anyone spotted any good honeycrisp apples in downtown Montreal, or are they not in season yet? My weekly perusal of PA's grocery aisles today was not fruitful. Thank you!

  1. may still be slightly early, but there's always far fewer of those for some reason. harder to grow than macintosh, maybe?

    1. Last 2 years, the first place that had 'em was the little stand outside Mont-Royal metro. I haven't started looking around for them yet but they should start popping up soon, I would think.

        They had some last weekend. However, I went to Hemmingford to pick my own and they were not ready yet.

      2. thanks for the heads up everyone!

        1. Two or three stalls at the Atwater Market had local (I presume) honeycrisps this afternoon. They're bigger than usual but very crisp and juicy.

            I second what Carswell says. I bought some last friday, along with some Cortlands at the Atwater market (stall in front of the SAQ at the market - not the big SAQ across the street) and they are delicious- big, but delicious as are the Cortlands- crisp, juice, yummmyyy

          2. I had never heard of honeycrisp apples until reading your question. I googled to find out what they are and I must say they sound enticing. Here is a link to a list of growers in Quebec. Maybe you can go and pick your own.
