Pre-made tourtiere for cooking at home

We will be in Montreal for a couple of days with a kitchen at our disposal. (In the 20 or so times I've been to Montreal, this is a first.) Unfortunately, we'll also have a 2-year old, so dinners out will be a rarity.

It will be cold, and the only thing I can think of when it's cold in Montreal is tourtiere. Can anyone recommend a place that sells pre-made or heat-and-eat tourtiere? The best I've had was at APDC Cabane au Sucre, so anything that comes (or surpasses that) would be fantastic.

  1. Also try the frozen tourtières from Les Fougères, available at Marché des saveurs in the Jean-Talon Market:

    Marché des Saveurs du Québec
    (Marché Jean-Talon)
    280, Place du Marché du Nord
    Montreal, QC, H2S 1A1
    (514) 271-3811

    and other places: peruse the site

    1. I like the duck one (Cerf et Canrad) at the saussicier at the Atwater Market. William J Walter. I also enjoy the one Viandal sells in Verdun. Neither has fois gras in it, but duck fat makes everything better.

      1. I think some of the butchers at Atwater |Market has frozen tourtieres.

        1. Thank you all! We will be at all three places I'm sure - Atwater and Jean-Talon for the markets, and Verdun (where I've never been before) for the supposedly excellent playground next to the circus school.

          1. Maison du Roti, 1969 Mt Royal E
            TA, 4520 Parc & 5525 Monkland
            Pied du Cochon, 536 Duluth E
            Binerie Mont-Royal, 367 Mt Royal E
            de Froment et de Sève, 2355 Beaubien E

            All the chain bakeries make them as well, although you should be aware that tourtiere is a seasonal item with a greater and wider availability as it gets closer to Christmas.
