The famous public market organized annually on Place Royale by the Pointe-à-Callières museum celebrates its 30th anniversary.
Every summer, it recreates the atmosphere of the public markets of the French Regime, with a gallery of authentic characters interpreted by talented actors, but also with dozens of craftsmen who invite the public to discover the trades of yesteryear: wool, luthier, shingler, weaver, lacemaker, bark canoe maker, sawyer, or wood turner. The experience is both fun and educational.
As the place was also an important place for meetings and exchanges between the Aboriginals and the French, visitors are invited to come and meet a new generation of Abenaki, Anishinabe, Kanyen’kehà:ka, Mi’gmaq and Wendat artisans. in the contemporary section of the Market.
Finally, the varied gourmet offer is obviously always there, especially with the Brewskey brewery, an Old Montreal institution that brewed an exclusive beer for the event: Pinte-à-Callières, a lightly hoppy blond lager , will be offered at the Market Inn.
