Farmer’s market in Montreal

I just got back from visiting Rose in Montreal. She took me to the Jean-Talon mostly outdoor Farmer’s Market there. Wow! The cauliflowers were enormous and cost only 1.50. The butternut squash too were huge and went for .50 a pound. They had Empire apples that went for 3.00 a basket( maybe .99 a pound) that are crispy, tart and sweet. And there are big baskets of red peppers that are cheap and also sweet. In Texas one apple could cost  2.00.

 None of my Texas peppers tasted so sweet. I think maybe that the extra hours of sun up north makes everything delicious and large. There were rows upon rows of farmers selling their produce. Plus there are stores that sell every other kind of food item you might want. What a treat.

Next fall I want to bring up my Victorio Mill and make applesauce galore.

Mmmm. Your post made me extremely hungry. (It also made me want to visit Montreal, apparently quite a vegetarian Mecca!)
