Pointe à Callière 18th Century Public Market

Seems like I keep going back in time recently, Wednesday it was vintage cars, today we were transported back to the 18th century at the Pointe à Callière annual public market.

This is a great event and fun for all the family – particularly given the great weather.

The market runs until tomorrow, so if you are iin town, well worth heading down to the market – I just wish shopping today was like this.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
