The Greater Québec City area is bursting with local food. As a place where dedicated farmers and city‑dwellers in search of fresh local food meet, public markets change and come alive with the seasons and are an absolute must for any food‑lover.

Stroll through the sunbathed halls of Grand Marché or tap into the local vibe at the seasonal neighbourhood markets in and around the city.

Québec City’s Grand Marché

Québec City’s new public market is an essential destination for local flavours. Here you’ll find everything under one roof: fine chocolate makers, a brew pub, coffee roasters, fishmongers, butchers, and more. This foodie village features themed sections and a restaurant serving up delicious dishes made with local, seasonal fare.
