The Bonsecours Market, acknowledged as one of Canada's finest heritage buildings, has become an essential stop on any visit to Old Montreal.
Headquarters of the Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec and the Institute of Design Montréal, the Market houses 15 boutiques featuring top-quality Quebec creations: crafts, fashions, accessories and jewellery, design items, reproduction Quebec furniture and more.
Its restaurants and their terraces, open during warm weather, offer local fare. You can even share a meal in the 17th-century ambience of the famous Cabaret du Roy.
There are ongoing exhibitions of contemporary photography and arts and crafts, with free admission.
Different rooms are available to rent. They are suitable for events of all kinds, from banquets to trade fairs, launches, meetings and press conferences, for example.
