Kosher Uncovered at Atwater Market



I'm such a market nerd.

It feels good to take a break away from a bustling every day life especially to surround myself with beautiful greens at an outdoor market like Atwater Market. I urge all moms to leave their kitchens to explore this place at least just once this season.

After all, tis the season to veggie/ fruit/ flower/plant/seed/ herb shop outdoors; or if you're a market nerd like me :), you can run and jump around amid aisles of lemon thyme or swiss chard; stand under pretty hanging tomato trees, chitchat with smiling farmers, or even better pet a total stranger's poodle; that's living to me. Atwater Market is a farmers' market located in the Little Burgundy area of Montreal. It opened in 1933.

On a mission to finding kosher food at Atwater market, I lucked-out after stepping into Les Délices du Marché. A quaint shop with an array of certified imported kosher products. Products like, citrons marinés (marinated lemons), anchovies, coconut oils, Prana dried fruits, gluten free crackers, Mighty Leaf Marrakesh tea - a favorite- and yes, a variety of hot sauces. For those of you who keep kosher in Montreal, don't think twice about heading to Atwater for a charming shopping experience. Enjoy some pics below, a glimpse of what Little Burgundy has to offer everyone!
