To promote artisanal Québec cheeses (after the recent scare) an event at JTM, and evidently at other Public Markets - my news is from a local neighbourhood paper so it only concerns JTM.
Meet cheese producers at market cheese shops (Saturday only) and taste their cheeses, and chef's cheese preparations.
At Jean-Talon Market, display on an artisanal fromagerie up on the market mezzanine. Photos and many objects from a small fromagerie on display from 10 am - 4 pm.
There will also be cheesemakers on hand to answer questions.
Salle Mandoline, 2nd storey of the market (there is a lift) from 11 am - 3 pm, free tastings of Christmas cheese apps prepared by chef Émilie Brochu, based on the cheeses. Free of charge.
There will also be a fanfare in the market, to liven things up (though there are an awful lot of people on a Saturday, since the market has gone indoors).
Probably for people who live more southwesterly, there are also events at Atwater?
