Plant selling in full swing now, also local asparagus at last. Also wanted to point out that they have finally changed the picnic tables in the centre of the covered area. There are eight tables now (in addition to the high stools and tables closer to Henri-Julien) and they are far easier for people of all ages to sit at. The new bagel place in the lane north of rue Alma also has a long bench by the wooden fence and bistro tables and chairs, and of course there is also seating at Place Shamrock, the parklet just west of the market on Shamrock by the fire station.
I had written to the market about the picnic tables and will write again to congratulate them on the improvement.
