Old Montreal's 'new' public market
Published Saturday, August 29, 2009 9:15PM EDT
The streets of Old Montreal have been transformed into an 18th-century public market this weekend.
The Pointe-a-Calliere museum is hosting the re-enactment of the city's first public march�, complete with pirates, storytellers, and musicians.
Children are getting the chance to get into the act, by dressing up in uniforms like those soldiers wore in the 1750 and marching on the cobblestone streets.
Modern-day shoppers can enjoy old-time goods, including wild fruit jams, buckwheat pancakes, and cheese and sausages made in a traditional style.
The market continues Sunday, rain or shine.
