love checking out interesting food stores in other places. This is a must. You can get all sorts of goodies such as charcuterie, chocolates, crackers, beers condiments, etc that are hard to find anywhere else. I was afraid my purchases would put my bad over the weight limit.

This was our third visit to Auberge J.A. Moissan. Host and hostess Clement and Natalie always have made our stay terrific.

This is the oldest market in North America. It has a sweet charm to it. Some great buys inside. And friendly people surrounding the store I felt was adding to the charm.

Very friendly and lot's of delicious food! Cheese, charcuterie, treats.... Stop in and pick up some eats to bring back to the hotel for lunch. Worked well for us staying at the Hilton with two young kids.

This place is great, grocery store chains can learn a whole lot about running a store from these people. They were and still are selling a great selection of bread, cheese, sausages, and prepared foods to eat. Now this place is fashion with people wanting more high quality foods in their lives. I love this store and its helpful employees... More

Walking on a self guided tour, we came across this great grocery store (oldest in North America), and stopped to look inside. They sell everything food related, and then some. Nice fresh vegetables, meats, baked goods, wines, beers, and much more. Walking further through the store we came upon a small area, offering a sit-down lunch, which I might add,... More

Great variety of snacks, we spent hours looking around, making multiple trips throughout the weekend that we were there. Great selection of chocolates, beverages and munchies. This is a great place to pick up local items. Everything was delicious. The pictures that I have added are some of the snacks that we picked up. Go out of your way to... More

Yes it's probably a little overpriced but it's also like an amusement park to a foodie like me. It's kind of deceptive from the outside. It looks small but it seems to keep going and going once you enter the place. Meats, cheese, tea, coffee, olive oil, you name it and they have it. It's a must see when in... More

This store is a slice of history; but, I would not advise making maple sugar purchases here (you can do better at the Farmer's Market) and even an interesting salt I purchased was $2 more than at a shop down the street! Isles are narrow, so it can be crowded and the merchants didn't seem very welcoming at all. Seems... More
