Text by Marie-Ève Lanthier, special collaboration

The Marché Artisans is coming back to life since the end of the pandemic and, to celebrate sugar shack season, is offering a special brunch menu.

Thus, until April 10, it will be possible to taste, at a cost of $45, a sugar shack brunch at the Marché Artisans.

A traditional gourmet menu

With this menu, you’ll get a gastronomic menu, although traditional.

Your taste buds will enjoy pea soup, homemade pork belly cassoulet, slow poached for 48 hours with Virgin Mady maple syrup, soft-boiled eggs cooked at low temperature with fleur de sel and truffle oil, caramelized carrots and potatoes with homemade ketchup and country bread.

For dessert, you will have mignardises such as an opera cake, maple sugar tartlets and poor man’s pudding.

And the menu would not be complete without offering, of course, maple taffy on snow.

Good to know:

  • A vegetarian version is also available as well as a children’s menu for $18.
  • Brunch is only available from Friday to Sunday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and reservations are not possible as it is first come, first served.
  • It’s also possible, under certain conditions, to pick up your brunch or have it delivered to your home.

In addition to the brunch, it will be possible to have a tasting of maple products with the Quebec company Virgin Mady which produces an organic syrup and adheres to sustainable environmental practices.

You will also be able to purchase many local products at the Marché Artisans, including desserts, pizzas, cheeses and fine chocolates, as well as products for sale from fine local companies.
