The Kiosques de la relève welcomed their very first producers this week-end! These next-generation market stalls, designed by Kermesse
, are turnkey spaces that can be rented by the day. They are aimed at up-and-coming food-related businesses looking to introduce their products to shoppers at the city’s public markets.
These kiosks are available right now. Interested companies are asked to contact the Corporation de gestion des marches publics de Montréal by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 514-937-7754, ext. 46.

AN INITIATIVE TAILOR-MADE FOR YOUNG COMPANIES
The pilot project is designed to meet two crucial needs of young companies seeking to sell their products in our public markets: stall rental by the day, and minimal infrastructure and commercialization costs. For this first trial year, the project consists of three stalls at Jean-Talon Market. A second phase, involving the city’s other public markets, is planned if vendors show sufficient interest in the new format.
The project is funded through the Programme Proximité of the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec, a program run under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, which includes a $2 billion investment for strategic shared-cost initiatives. The Canada-Quebec agreement for implementing the Partnership has total funding of $293 million over five years, provided by the federal government (60%) and the province (40%).
