    It's harvest time!

    All news

    It's harvest time!,
    Harvest time is when fruits and vegetables can be found in abundance at the stands in your public markets. The odours, tastes and colours of locally grown berries and vegetables: everything smells and looks good, and the warm atmosphere makes us want to go home to cook up our provisions. It’s the time of year to get together with family or friends to make preserves and jams, and hold barbecues and corn roasts with fresh produce from local producers.

    Harvest Time: The Perfect Corn Boil
    Corn season in Québec is always awaited with great anticipation. Boiling up huge pots filled with dozens of cobs of corn, slathering them with aromatic butters and accompanying them with grilled vegetable salads is a great tradition that takes advantage of the last beautiful days of summer. On August 19 and 20, Jean Talon and Atwater markets invite you to celebrate the harvest season with some delicious Québec-grown corn.

    Did you cook too much corn at your latest corn boil? No problem! Why not make a delicious cream of corn soup with the leftovers?


    Harvest Time: Berry Jams
    When berries are overflowing the stands of your favourite merchants, it’s time to transform those strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries into jam. Our enthusiastic producers are sure to have some advice to make your homemade jams with the leftovers? a lip-smacking success.


    Harvest Time: Canned Vegetables
    If abundance perfectly describes the harvest season, you only need a little creativity to imagine the delicious preserves you can make with the thousand and one vegetables in season in the markets. From marinated vegetables to the traditional “ketchups” and sauces of every kind, it’s fun to can vegetables with your family or friends, which you can then eat to your heart’s content all year round.

    Do you still have leftover corn? Why not switch up fruit “ketchup” for corn “ketchup” and you’ve solved your problem.


    Harvest time is also for picnics featuring fresh vegetable dishes or for throwing some meat or fish from one of your public markets on the barbecue, accompanied by delicious grilled veggies. It’s a time for cooking and sharing fresh produce grown locally by your enthusiastic producers.
