Have you ever been to heaven? Let me answer that for you – if you have never been to Marché Jean-Talon in Montréal, then no, you have not. Screw Disneyland, this is the happiest place on earth.
Have I told you yet about those couple of years I lived in Montréal? It’s the usual story you see, fall in love with some debonnaire Frenchman (he was Lebanese, actually, which only made the accent sexier) and run away to another country. I know, it was just Canada, but it was romantic while my visa lasted. When it ran out and I could not get a new one, I had to leave quickly, but the time I spent there changed my life completely, and this market changed the way this foodie looks at food forever.
