Pumpkins aplenty and gourds galore! The Grand Marché has a bounty of farm produce on display and on sale.

As Quebec City’s Grand Marché marks its second fall season, it has a second head marchand. Jean-Paul Desjardins is the new interim general director of the market after the recent departure of Daniel Tremblay, the head of the Coopérative des horticulteurs de Québec (CHQ), which had spearheaded the move of the market from the Old Port to the ExpoCité site in 2019.
