i smell spring

One of our favourite summer activities is heading to Jean Talon market on Saturday or Sunday mornings. When we decided to head there today, I knew we would have spring fever.

Living in Quebec has many advantages. One of them is called maple taffy.

This is the process of pulling taffy on snow. It's hot maple syrup poured on fresh snow, wrapped up in a popsicle stick.

What's better than a maple lollipop?
Jean Talon Market, one of North America's largest outdoor markets, has a lot to offer. It has tons of fresh vegetables and fruits, but one of the best known spots there is Havres aux Glaces. This place has the best sorbet in Montreal. They take seasonal flavours and make them into delicious sorbets and gelatos. This week's flavours were Maple (with bits of maple taffy) and Burnt Caramel.

They also have their Easter display up. How cute is this?!?!
