Autumn Things : Top 4 Foodie Faves

With the start of fall comes the desire to indulge in some of Montreal's most comforting foods. If you're  a huge foodie like me, and are living in or visiting the Montreal area, then you'll definitely want to check out these four YUM worthy spots!

1. One of my favourite things to do in the fall is to walk through different markets in the city. The Jean Talon Market and the Atwater Market are two in particular that I really enjoy. With the pumpkins out, and the fruits extra ripe, you have access to the absolute best local produce that Montreal has to offer. 

2. The beautiful Mount-Royal gets some serious points for being one of the most spectacular places to visit in the fall months. In fact, watching the leaves turn from green to red is among the best (and most relaxing) things you could possibly do in Montreal. Grab some friends and a few fresh bagels at Fairmount (only the best bagel shop in MTL!) and spend the afternoon walking through the gorgeous Mount-Royal park... there's no doubt you'll feel like you're in one of Monet's paintings! 

3. Go apple picking at Quinn's Farm! Anyone and everyone from the West Island of Montreal has, at some point in their lives, been apple picking at Quinn's. From the wagon ride around the farm, to picking your very own apples off the different kinds of trees - apple picking is an experience that can't be missed! Not to mention, they have an unreal selection of home baked apple pies and apple juice.

4. Grab a cup of hot chocolate and take a nice long walk in the Old Port. There's nothing better than bundling up in an ultra cozy sweater and a cashmere scarf and hitting the boardwalk. While you're at it, head on over to Queues de Castor and pick up a couple of Montreal's notoriously famous hot pastries.
