Market Chronicles: Stories and Recipes from Montreal's Marché Jean-Talon

We’ll admit it: when it comes to the Jean Talon Market, located a short metro ride from Doctor’s Review’s offices, we’re a little biased. But no matter where you are, you can gain an appreciation for North America’s largest open-air market thanks to Market Chronicles: Stories and Recipes from Montreal’s Marché Jean-Talon, written by Susan Semenak and published by Éditions Cardinal. Semenak takes inspiration from the bustling fruit and vegetable stalls, the artisanal cheeses and grass-fed beef vendors to produce a collection of recipes and stories that highlight fresh, local ingredients and the people who produce and sell them. “It is impossible,” writes Semenak, “to resist the market’s charms.” Who are we to disagree?
