Christie, my personal Montreal tour guide, took me to Bonsecours Market. She was THE BEST! Christie lived in Montreal for several years and invited me to see the city with her and her boyfriend Julien! They were such great hosts and definitely knew how to find their way around this city. However, Montreal has a great Metro system so if you go without the assistance of "locals" you will be just fine. It is easy to navigate!
I was fascinated by the architecture and unique collection of shops at Bonsecurs Market. It is a two story public market located in the Old Port area of Montreal which opened in 1949 and was named for the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel just next door. The Montreal City Hall was located here in the 1800’s. You can get a great view of the market from the ice skating rink in Old Port.
I found some very interesting clothing that reminded me of the ones that I buy locally in North Carolina designed by my friend Devon (Jelbel Designs). CUTE!
After shopping we were apparently in the mood for Yoga so we attempted some poses on a snow mound. Well..... Chrisite actually did the poses...I made an attempt. I think I get an "A" for effort. :)
