Our next stop was the Jean Talon Market, North America's largest outdoor Market

My favorite part of the market was the abundance of free food samples, especially the fresh and delicious nectarines

Little Italy is known for their wrought iron winding staircases

After all of that walking we were definitely hungry, and since we were in Little Italy we were able to stumble upon this Trattoria

image

Lisa opted for the more reasonable salad and pizza while I had the Monstrous portion of lasagna. And I finished it

image

And after that huge meal we naturally had to walk off all of those calories. We strolled along Rue Saint-Hubert comma one of Montreal's Maine commercial arteries with over 400 boutiques. On this afternoon it was closed to all traffic
