Foodie events happening in Montreal this weekend

La Fete Eco-Bio Paysanne

For the sixth year in a row, visit the Fête Éco-Bio Paysanne, Canada’s largest FREE organic-environmental fair. For the occasion, La TOHU’s public square is transformed into a festive open-air market with close to one hundred exhibitors.

The two major activities happening side by side are the organic food market and booths showing how we can all live more sustainably. You’ll find a wealth of details on alternatives and the latest green technologies, and you can stock up on tasty, local pesticide-free produce at the same time! Also featured: workshops, tastings, stage shows, face-painting, strolling players, an eco-friendly chalet and a children’s farm.

25,000 people came out in 2008. Come join the party in 2009!
