My sister and I took a recent road trip to Montreal and we would spend a wonderful week there. Along with visiting our family members who live there, we would get a chance to explore the city and put or cameras to good use.
One of the first places we would visit after arriving in the city was the Jean – Talon Market, or a they say in french; Marche Jean – Talon.
When we got close to the area, we saw many people on bicycles riding to the market. We also saw people walking and carrying there shopping bags in hand to the market, and people walking away from the market with filled bags. The market is pretty big. If you get there and decide you want to use cash, there is a bank machine. There is underground parking and also washrooms on the premises.
The vegetables are beautifully displayed enticing the shopper to try as many as possible, even if they are not on your shopping list.
This garlic is grown right there in Quebec and it actually smelled like garlic. So often now, so much seem to be going on with our foods that they may even look or smell differently, but not so with this garlic.
There was so much to see at the market. So many fruits and vegetables to choose from.
The prices were also quite reasonable—an example of this was when I was able to purchase a healthy bunch of celery for $2.00 as oppose to the $5 I’ve been paying in Ontario.
On the outside of the market you can find a place to sit at one of the cafes. You will also find a place to park your bicycles and there are musicians in the streets to keep the passersby entertained.
If you live in Montreal I’m sure you know about the Jean Talon Market, and if you are visiting the city it’s a place you may want to check out.
I believe that when we put healthy food into our bodies we will benefit in many positive ways. Healthy eating will tend to give us more physical energy, and also stimulate our minds in a more positive way. When goodness goes into our bodies, goodness is also more likely to come out. On the other hand when our bodies are filled with unhealthy foods, lost of energy and unhealthy thoughts will most likely be our gain.
[ Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians+4:8 NKJV
