OUR LOCAL PRODUCERS

Each month, we feature one of our suppliers, a local producer with whom we are proud and happy to work with.

FROMAGERIE DU PRESBYTÈRE

CHEESE IN THE VILLAGE

Jean Morin is from the fourth generation of dairy farmers at Louis d’Or farm, in the village of Sainte-Élizabeth-de-Warwick. In 2009, he fulfilled a dream by founding the Fromagerie du Presbytère, just opposite his farm. When he was a kid, his mother would send him with cakes to the priest who lived where he and his four children now make their delicious cheeses, which wins awards every year in Quebec and across Canada.
CHOCOLAT MONTRÉAL

CUSTOM CHOCOLATE

Chocolat Montréal offers a classic range of artisanal chocolates, distributed online and through certain retail outlets. Thanks to innovative technologies in the service of artisanal know-how, Florence Paquin-Mallette and Ludovic Fresse, master chocolatier, are making the aficionados and the local gastronomy scene very happy.
LES MARCHANDS DUFRAIS

FOREST TO TABLE

For Les Marchands DuFrais, only that which is exquisite deserves to be picked, and by the best pickers! As distributors of fresh mushrooms in season, and dehydrated or frozen throughout the year, they also offer products derived from truffles and berries, to the delight of chefs and our taste buds!
FAIRMOUNT BAGEL

THE BEST BAGEL IN THE WORLD IS 100 YEARS OLD!

Fairmount Bagel will celebrate, in the next year, its 100th anniversary! Founder Isadore Shlafman had to flee Kiev in 1919, and as fate would have it, he arrived in Montreal and founded North America’s first bagel bakery. After initially operating in the alley behind Schwartz’s, on the Main, he moved his bakery to Fairmount Street, where it still stands. The bagel recipe and method have remained unchanged to this day.
CIRKA DISTILLERIES

FROM THE GRAIN TO THE BOTTLE, EVERY DETAIL COUNTS!

Cirka Distilleries has a unique approach. They produce their spirits on their premises, from grain to bottle: cooking the grains (GMO-free, locally produced), fermenting, distilling and bottling. They opened their doors in 2015, and the distribution network for their vodka and gins has already grown considerably to include Nova Scotia, Alberta and Ontario.
BIRRI ET FRÈRES

AT THE HEART OF JEAN-TALON MARKET FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS!

Over the years, Lino and Bruno Birri, market gardeners and nursery owners, have become leading figures at the Jean-Talon Market. Birri et Frères offers its diverse clientele – including around a hundred restaurants – local products harvested daily, along with greenhouse products in the winter. They also sell plants and seeds for gardening.
1769 DISTILLERY

SPIRITS HANDCRAFTED IN MONTRÉAL

1769 Distillery has produced spirits in small batches since 2014. Madison Park gin and MVodka are available in various versions, and they will launch the first three-year-old Canadian whisky made in Montreal in mid-June 2018 (for Father’s Day).
This microdistillery is also at the origin of our famous Oak Barrel-Aged Maple Old-Fashioned, a unique elixir that sprang from a collaboration between their master distiller Andrew Mikus and Maximilliano Vallée Valletta, head bartender and general manager at Les Enfants Terribles.
HECTOR LARIVÉE INC

O’CITRUS

CITRUS FRUIT VANGUARD

The Vaillancourt family’s fruit and vegetable farm was founded way back in 1823! As a child of the seventh generation of one of Quebec’s oldest farming families, Vyckie Vaillancourt has added a new branch to the family business by creating O’Citrus, which is dedicated to exotic citrus fruits. Yuzu, kumquat, and Buddha’s hands are now produced just north of Montreal, on the island of Laval!
LA CANARDIÈRE
