Neighborhood arts and crafts markets are great places to find unique products made by people who choose to create outside the mainstream box.  A place to get that special piece that everybody wants but no one knows where to precisely find…

Montreal’s new outdoor market La Récré is no exception.  This new initiative, set in a funky Mile-End schoolyard (« Récré » literally means « Recess » in French), takes place every Saturday and showcases local creators – and vintage collectors – of all kinds (clothes, jewelry, homewear, furniture, food and bath products, etc). It’s a great opportunity for city travellers to actually speak with the local artisans that give the city it original flavour.  Take your time, have a bite, indulge in some slow shopping while meeting unique people.
