But it’s possible that Montreal’s other main market, the Atwater Market, south of downtown in St-Henri, is even more festive.

FLICKR PHOTO OF THE WEEK

This week we tip our hats to flickr user camwil2009 for this colorful shot, taken along the Lachine Canal. Running more than 14 kilometers long, from Old Montréal to Lac St. Louis, the canal is a great backdrop for a leisurely bike ride or a scrumptious picnic. Lunch and bicycles can both be found at the Atwater Market. Check out the Lachine Canal Visitor’s Center if you are curious about the history of this unique Montréal landmark. Submit your pictures on our MONTRÉAL BUZZ FLICKR GROUP. —————————————————————————————————————— See our previous FLICKR PHOTO OF THE WEEK.
