Roaming through the Market 🥕

For all the oyster lovers out there, you’ve hit the jackpot! Jean-Talon Market is your place to be🌊.

These bad boys starts from $2.50 per unit if shuck on site. For those who knows how, you can also do it at home for an even lower price.


Aqua Mare carries the best sellers of La Boîte aux Huîtres since it specializes in fish and other seafood. In comparison, if you are looking for a more extensive selection, right a cross you can find La Boîte aux Huîtres (check their opening hours just to be sure) who has oyster specials!

Though I do not have much expertise in the flavors of oysters, my criterium for a good oyster equates to the absence of fishiness.

The shucker suggested “French kiss” and “Irish Point” after hearing my requests. They were really pleasant and adding the fresh horseradish definitely added a lot of flavor too; however, the size was on the small side and it was still a bit too salty for my liking. To be the most honest, I couldn’t really tell the difference between the two types of oysters but I assume that it is because of my inexperience and lack of knowledge.
