Sher­brooke Marché steps back in time

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Agourmet and his­tor­i­cal event all in one, the L’his­toire fait son marché event in­vites ev­ery­one to ex­pe­ri­ence the friendly at­mo­sphere of a Sher­brooke pub­lic mar­ket from 1900. On Au­gust 20th and the 21st, the So­ci­ete d’his­toire de Sher­brooke, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Cor­po­ra­tion du marché de la Gare and Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke, in­vite the Sher­brooke pop­u­la­tion to jump back to 1900 to do their shop­ping in a pub­lic mar­ket from yes­ter­year.

Four­teen mer­chants will have prod­ucts with prices from 1900, or at least at a re­duced price. Be­sides good prices, there will be an­i­ma­tors in cos­tumes, sto­ry­telling, old pho­to­graphs, dy­namic work­shops by the Car­a­vane Cro­quar­ium team and a con­test: guess the value of a filled bas­ket val­ued to­day at $75, ac­cord­ing to 1900 prices. There will be fun and lots to dis­cover for the whole fam­ily!

The old-fash­ioned pub­lic mar­ket, L’his­toire fait son marché, takes place at the Marché de la Gare de Sher­brooke, Au­gust 20th and 21st, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
