About us

La place des producteurs

Almost 100 years of history to better promote our Quebec fruit and vegetable
producers and ensure the link with their customers

La Place des producteurs is the implementation of an optimal framework to ensure the representation and marketing of the fruits and vegetables of our Quebec farmers. First created on what is now the Place Jacques-Cartier in Old Montreal, then moved to the Marché Central site, the PDP occupies the premises of a refrigerated warehouse at the cutting edge of technology according to agrifood standards. More than just a place of storage and marketing, the PDP is a crossroads of meetings, exchanges and discoveries between producers and customers.
