The moule à sucre is one of Catherine’s favourites!

Le Moule à Sucre- Intérieur

One of my favourite activities is agri-tourism. More than anything, I like learning how our regional products are made. I could find this kind of experience at the Moule à Sucre.

This old barn, converted into a boutique, is located not far from St-Jean-Port-Joli and St-Roch-des-Aulnaies. On one side, you’ll find the artists’ workshop. Here you’ll find jewellery, clothing and all kinds of objects such as cushions, paintings and blown glass.

On the other side of the barn, you’ll find compotes, mousses de foie gras, marinades as well as jams and jellies. You’ll also find good old-fashioned candies. For those that want to take a culinary voyage, head over to the imports section, where you’ll find a variety of original items. You’ll discover Japan, India and Italy. While visiting the boutique, enjoy a taste of some regional products.

Behind the building, you’ll find a very unusual garden. Inside, you’ll find some beautiful, but also very useful, plants. Therapeutic, culinary, cosmetic and decorative are only a few of the examples of the usefulness of these plants.

For some original small gifts that are 100% Québécois (or almost), make a stop at the Moule à Sucre.
