Buying local is more important than ever this year. We make it easy to feast on the bounty of this province by selling Aliments du Québec certified products. They're the best way to savour the knowledge and creativity of local producers, and the certification means you know you're getting incredibly fresh and high-quality products. That's why our shelves are stocked full of them! Check out just a few of the ingenious products we've fallen in love with!

Quebec Mergeuz

This merguez-style lamb sausage from Maison du Gibier, with its juicy meat, fragrant spices and kick of heat, is the perfect blend of fresh local products and Mediterranean flavours. It would go great in a couscous or tajine, or even on its own as a fun spin on hot dogs. This delicious and easy to cook sausage is also a perfect breakfast food to pair with eggs.

Cruise the Mediterranean with our prepared foods

Visit the prepared foods department for the full Mediterranean dining experience! Couscous salad, tabbouleh, hummus, spanakopita, kebabs, grilled meat and a wide variety of Greek, Lebanese and Moroccan specialties are all made in store so that we can give you simple and delicious lunches and dinners that will whisk you away to the Mediterranean. You won't be able to resist these takeaway meals made with unbelievably fresh, high-quality Quebec ingredients!

Closing the "Loop" with each sip

Get some sunshine into your day with Loop juices and beers! Clementine, orange and strawberry juice, lime and cilantro sour beer, or pineapple, green pepper, lime and turmeric juice... We just love the original combinations that this homegrown business comes up with! Plus, Loop products are made from the imperfect fruits and vegetables discarded by big food industry corporations, meaning every can contributes to the circular economy and helps reduce food waste. Cracking open a cold one at the end of the day has never been more satisfying!

Visit the world of high-quality Mediterranean dairys

Although cow's milk is most common here in Quebec, goat's milk and sheep's milk are more popular in Mediterranean cuisines. Riviera goat's milk will lend its distinctively authentic flavour to your creamy dressings, soups and desserts. Rich and creamy Greek yogurt is perfect for whipping up traditional Mediterranean dishes, like labneh, tzatziki or creamy meat marinades. Of course, it's also great served on its own with roasted nuts and a drizzle of honey.

Salmon tartar

When you want something both fresh and light, it's hard to do better than a tasty salmon tartar. If you don't know how to make it yourself, just visit our frozen goods aisle and pick up a Mediterranean Blue Tide Salmon Tartar. Prepare your taste buds for an unforgettable getaway to the Greek coast! Prepared in Quebec with tender morsels of Atlantic salmon, bell peppers, Jalapeno, dill and mustard caviar and a hint of lemon juice, you'll feel like you're lounging on a patio in Santorini with every bite!
