Very small - maybe a few dozen vendors with tents. About half of the vendors sell prepared foods, the rest sell produce, eggs, maple syrup, and crafts. Everyone is very pleasant, but more vendors are needed. The location is 6-8 blocks from the Hilton Hotel.

Lots of variety and character. You can visit the Queen Square also during the rest of the week though. It is raised from the street level and there is a Champlain statue in the middle of it.
