What is the Marché de l’Outaouais?
The Marché de l’Outaouais is a cooperative that serves as direct link between producer and artisan members of the Outaouais and Eastern Ontario, and consumers in the region. It’s an online public market and a food shop, open all year round!
The raison d’être of the Marché de l’Outaouais?
The Marché de l’Outaouais was created more than nine years ago because regional products were not readily available in grocery stores and supermarkets in the region. We had to go farm to farm to get local products. With the Marché de l’Outaouais, people can now order online and pick up their order at a central location in Gatineau. Most local grocery stores and supermarkets still do not offer our farm products on their shelves. The Marché de l’Outaouais is therefore always essential to pair up producers, artisans and consumers. It also encourages producers and stimulates local buying.
How to become a member and how much does it cost?
On the homepage of the Marché de l’Outaouais website, click on “Become a member” at the top right and fill out the form to create an account. The annual registration fee of $25 will be added to your first order.
What are the advantages of being a member of Marché de l’Outaouais?
The food shop is accessible to members and non-members. However, only members can order “à la carte” online and thus have access to a wider variety of products. By ordering online, you benefit from prices 5% lower than in the food shop. Also, like any cooperative, members have the right to vote at the annual general meeting.
How to order?
First, log into your account on the homepage at the top right. Choose the day you want to pick up your order. NOTE: THE CLOSING DATE OF THE ORDERING PERIOD. If you place your order after closing date and hour displayed, it will not be prepared for the current week, but for the following one! Then browse by products or producers and add the selected products to your basket. Be aware that the products added to the basket are saved automatically and will be delivered to the Marché de l’Outaouais for you! Therefore, if you want to cancel ordered products or your entire order, be sure to empty your cart or set the quantities to zero BEFORE the closing time of the ordering period.
How to recover your order?
Your order must be picked up at the counter of the Marché de l’Outaouais located at 71 Eddy Street in Gatineau.
Hours and days of picking:
Thursday: noon to 8 pm
Friday: 10 am to 6 pm
A volunteer will give you your order and check it with you using the list of your purchases displayed in your account. Note that if there is significant traffic at the counter, accessing your shopping list on your phone or tablet may speed up the service. You can make purchases in the store to complete your order and then go to the cashier to make your payment by debit card or cash.
