Following is the list of participating merchants:

The public market will host a rotating music line-up featuring Javis Mendez (Latin), Whip Cream (Jazz and Pop Rock), plus Virginie Cummins & Lounge Attitude (World).

About Place Ville Marie
An architectural jewel designed by I.M. Pei (creator of the famous pyramid at the Louvre) and Henry N. Cobb, the Place Ville Marie complex stands out with its famous cruciform tower, the highest of its type in Canada at 188 metres (617 feet). Still very contemporary, Place Ville Marie has become, as suggested by the visionary spirits who conceived it in 1962, a "city within a city" and forms the heart of Montréal's business centre. The Galerie Place Ville Marie still moves to the beat of the major trends while creating a warm, dynamic space. Nearly 75 renowned restaurants and shops can be found there.
