After their first-ever session at the end of July, the open-air neighbourhood market of SudBest is returning on August 28 and 29 to serve up another huge open-air taste of food, drink, and culture from the neighbourhoods found throughout the city's southwestern boroughs, whether it's Verdun, Saint-Henri, Pointe-Saint-Charles, or beyond.

There's going to be just as—if not more—things on offer, as well as live music happening throughout the weekend's festivities. Setting up alongside the Lachine Canal behind the Arsenal contemporary art center, "Sudbest is a place of culinary and artisanal discoveries, but also the opportunity for you and your neighbours to reclaim your borough," the non-profit organizers from Les Survenants write on the event's website.

And how: Cocktails and beers from local bars like Lord William Pub and Cirka distilleries, beers from Microbrasserie 4 Origines, coldbrew from Pavillon Snack Bar, and others join the line-up for beverages. Nine restaurants are serving up food along with two food trucks, and more than 20 vendors will be selling all kinds of art, merch, and other trinkets. The full list for this upcoming weekend is right here!
