Marché Bonsecours (325 de la Commune), Sept. 7–30, 10 a.m.–10 p.m. daily,  $12, $8 for students under 25, children under 12 free.

Don’t miss a double-billing of improv comedy tonight, starting with Smackdown Improv, a weekly improv battle at 8 p.m. ($8), followed by an improv story telling set by Armando at 10 p.m. ($5). Montreal Improv Theatre (3713 St-Laurent), 2nd floor
