Located in Rougemont, in the heart of the Montérégie, Le Potager Mont-Rouge Halte Gourmande is an ideal place to enjoy the pleasures of the terroir. You can find a multitude of products or already picked from the fields, as well as several homemade products in their country shop. This agrotourism site was acquired from the family business Le Potager Mont-Rouge in 2016. From there was born the idea that it would be the succession of the market gardening company that develops and owns their own agrotourism niche. Consequently, this acquisition made it possible to concretize the expertise in the field and in customer service of the family business for the benefit of customers. All in all, Le Potager Mont-Rouge Halte Gourmande met their needs.
