October in Montreal ... it's a month of frights and foliage
, and Montreal's farmer's markets
are exploding with gorgeous produce as the city braces itself for colder months with a non-stop roster of festivals, events, and fall-themed fun.

Unless the city is blessed with a rare Indian summer extending beyond September, Montreal is in full fall mode come October. Crisp, cool but fairly comfortable, it's not uncommon to experience a snowfall at this time. But chances are it's a light one where flakes don't stay put on the ground for more than a few minutes or hours, melting away by day's end.
