Coopérative des Horticulteurs de Québec was mandated by the City of Quebec to develop and manage the public market in Pavillon du Commerce on the Expo-Cité site. A crossroads for the agri-food industry and an important hub for consumers, Grand Marché is a unique and lively public place and a destination of choice thanks to its wide variety of merchants, artisans and producers; its spaces dedicated to food education; its focus on promoting young farmers; and the presence of an incubator for new businesses.

The project was divided into various components: construction work to transform the trade pavilion into a public market (carried out by the City of Quebec) and interior design work for the various tenants (shops and permanent kiosks, small seasonal kiosks, kitchens and dining areas, etc.) carried out under the supervision of the site manager, the Coopérative des Horticulteurs de Québec.
