Market Share


When I first pitched Market Share to Cult MTL in August 2012, my goal was to seek out the unusual foods that are available to us in Montreal and then figure out what the hell to do with them.

When Cult MTL decided to focus their energies on folks who do the bulk of their eating at restaurants, I realized that Market Share would have to find a new home.
