Vegan-friendly grocery store & deli
This is a lovely, little grocery and deli that has many vegetarian and vegan options, including sandwiches, salads, and pastas, and packaged goods like vegan faux meats, cheeses, and ice cream. They have a lot of fresh produce and bulk items, including bulk grains, spices, and baking supplies.

La Carotte Joyeuse has a wonderful selection of vegan comestibles and it's very convenient for tourists (it is located just a few blocks from Vieux Quebec along Rue St. Jean). The fridge by the deli has a number of vegan sandwiches, including a tofu panini (made with vegan pesto) and a vegetable pate sandwich. La Carotte Joyseuse has a number of faux meats and vegan cheeses, including Sheese and Follow Your Heart. It also has a number of products that aren't widely available in the US, such as vegetable pates in five different flavors, many flavors of soy custard/pudding (I like the lime-flavored custard) and some Canadian brands of vegan cookies.
I really liked this store, although I would have liked to see more vegan options in the deli case (most veg options looked like they had cheese). I really liked the emphasis on bulk products instead of packaged goods (they even have bulk spices!) and I was pleased to see so many varieties of vegan ice cream, some of which I've never even heard of.
