One of the best produce markets I have ever visited. Beautiful flowers, lots of fantastic produce. The perfect place to buy food for a picnic to eat by the canal.

everything local and from little quebec farms....the only way to get vegetables and free range meat and not have to truck it here from 1000`s of kilometers away!! I encourage everyone to do all grocery shopping here, it is cheaper or the same price and all money stays in Quebec and Canada, ty atwater market

I love shopping at the Atwater market in Spring Time. The floral vendors offer perennials, annuals and cut flowers to help you welcome the warmer climes. Wander through the aisles and try not to be tempted by the magnificient cheese offerings. And don't forget the pate, too many specialities to list; your palate will dance.

It is a nice experience and you can find high quality food, but not at the lowest price. but you can walk in have a good fresh pasta or fresh bread or just coffee and absorb the atmosphire

We stopped at Atwater market on our way out of Montreal and were pleased with everything about it! We got there around 10:30am on a Monday so it was very quiet. We were able to find a nice bakery/deli to get some crossiants and coffee for breakfast, as well as take a baguette home with us. We also got to... More

The market was a great spot to go. We picked up a few items on the way home and will continue to stop here when we're in Montreal again.

Very nice place. Plenty of very nice food stores. You can buy organic food and some fancy cheeses. Also during your shopping, you can stop by the pizzeria, very good.

Interesting market for visitors, but if you live nearby as I do it is not a great market to shop except for a small number of specialty items and everything is overpriced except for perhaps corn and tomatoes in the summer. Also, if you are a beef lover you cannot find 3A meat at the market butchers. I buy my... More

The Atwater market is the place to go if you want to buy top-quality products. It's one of my favourite addresses in Montréal. My top 4: • La poissonerie - Hard to beat both in terms of fresheness and variety • Fromagerie du marché - They offer a very large selection of cheeses and charcuteries – You’ll be spoilt for...

We went twice it was so great. Next trip to Montreal we will rent an apartment and shop here for most of our meals, we could chose from the multitude of prepared foods and not have to cook too much on vacation and eat amazing. Just too many choices for one trip. Don't spend 2 hours here once, you can't... More
