It looked beautiful with lots of fresh goodies, but the prices of the produce were expensive. The atmosphere within looked very nice to take pictures.

Over our month in Montreal we returned here again and again. Its just got a great feel to it - lots of fruit and vege stalls around the bottom along with the fish market. But up top inside - the patisserie, boulangerie, fromageries, pasta and butchers shops - oh they are truely devine. Whether you go for a breakfast of... More

Disappointed by the visual aspects and offerings at Jean-Talon, we hightailed it to the Atwater market. Set in a similar "terminal", the eye appeal was much greater as were the variety of offerings. From the outdoor produce booths, we wandered indoors to find an array of seafood, meat and cheese purveyors. Additionally, there was a boulangerie and several gourmet markets.... More

Better than the Jean Talon market. A great combination of serious business and tourism. Many good options for lunch, and great shops as well as produce stalls.

Prominent landmark in section of town makes it easy to find. Excellent small food stalls and farmers market. Great quality and diversity of foods, fresh and prepared. If you like that sort of thing, and I do, its a great place to linger, snack and savor the quality of food in Montreal.

While visiting Montreal we visited a few different markets. Atwater was our favorite. It was less crowded than Jean-Talon and had many more placed to sit and enjoy your purchases. Huge selection of cheeses and cured meats, great pizza and canned goods.

On our last day in Montreal (a first-time adventure for both of us), on way out of town we stopped at one of the ten thousand fromageries we'd looked up: Marché Atwater. We almost gave it a miss because we were pretty late getting on the road, and honestly, what could really top our visit to the sloths and penguins... More

We went to this market on a rainy day. They have nice fresh fruit, vegetables and inside great meat. I am used to Dutch prices, so for me most things where pretty expensive. The quality is great though. If you are at this market, be sure to get some sateh at Satay brothers (outside on the corner.)

Atwater is the smaller of the two indoor/outdoor markets but is great in its own right. Lots of options and the fruit we bought sparkled. My wife said her latte was very good and my mini muffin at one of the bakeries was outstanding. There are inexpensive small restos about and FREE PARKING. There are nearby grocery stores and pharmacies... More
