The Atwater Market (en français, “Marché Atwater”) is a delightful and spacious member of Montreal’s network of five city markets. If you’ve been to Pike’s Place Market in Seattle, Atwater is smaller but quite complete. If you’ve been to City Market in Indianapolis, Atwater is much larger and more complete. Living a few blocks from Atwater Market, as we did... More

We so enjoyed our visit to the Atwater Market. There was so much fresh fruit and veggies, tons of plants (if only we could bring them back into the states) and lots of fresh pastries and chocolates. There are several groceries with unique Canadian products. There are also numerous butchers and cheese shops inside. If we had a kitchen with... More

From Premier Moisson at one end, with their excellent breads and pastries (omg) through the various butchers and deli counters on the inside, emerging at one end where all the lunch booths are selling exotic foods, the fromagerie, the fish monger, the chocolate store, surrounded by flowers and produce...it's a riot for the senses. We always go on our way... More

We went to the market before we left Montreal. The flower and plant vendors outside are a sight to see and very friendly. People cooking fresh mushroom dishes to purchase and a lovely bakery inside with the most delicious sandwiches and baked good to buy. We purchased food for the road to have a picnic. What a lovely treat. Parking... More

I am always amazed at the 'over the top' feedback every visitor gives me after visiting this yearround farmer's market. Local fresh fruits and vegetables make it colorful every day. The fresh baked bread and pastries are heavenly but my favorite is sampling the 5 year + cheddar cheeses from one of the delivhtful "fromagerie" shops. And the best thing... More

With a free morning on our last day we walked down to the bustling Atwater Market. This is a Montreal Institution and the quality of the produce is second to none. There is a central upper gallery, stalls at ground level plus an impressive selection of eating outlets of all types. The fruit and vegetables are very well presented, the... More

During our trip my wife and I visited both of the larger open markets. Atwater was crowed and seemed to have let a tour bus off not long after we got there. Satay brothers have a booth here and the food is good but a bit pricey. There are a lot less prepared food options compared to Jean Talon. All... More

Inside the main building, there are speacialty shops with hard to find, gourmet items as well as butchers, bakeries, tea shops etc. It'a real fun place... More

We arrived at the market a little after "prime time." But the produce was still fresh, colorful and varied. There was an amazing meat and cheese selection - if we'd been staying in Montreal longer, I would've wanted to buy some! We did enjoy pastries from Premiere Moisson Atwater and macarons from Chocolats Privilege. If you've got several days in... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighborhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
