Was looking to kill some time on a business trip and decided to check out Atwater Market. Many reviews suggested there were souvenirs and non-food relayed shops. There are none. The only "souvenir" type item may be a chocolate rabbit but that's about it. Don't get me wrong, the food looked amazing but it was not anything I could/would bring... More

The Atwater Market is classic Montreal. It is best to visit in the late spring through the fall when the stalls overflow the brick & mortar market onto the surrounding black-top area. But even in winter, the market is bustling with shoppers. Real people, not only tourists. You will find fresh produce, 3 cheesemoners, (Atwater Fromagerie, my favorite), a bakery,... More

On our way out of town, we decided to grab breakfast and shop at Atwater market. As an American, it was a great place to blow through our last remaining Canadian dollars. I still dream of the fresh macaroons and the beautiful fresh fruit that was available. Most specialty shops sold hot food on the side. I stopped and enjoyed... More

Went to for a wander around and ended up buying some lovely French bread and the maple sweets they have are a lot cheaper there than anywhere else I've been in Montreal.

The outside market has many farmers stalls which sell both local and imported produce, as well as two cheese stores, a wine store specialising in locally produced spirits and a fish store. Quality is usually very good, although bargains are quite rare.

My husband and I enjoyed visiting this market. Open air, but also covered shops which made it nice when the rain fell. Plants, flowers, meats, pasta, deli, fruits, coffee shops, pies. Vendors were very friendly. Produce was beautiful. I wished I could get more through customs. Our salad and dessert for supper was full of market memories.

A market is always a great place to mingle with the locals, sample the local fare and specialties. Christmas trees and decorations vendors outside the Market added to the festivity. Go early, have breakfast or brunch at the Premiere Moisson Bakery, shop for your cheese platter, terrines and cold meats from the very excellent Fromagerie Hamel..........could easily eat my way...

IF you go to Montreal for a day or two and you love great food, then a stop here is a must. It is so easy to get to as there is an exit off highway 20 coming in either direction which will bring you right to the market. You can also ride to it from Old Montreal to shop... More

Our third visit to Montreal from the UK, and our third visit to Atwater was as much fun as ever. We love all the stalls displaying fresh flowers, vegetables, meats, cheeses and fish. Christmas trees were also available on this visit! We always buy ingredients for a home cooked meal here, and often partake of a croissant and coffee in... More
