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

We've been to Pike Market in Seattle and were disappointed in all the touristy garbage that is for sale. I was thrilled to see that Atwater Market is still food and flower vendors. We had french pastries for lunch, followed by chocolates and gelato. My mom managed to find the little maple sugar cones that she remembered from childhood.

If you are foodies like us, this is a required stop while in Montreal. Try to avoid buying everything at the first stand, and make sure you leave enough time to peruse, taste some cheese and other delicacies - especially if you are shopping for a picnic or goodies to bring back to your room. The market is quite large... More

Beautiful time to visit a market with flowers everywhere. THe choices and quality of the food is outstanding. We ate lunch there and had some Thai soup which was delicious, and some eclairs (pastries) and I bought Quebec cheeses to take home St- Andre etc. (and yes it made it through in my carry on although it is soft-paste) Quebec...

The market was clean and had many food products on offer fro several different businesses. Prices only a little higher than a supermarket but the quality of the items offered was much higher. Cafés and specialty foods offered too. Easy to reach by metro.

Whatever city we are in, we search out the "markets" with shops, indoor and outdoor stalls. This one did not disappoint. Jean Talon is much larger, but this one is more manageable, and had wonderful butcher, cheese, seafood, vegetables, fruit, flower, bakery shops. We ate a brunch at Premiere Moisson, ham and cheese pannini, almond croissant, coffee, yum.

Of course you can buy great food there too, but make sure you spend some time going through the alleys full of plants and flowers, even if you are visiting and do not plan to do some gardening!

Colourful stands of vegetables, fruits and flowers in the first floor, a very good boutique for exotic flavours in marine salt, tea and others, an excellent but very expensive fresh fish shop, a nice pastries. chocolates and coffee shop and the well-known...

Go here if you are in Montreal. If you are a foodie there are tons of great things to buy and take home with you. We always stock up on duck confit! Have a bite to eat while you are there in one of the shops or pull together a picnic of cheese, bread and wine! Great place to stop!

The place to buy a baguette, cheese, cold cuts, and bottled water before crossing the Lachine Canal to have a picnic on a wonderful Spring/Summer day in Montreal. On your return across the canal, have some ice cream, take pictures of the flower vendors' displays, and buy fresh fruit and maple cream and hard candies to eat back in your... More
