Wow for the eyes and the mouth

What a very big market you can find so many things from cedar to delicate cheese. Looking at the colour of all fruits and vegetables is a very nice sensation.

Very nice market with lots to try. If you're looking to sample a few things and keep moving, I'd say do this at the beginning of your day. If you want to try things to take back fir cooking, then I would recommend visiting in the middle of the day, as there are so many wonderful things to buy and... More

We went to this market walking from our apartment which was around 15minutes walking. Huge collection of indoor and outdoor plants/flowers. Fresh fruits and vegetables are on sale. You can buy fresh homemade chocolates and breads. There is also huge section of poultry.

We went to two markets on our trip and liked Atwater the best. It is nicely organized and had some good food available for lunch. We ate some amazing African slow cooked meals with great flavors. Also, the fresh bread and croissants we bought were yummy.

We came here because we were told to see it just for the culture and food. It was great to see everything but since we already ate lunch at a separate location I was bummed. Although for the locals the market offered so many excellent fruits and meats and cheeses. I'd say plan to come here and eat lunch.

We rented Bixi bikes and rode along the canal to visit Atwater Market. Inside were numerous vendors selling meats, cheeses, specialty foods, breads, pastries and chocolate. Outside were booths brimming with colorful local fruits, vegetables, and flowers. We enjoyed coffee and croissants, and bought some Manchego and pate (and chocolate-covered everything, from ginger to cherries) to eat later. A great... More

Went on Sunday morning before the crowds and it was incredible! Went with my father who lives in San Francisco, travels around the world regularly, and absolutely loves farmer's markets - he said it was by far the best he's ever seen. Go on the first day of your trip so you can stock up on fruit to keep at... More

There is so much wonderful fruits, pastries, and vegetables for sale here. You'll see stall after stall of fresh produce, so come here hungry and make a picnic of it. There's a creperie, smoothie stand, and other stalls with unique foods for sale. At one corner of the market is a fishmonger with some of the freshest seafood in the... More

Just a pleasure walking through this market with flowers, plants, patisseries, cheese shoppes, chocolatiers, charcuterie,etc. so frustrating that we are traveling and can't take some of this home. All the beautiful fruits and vegetables! Definitely worth the trip. Bought a sandwich, which they grilled for us,got a nice fresh salad and 2 small bottles of wine and sat on the... More

Great market for both food, plants and lunch. The selections and presentation are mouth watering, the ambiance is busy and friendly. Great lunch spot or pic mic take out when riding your bicycle along the canal. Nearby is trendy Rue Notre Dame with hip restaurants such as Joe Beef and Liverpool House or the new Montrealait Milk bar

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.
