I enjoy market shopping. Atwater has a variety of green grocers, butcher shops, fruit, cheese, baked goods all under one roof.

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

After spending two nights in Montreal, we were on our way to travel down the highway in Vermont to see the fall leaves. My brother who lives in Vermont recomended that we stop at the Atwater Market to get a picnic lunch for our days travel. He has never given me better advice. Beautiful cheeses, breads and chocolates. I purchased... More

If you enjoy walking around a big, open market and sampling unpasteurized cheeses, beautiful macarons, fresh baguettes and artisan charcuterie (and honestly, if you don't, there's something wrong with you), a visit to Atwater Market is a crucial part of any trip to Montreal.

As an ex Montrealer it was great to visit the Atwater Market again! One of our favorite shops was the Cheese place that carries over 800 different cheeses! We had one of the best cannola EVER!!!

When in Montreal and want to visit a true food market head to Jean Talon. Atwater is a bit too prepackaged. Jean Talon market I would classify as one of the best food markets in the world.

Although I agree that the produce and cheese quality and selection was pretty great, but it was smaller than I expected (coming from someone who's familiar with Philadelphia's Italian Market (Open markets), maybe it was because it was November... the prices at the market definitely match the posh area ($$), although can't find many places in US where you can...
