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...

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Atwater Market. The outside displays of fruit and vegetables were lovely. Also very interesting were the butchers and cheese providors inside. The highlight for a sweet tooth like me however was the bakery/patisserie at the Lachine Canal end of the market. You could have left me there for a few weeks and carried me... More

Full of delicious produce to see, touch and smell even on a blustery cold morning in October. A combination of shop like stalls inside and market stalls outside. The market also has free wifi which we found helpful in planning the next step of our discovery of Montreal.

What a suprise find! A food store selling authentic tasting Singaporean Laksa. I finally found a place that serves Laksa as good as the hewker store in Singapore!

We made our way to the Atwater Market by car, and to our relief there are parking lots just across the street, so no hassle finding parking. The market will instantly have you watching food channels to inspire you to buy the fresh produce, the pastries, meats and cheese so deliciously displayed. The market is a two story layout, and...

Came here in the afternoon after spending a few hours at Jean Talon. It is a nice market. Seemed like it had more greenhouse vendors. There is still a lot of choices for fresh meat, produce and cheese. Just on a smaller scale. There's a few places you can sit and eat here too. And that great juice/smoothie stand is... More
