This was my first stop on my first morning in Montreal. There's produce shops, meat shops, cheese shops, a chocolatier, and a bakery. The baguette I got was delicious (I wanted like ten but my stomach can only contain so much), and I got some really good cheese and beer to take home. (I couldn't take produce or meat back... More

this market is very nice, but if you know the Jean Talon market you will see a big difference. Special in the price. The Atwater market is overpriced. I have to say that in spring this is the best market to buy flowers and herbs, but for fruits and veggies, special organic, the better place is the Jean Talon Market.... More

Friendly vendors. Amazing eats. Pastries to die for. A good afternoon out. Easy to access using public transport.

We had a wonderful visit to the Atwater. All the stall signs are in French. You can buy beautiful cheeses, artisan breads and the freshest meats...including horse meat. We had breakfast which included fabulous coffee and croissants. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the small cafe but it was very busy with locals. Situated at the opposite end from...

They have gorgeous produce, flowers, and sweet treats. One end inside is occupied by a bakery that has sandwiches, fresh baked breads, and pastries. There are butchers, cheese stands, and a place that sells warm nuts. There a quaint pizzaria that offered all sorts of pizza, fresh pasta, and paninis.

The artisans, butchers and bakers display their produce or products with a flare not found elsewhere including Jean Talon Market. Try some lobster sliders or baked goods and chocolate that is totally divine. We visited 2 weeks ago and the pumpkins and produce were plentiful. Go for a walk around and sample some of the local fare.

Very easy to get to on the subway... The market is in a cozy area of Montreal close to the Lachine canal - a must-see if you are a foodie! We visited in the middle of the summer (heat wave) and greatly appreciated the cool indoor area. I literally could not take my eyes off all sorts of beautiful meats... More

If you only have time to visit 1 market in Montreal, go to Jean Talon. It is much bigger scale and have much more food options. There are fruits, veggies and meat for sale in addition to stalls for food. It was very easy to get to. We took the subway (orange or green line) to the Lionel Groulx stop... More

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.
