This is a very nice market if you are looking for produce, meat, etc. There is not a whole lot offered in the way of prepared food but we did eat at one vendor that was VERY good. But beware that most of the prepared food is only available on weekends. We tried to go back on a Monday to... More

Incredible amount of produce stalls, not to mention butchers, bakeries, and fromageries. We enjoyed eating smoked meat sandwiches in the food outdoor food court section, which offered a variety of options from ramen bowls and paella to sandwiches and seafood. Worth walking around even if you don't buy anything.

It looked beautiful with lots of fresh goodies, but the prices of the produce were expensive. The atmosphere within looked very nice to take pictures.

Over our month in Montreal we returned here again and again. Its just got a great feel to it - lots of fruit and vege stalls around the bottom along with the fish market. But up top inside - the patisserie, boulangerie, fromageries, pasta and butchers shops - oh they are truely devine. Whether you go for a breakfast of... More

Disappointed by the visual aspects and offerings at Jean-Talon, we hightailed it to the Atwater market. Set in a similar "terminal", the eye appeal was much greater as were the variety of offerings. From the outdoor produce booths, we wandered indoors to find an array of seafood, meat and cheese purveyors. Additionally, there was a boulangerie and several gourmet markets.... More

Better than the Jean Talon market. A great combination of serious business and tourism. Many good options for lunch, and great shops as well as produce stalls.

Prominent landmark in section of town makes it easy to find. Excellent small food stalls and farmers market. Great quality and diversity of foods, fresh and prepared. If you like that sort of thing, and I do, its a great place to linger, snack and savor the quality of food in Montreal.

While visiting Montreal we visited a few different markets. Atwater was our favorite. It was less crowded than Jean-Talon and had many more placed to sit and enjoy your purchases. Huge selection of cheeses and cured meats, great pizza and canned goods.

On our last day in Montreal (a first-time adventure for both of us), on way out of town we stopped at one of the ten thousand fromageries we'd looked up: Marché Atwater. We almost gave it a miss because we were pretty late getting on the road, and honestly, what could really top our visit to the sloths and penguins... More
