A second outstanding fresh food market in Montreal. Lots of beautiful fresh fruit and vegetables attractively arranged and lots of eating places. Lots of meat and cheese stores but I was attracted by the magnificent cake and bread store upstairs I could eat them all. The salads were also very popular. A fantastic asset to a big city.

Atwater Market is not huge. It's a decent size market in an area of Montréal that used to suck. It is now amazing! I have been to the great markets of the world and can attest that although it is small, Atwater is BY FAR where the nicest people are! It's really great to see people welcome you with such... More

One of the highlights of our trip. Biked to the market from Old Montreal and ate lunch along the Saint Laurence River. Blueberries,strawberries, cheeses and pepperoni/everything pizzas were excellent. Large bakery for freshly made loaves of bread. Reasonable prices.

This is most definitely one of the best farmers markets I've ever experienced. The diverse products are all artistically displayed to include a fantastic selection of creatively designed pastries, the best cuts of fresh meat and of course, Fromagerie Atwater high quality cheese offerings can only be described as super impressive. This is a definite must do agenda item whenever... More

Kind of like Jean Talon Market’s little brother. Although smaller, it has a great cheese shop, seafood vendor, a wonderful boulangerie, and a gauntlet of boucheries inside. The goodies in the glass case of the boulangerie (which opens at 7 AM) at the back of the building will make your mouth water. We had breakfast there once. The market is... More

If you're visiting Montreal...do yourself a favor. In the morning, hop on a bixi bike or take an Uber from wherever you're staying to Atwater Market. Grab some fresh artisanal coffee, a baguette or croissant and some cheese from Fromagerie Atwater. This is the experience you're looking for. I promise.

We went to both markets in Montreal and this was the smaller, more well known market. It was small but had a lot of good food. We went to the Chocolats Privilege and they had the most amazing selection of chocolates and macrons. Their coffee milk sorbet was sweet and refreshing for the hot day also the ambiance was nice...

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.
