Go drink in the atmosphere of the market especially in the summer and autumn. There are always some people playing music or activities organised by the great people working for MDM (Marchés de Montréal)

We make a point of going to the Atwater Market whenever we are in Montreal, where we especially enjoy choosing spices, baked goods, and tortieres.

High quality locally and internationally sourced foods. But with an emphasis on Quebecois products. As an example, we sampled a few provincially made cheeses from the monger on the upper level of market. Delicious! To be considered though is the tight spacing of interior quarters. So expect crowding during busy hours. Nonetheless, every food group is accounted for right down... More

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

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...

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.
