My wife lives in little Italy just near this market. I love to walk here in the morning for an almond croissant and we also come to buy fresh produce or to share a yummy fried calamari (so fresh!). There is also a small store selling all things local to Quebec (hard cider, wines, cheese, jams, meats, etc.) And then... More

We were here on a Saturday morning and it definitely did not disappoint! It was crowded with lots of people on their morning off, but definitely lots to see. Beautiful produce displays. Lots of cheese counters offering tastes of their wares (my friend tried a raw goat cheese that she said "tasted like I licked a goat.") as well as... More

Words cannot express how much fun it is to explore the market. We visit here every trip to Montreal. It's the best place to eat lunch. Easy to find crepes, Italian treats. Spend as much or as little as you want. The selection is incredible. Explore the "little Italy" neighborhood close to the market too, and don't miss the Alati-Caserta... More

Being from France, I really enjoy a good food market. Living in England, I don't get to see so many nice ones any more. When we visited Montreal last september, I was told to have a look at Jean Talon market and really am not disappointed. I just dream of having the same market next door to my house. The... More

When visiting Montreal you have to stop by the Jean Talon Market to see what they have to offer. My friend showed me so many different spots and I tried all the samples I could without being overwhelmed. I was like a kid in a candy store, the organic apple juice I purchased there was so good.

Lots of fresh food and produce, not many places which had hot food for you to enjoy on the spot. This would have been a great place to shop for fruit and veg (they looked fantastic!) had we not been staying in a hotel. The cheese stalls were amazing! Prices were great and we bought some maple syrup, nuts and... More

A trip to Montreal is never complete without a stop at this market. It's a sheer delight to see all the wonderful offerings. Fruits, vegetables, flowers, pastries: all are displayed beautifully and samples abound. We love the middle eastern pastries that are fresh and delectable. Weekends are best but this trip we saw the market midweek. Although not as brimming... More

I love coming to Marché Jean Talon... Especially during the summer, but anytime is great. The market has such a great vibe and great food merchants. There's a great cheese shop, a butcher, etc... I could spend hours there because there's a couple of really nice coffee places and places where you pick up a nice desert. Parking rates are... More

Definitely stop by, but it's a better place for locals than for tourists in my opinion. If you go visit, stop for lunch at Pizza Motta a few steps away from Jean-Talon. Now that is worth the distance.

I went to this market based on reviews that it was the largest market in North America and that there were tons of stands where we could get lunch. It's a little out of the way, so I was pretty disappointed when we got there and it was most empty and almost all the vendors were selling vegetables. Basically a... More
