From colorful flowers to gourmet meats and cheeses to fresh pasta and vegetables, Jean-Talon has it all. Prices here are cheaper than the supermarkets in the city and produce far fresher. Even if you've not been tempted into buying any of the fresh produce, the market makes for all kinds of pretty photo opportunities. Wandering around the market also a... More

Asians can give this a miss as it is no different from our open air vegetable and fruit markets in Asia. It's cleaner, the fruits and vegetables are colourful and better displayed, but that's about it. Do not bother making a trip all the way there for it. But if you are in the vicinity, it's nice to pop by... More

The market is mainly for fresh fruit, although there are quite a few other products as well. Attractively laid out; produce is extremely well presented and, in several stores, there are small samples to taste. No problem taking photos. There are several small restaurants and food stands so this would be a good place for lunch.

I love the market in Cleveland, so I had to check this place out. I was not disappointed. Everyone I met was very friendly and happy to answer questions. I was able to snap some colorful photos of the produce and plants. The vendors had numerous samples to try. I would recommend going early in the morning to avoid crowds.

This market is awesome! You can easily go there for a free lunch. Most of the vendors have samples of their produce handy, so you get to go around trying everything. The atmosphere is great. There is more than fruit and vegetables there, there are roasted nuts, pastries, meats, you name it. We spent a couple of hours there and... More

Excellent little market to get a the oddest things. They have a little Mexican resto there. Good spot for lunch. Great FRESH Raw Oysters booth there. Olive Oil store with a great selection and a bakery/creamery in the corner with awesome ice cream. So if you enjoy farmer's market, this is the one not to be missed.

Not just produce, but charcuterie, spices, specialized meats, mushrooms, flowers, and so much more! Autumn Harvest season is the best!

Jean Talon Market is a delight is every way. The fresh produce is a feast for the eyes and an extraordinary photo op. Take time to sample the fruits as you stroll and explore both the stalls and the surrounding stores and chat with the store and stall operators. They are extremely interesting and knowledgable about the goods they sell.... More

This is a great outdoor market. It’s the perfect place to meander up and down the isle of a seemly endless supply of produce, flowers and prepared food stands. You could smell the freshness of the produce in the air. It seemed like you were on the farm and the items were still on the vines. I was in Montreal... More

Have been to Montreal many times, but have rarely been able to visit during the warmer months. Love the Marche Jean-Talon in the winter and early spring, love it even more in the warmer months. Could not believe how much bigger it was in early September. There was so much to see, smell, and taste. Lots of opportunities to sample... More
