Creperie serving GLute Free Crepes was great (although and of course regular ones are better) but a trear. Lots of diverse food to sample, mediterranen,greek,indian, italian and home made treats from the area etc. Local farmers let you tast there produce. Easly metro ride there. Fun Weekend activity.

Best way to get here from Old Montreal is to take the convenient Metro. It is a decent walk from the station to the Market, but a good way to soak in and get the feel of this part of the City. And yes, produce and all else are here. Even more interesting are some of the tiny gourmet shops... More

Liked the fact that all the fruit vendors have cut up fruit to sample. The prices seemed pretty good. A great place to buy fresh herbs, plants and flowers. Was pretty easy to find from the Metro stop.

First off, parking below is very reasonable. This is a food lover's paradise. The best fish and seafood, including oysters are there to enjoy or take home. Spices and oils. Exotic teas or juicy sausages. Quebec's finest products. Ethnic eateries and fancy chocolatiers are full of friendly shoppers. Street musicians entertain while families relax between forays into the veg and... More

My wife and I spent the day exploring the market. What fun!! Great produce (we bought ours for the week here). We also explored the prepared food area and had the best tacos, you get three for 5.00!! Cheap!! There is a cafe that roasts their own beans and sell the best custard, the smell was amazing. We took the... More

If one wants to grasp the Montreal spirit, then Jean Talon Market is one of the places that cannot be ignored. It is not only a market ... people visiting often during the summer and fall time know what I am saying here. It is a perpetual celebration of life in colour and sound and a place where one could...

We were hoping for a market similar to those of New York or London where many different items could be purchased (art, crafts, etc). Most of the items for sale were produce, fantastic prices…just unable and no purpose to transport them back to the US. The maple syrup was deeply discounted, perhaps due to the fact that the season has... More

There are bigger farmer's markets out there but this one is a few blocks from the Metro stop (Jean Talon). It's open year round and April is a little early but there's still fruits and veggies available. There are also sausages, meats, Italian food. I tried some olive oils at Olives et Epiciers. They have a tasting station which is... More

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighborhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
