Whenever I visit a new city, I make a point of visiting the open air and/or covered markets. This is one of the best I have ever visited. The local merchants are friendly and knowledgeable, the selection is amazing, and the food shops surrounding the market are lovely. Much more fun than the Marche Atwater, in my opinion, and I...

First attraction we did when we got into Montreal. We didn't buy any fruits or vegatables but everything was so fresh and colorful. The displays and selections was amazing! There was some fruit sampling. We did some souvenir shopping (teas, and syrups) and great to see alot of other markets inside the tents like a tea shop, and bakeries. We... More

This place was simply amazing. While staying with a friend, I Bixi'd my way to Marché Jean-Talon on a Sunday morning for breakfast and some shopping. The food selection was great, especially the number of raw milk cheeses. If I wouldn't have had to fly home to Winnipeg, I'm sure I could have spend hundreds of dollars on cheese, cider,... More

My wife comes from Montreal, and her parents and immigrant grandparents shopped here, regularly buying entire flats of fresh food to take home and preserve. I heard so much about this place that I came here about 12 years ago to explore the secret of how a farmers and fresh market had such a huge customer base and sold food... More

About two miles north of downtown Montreal there is a fun outdoor (but covered) market called the Marche Jean-Talon. Stalls and stalls of produce, flowers, and specialty products. The market is lined with specialty shops selling items such as olive oil, tea, imported gourmet food, meats, etc. Inside the market area is a creperie stand which sells delicious gluten-free crepes....

Whether you are a tourist or will be staying awhile in Montreal, this is a destination you won't want to miss. Part farmers market, part street fair, Jean-Talon Market is a favorite place to see beautiful produce strikingly displayed, grab a great crepe for lunch, and enjoy people watching. We were only in town for four days, but of we... More

Fresh vegetables, home grown, often organic but also meat, fish, sausages and Quebec specialties. Avoid the supermarkets and get your groceries there. Even if they may sometimes be a bit more expensive, it is 100% fresh and tasteful.

The market was nice. I felt adventurous so I took the subway from downtown. Fresh veggies and fruit. Plenty of samples. You can visit the market and still have time to see some other attractions.
