Everything is quite fresh, seems quite healthy and organic. They do have coffee shops too so you can sit down and rest your legs or just chill.

I was sorely disappointed with the number and variation of stalls within the Jean-Talon market. It is possible that high ratings may have raised my expectations of this quaint market in the Little Italy District of Montreal, inevitably leading to an underwhelming experience. This market certainly feels like a farmers market for the locals as opposed to a tourist attraction.... More

Living in Montreal, I've often visited the Jean-Talon market over the years. As one recent reviewer said, the very cheap underground parking is definitely worthwhile (enter from Avenue Henri-Julien on the east side of the market). While the market may seem "average" to someone from warmer climes, Montrealers relish the opportunity to wander through so many aisles of fresh produce... More

I can't understand the raving reviews of this market. It is an average farmer's market with fresh vegetables, fruits, wines, and other snacks. The prices are average, and the best thing it has going for it is the cheap underground parking. If you were a local it might be a convenient stop on the way home from work but in... More

During traveling we always want to try some local food and to get a nice overview we often visit food markets. This market not only offers fresh local fruits, vegetables, meats and cheese but there are also small shops to enjoy some cake, crêpes, sandwiches or other dishes.

It was our first trip to Montreal, and when my wife and I travel we enjoy sampling local culture and the best way to do that is to find a local market. Needless to say we were not disappointed with Jean Talon, it was quiet March Saturday, the market was busy but not crowed, we walked the aisles while being... More

It's a good place to find fresh fruits, vegetables, maple syrup, canadian souvenirs and so on. This is a good environment that tourists should visit in their visit in Montreal.

I really enjoyed my trip here where I ate warm/hot maple candy on a stick on a bed of snow. It's the best thing ever. I also liked the restaurant there that served Tortiere and other Quebec specialities. Lovely place!

One of the very best markets I have ever visited. Even in the middle of winter, there was stall after stall of fresh fruits and vegetables, fantastic baked goods, gelato, tacos, spices etc. Definitely a place to get the feel for "real" Montreal, beyond the typical tourist sites.

A great market for fresh produce, but the shops like Fromagerie Hamel and Premiere Moisson Bakery around the corner are a must if you are in this area. Definitely worth the detour as it will be more memorable then the Market itself.My review of Atwater mentioned this 2 Montreal institution, with a number of outlets. This obviously is the Italian...

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.
