One person in our party of four who said he didn't think he could spend more than 30 minutes in an outdoor market. Well he was pleasantly surprised. The third place we stopped was a cheese shop where we were all given samples of cheese as the two men in our party started buying several cheeses each. It was great... More

This is a place that's definitely great for locals but not for tourists, unless shopping at a farmers market is your thing to do when on vacation.

Not denying the freshness of the produce, or the quality of the offerings, I do think that there are better food markets in the city of Montreal. While the produce is plentiful, this market lacks eye appeal which to me is so important in appreciating the veggies and fruits. There are a few seafood and meat purveyors, but the market... More

Wow this place is amazing. It's a huge outdoor farmers located near Little Italy and there is so much more than just smoked meat and produce. There are desserts galore, prepared meals such as bison burger and bison hot dog, cheap tacos (3 for $5), fresh oysters and handmade soap and tea. I would definitely recommend coming here if you...

We loved it so much, we returned before leaving the city. Many opportunities to try delicious farm food and the produce was so incredible. This daily market transports a person, with its color and scents. Flowers and cheese and cured meats, as well as flowers and baked goods. Great place for local maple syrups, candies, and our favorite, maple butter.... More

A great market, though not quite as good as the Atwater market. Go for lunch, and don't pass the oyster bar without bellying up for a dozen of the very best.

I don't know why it's taken me so long to write a review of this place - I've been going there for years! Location: In the heart of Little Italy. The closest subway is probably de Castelnau (blue line) or Jean Talon (orange). The market offers indoor and outdoor parking (space is limited - get there early) and street parking... More

If you're a tourist, you probably won't be able to bring lots of fresh fruits and veggies. But, there are things you can bring, like ice cider. There is a stand, where the guy sells apple cider slushies which are very refreshing. He also sells ice cider wine. It was great. He's so nice too. I recommend eating at this... More

We lived downtown so to get here we had to take the metro which was an adventure of its own but it was easy. Going here gave us a chance to see a bit more of the city and learn that basically no one would speak english to us on purpose outside of the tourist ridden downtown. But I guess... More
