Located in Little Italy north of downtown Montreal. Accessible by car (parking can be interesting but doable), subway or bus. Permanent farmers market surrounded on the outside by small restaurants and specialty stores - cheese, meats, Italian, etc. Reasonable prices, numerous choices, great even just to walk through.

This is eye candy for a farmer's market shopper! Table after table and row upon row of fresh fruits, vegetables, plants, flowers and sweets. It's hard to know where to start, as there's no beginning nor end. My best advice is to check it all out and then go back to the vendors you like. There are some price differences... More

We have come to Canada on vacation 3 years in a row and this is always out last stop prior to the drive home. We stock up on beautiful produce and put it in a cooler. The fruits and vegatables are so amazing here, both to look at and eat. It is nice to see that they have NON GMO... More

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
