The Jean-Talon market is an excellent way to spend a Sunday morning (especially in September), strolling and enjoying the fruits and vegetable stalls, tasting here and there local produces or exotic ones too ! There's also many restaurants to grab a bite, a store dedicated to spices, olive oils etc. It is truly an experience for the senses. Advice: mornings... More

Loved this. Most stall owners appeared to be french speakers, so speak french and have cash (ATM is in market too). Local produce is great.

This market was fantastic! I am always a fan of local markets while traveling and this did not disappoint. Because we were staying at a hotel, we weren't able to take the produce home, but we sampled plenty of fruits and pastries and it was a blast to walk around and feel the energy of the city!

First of all, the location is very deceiving because there are no signs and if you walk in the wrong direction like we did, you end up in a strip mall sort of place which we thought was the market at first. We finally realized we were at the wrong place after asking a local who pointed us in the... More

During our recent visit to Montréal we enjoyed the Jean-Talon Farmer's Market. The market was a short subway ride from our downtown hotel. The market is what filled with beautiful flowers and delicious fruits and vegetables. Also there something for the chocolate lover. Be sure to stop in see this beautiful landmark.

I absolutely love farmer's markets and this one has beat any I've been to so far. It brings back good memories. Smelling the fresh produce and flowers, tasting fresh made goat cheese and local wines...heaven on earth. word of caution if parking: bring cash as they only take cash and we had an issue as we didn't know.

We visited on a Saturday during beer fest and did not feel like it was too crowded. We loved seeing the fresh meats, cheeses, fish, and vegetables and fruits. It was interesting to see that you could sample the fruits being sold and people just used their hands to grab a bite! We stopped at Le Marche Des Saveurs which... More

It is definitely worth visiting street markets like this one. It has a piece that is inside the main building with a parking lot right below. There you will see locals buying all kinds of food, spices, local fruits, craft beverages, plants, flowers and many more things. It is quite an experience to discover what locals eat and use to...

A place to do it all, people watch, try food, stroll along the stands, and simply mingle with the locals as the shop. Very convenient to the Metro.

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.
