If you enjoy food and like shopping for excellent local meats, cheeses and vegetables you should not miss this place. The farm market stalls on the weekends are loaded with an incredible variety of seasonal produce - I bought local garlic at incredible prices and fresh cranberries. There were all variety of apples and all the fall squash and carrots.... More

I just love shopping at the Jean-Talon Market...all year. Even in the winter there are so many places still open. In other seasons it's one of the most impressive places to bring out-of-town guests. The vegetables, fruits, meats, etc. are so fresh and gorgeous to look at. And, who doesn't want to buy local? I highly recommend it any time... More

We went to the market to visit Epices de Cru but we thoroughly enjoyed walking all around the market. We looked in all the shops and stalls, spoke with staff, and made a number of purchases. We left with fresh pasta, sausages, bacon, desserts, maple syrup and more. We will go again but will bring a cooler with us so... More

They have samples of fruit out that are absolutely delectable! The oranges, apples, pears, treats are all delicious!!! Every town should have a market this big! :-) This is a definite go out of your way to see and bring a shoppers bag because you won't leave empty handed.

From the fresh vegetables to fruits the market has it all. From specialty stores like Hamel cheese store (my opinion the best in Montréal) to restaurants.

This is a regular visit for me. A true foodies market. It has everything. True reflection of Montreal as a city that just cannot be beat for restaurants and food. Healthy, local and multi cultural. Love, love this place. Best from May to mid November when produce is at its best!

One of our best choices in Montreal was to stay in Little Italy, close to this market. Easy access (by bus or subway) to any other part of the city, with the advantage of taking only 5 minutes by walk to this temple of fresh, delicious and perfumed produce. A hot sweet corn to start, samples of peaches, pears, berries... More

This is an outdoor market in the Italian neighborhood of Montreal. If you like markets and local foods, it's a very fun excursion. And you can eat your way through a good portion of it. We had raw oysters at an oyster bar at one end of the market. Then my husband had a fresh mushroom soup at a stall... More

This place is HUGE. A little hard to get to from Old Montreal where we were staying, but worth the trip. They had a very wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, maple syrup, and chocolate. Expect to spend at least an hour wandering through it.
