We went out of our way to take the Metro to check out this market. It was huge, having every type of fruit and vegetable you would want. They had a lot of samples to try if you wished. We walked around Little Italy, not too impressive shops or restaurants but the market was the prime thing to see.

This place was amazing...one of the highlights of our vacation for sure. I live in a very "foodie" region and I've never seen the kind of quality they have at Jean-Talon...and it's consistent in every single vendor. Everything is presented in a way that it looks.like it should be on the cover of a food machine. Amazing.

I went to the market not for the sake of buying a thing. In fact I came to know it from a friend and being in the area decided to give it a look. I guess it is a typical local market. Yes the food looks fresh, and the veggies and fruits are very attractive, but for the market to... More

Everything was obviously farm fresh and the prices were very reasonable even cheap by my standards There were some eating places and specialty meat and cheese little shops. Towards the main road were two mouth watering cheese and... More

A short walk from a train line, this was the biggest and most produce-centred market we visited in Montreal. We were lucky to be there at the peak of the fresh fruit and berries season and it was painful to not buy some of everything. Surrounding the main market stall area are a range of little shops selling Maple products,... More

This is not really a review of the Jean-Talon Market, which is, as many, many reviewers have noted, a must-see for any visitor to Montreal. Rather, it's a response to the reviewer from Toronto who found the people at the market unfriendly, unwelcoming and unwilling to speak English. I was at Jean-Talon as recently as this past weekend (mid-August 2015).... More

I came to Montreal for a month and found 2 markets,Atwater which was very close and Jean-Talon Market which is larger but has the same quality vendors. I went to Jean-Talon seafood market called Aqua Mare Seafood. I was in search of fresh tuna for my menu... More

The Jean-Talon Market is a lovely place to visit in the Little Italy neighborhood of Montreal. Not only are there every imaginable fruit and vegetable in season with lots of samples to be tasted but a variety of delicious food stands. In the back center is a great taco stand with mouth watering pulled pork , Middle Eastern pastry stand... More

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.
