Excellent little market to get a the oddest things. They have a little Mexican resto there. Good spot for lunch. Great FRESH Raw Oysters booth there. Olive Oil store with a great selection and a bakery/creamery in the corner with awesome ice cream. So if you enjoy farmer's market, this is the one not to be missed.

Not just produce, but charcuterie, spices, specialized meats, mushrooms, flowers, and so much more! Autumn Harvest season is the best!

Jean Talon Market is a delight is every way. The fresh produce is a feast for the eyes and an extraordinary photo op. Take time to sample the fruits as you stroll and explore both the stalls and the surrounding stores and chat with the store and stall operators. They are extremely interesting and knowledgable about the goods they sell.... More

This is a great outdoor market. It’s the perfect place to meander up and down the isle of a seemly endless supply of produce, flowers and prepared food stands. You could smell the freshness of the produce in the air. It seemed like you were on the farm and the items were still on the vines. I was in Montreal... More

Have been to Montreal many times, but have rarely been able to visit during the warmer months. Love the Marche Jean-Talon in the winter and early spring, love it even more in the warmer months. Could not believe how much bigger it was in early September. There was so much to see, smell, and taste. Lots of opportunities to sample... More

We came here on Sunday. We had visited Marche Atwater on a previous trip and heard about Jean-Talon. Though very different in terms of size and scope, than Atwater, this was a great trip. The colorful vegetables and fruits made for some great pictures. A lot of the stand have free tasting of their crops. If you have never tasted... More

My family visited the market that I used to go to with my grandmother. My kids were amazed at the variety. The merchants were extremely helpful. We left with bread, pastries, cheese, pate and maple syrup. The kids still talk about what a fun experience it was.

What a beautiful, colorful place. Close the the best meal we had in Montreal - just some simple sausages, a couple pork tacos and some gelato and macaron. Just tremendous all around. So colorful and fresh.

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
