    Lovely building, on the outside.
    Bonsecours Market or Marche Bonsecours, is a sort of a "tale of two stories"! The building itself is a wonderful architectural structure, from the outside. From a distance it looks like a glorious building and from close up it looks fantastic. It houses dozens of a range of shops, mostly boutiques, but also cafes and other touristy shops. Unfortunately they are all very expensive! We browsed through some of them and quickly left. Also some of the staff do not seem to know how to treat potential customers, not that too many people would buy anything,!

    Mtl decor store
    I really like this place in Montreal. One of my favorite actually. There are so many unique stores but the best one is Mtl decor!🤩 if you’re looking for something memorable to bring from Montreal visit Mtl decor. They sell unique decor and if you’re lucky enough you can even meet the artist himself who makes these pieces of art. Also they sell collection money.

This market houses a bunch of cute, little shops where you can spend lots of money buying fancy, expensive jewelry and art, or spend a little money buying chachkes, tee shirts, and handicrafts. I spent most of my money buying Canda-made food and maple products. All of the shops are on one floor. I did an initial quick visit to each shop to scope out potential souvenirs, then returned to the shops where I wanted to make purchases. There are public bathrooms in the middle of the market and a fairly-priced cafe called Café des Arts with delicious food and beverages on one end.

The building itself is stunning. The location is also very special, in vieux Montreal just off St Paul Ouest and Ruw de la Commune. The reason for my poor review is this. First, the stores here absolutely inaccessible to anyone other than extremely well off people. Everything is so expensive. What I was REALLY put off by however we’re the craft stores selling goods they either outright said or implied we’re Indigenous art. This is absolutely not so. The items for sale here are mass market recreations and I very much doubt any of the profit goes to Indigenous peoples. It felt disrespectful and like cultural approbation.

This is a large building with a silver dome. I thought it must be a govn building. Turns out that it is an indoors shopping mall with mostly higher quality souvenirs. There is also a public restroom inside. Enter the middle main doors under the dome.

This place is a disgrace to the human race. No one should go there. The service is unprofessional and disrespectful. They are a racist establishment with profiling in place. The food is disgusting and overpriced. The cleanliness is doubtful. The manager along with the staff have poor attitude. Their tartare is horrible and makes people sick along with the rest of their food. They do not respect social distanciation. They are shockingly unfriendly. I do not recommend this place.

This isn't really a "food market" its more a collection of tourist oriented shops. Maybe slightly more upscale than the tschoke places, its a place to walk through and pass some time. Pub BreWskey which is located on one corner has a great selection of beers and an outdoor patio once you've passed through.

The building facade is impressive, big, imponent. But that's all. Inside you only have souvenir stores. Restaurants are basically closed, no entertainment, no services available.

This grandiose building, its distinctive silver dome easily espied from far and wide, is also distinguished by its Doric columns and perfect symmetry and straddles practically an entire block with entry points from many sides. It's essentially a mall for the region's artisans with a central concourse spanning the entire length of the building's ground level (ending in the Le Cafe des Arts at one corner) and boutiques on either side showcasing the region's handicrafts from bespoke household products to artefacts and decorative objects, fashion to jewellery. The merchandise here is comparatively high-end stuff (with prices to match) and not tourist kitsch, though the occasional fridge magnet can still be found, albeit that one could buy those more cheaply in the numerous tourist kiosks across the street. Worth checking out is Galerie Ricchi with its fascinating range of Inuit art and tribal crafts and one is not just talking about dream-catchers. This is also a good place to buy some limited edition prints by Quebecois artists, maple syrup in iconic leaf-shape bottles, as well as a range of healing crystals and semi-precious stones. And if it should rain enroute to the Vieux Port, then the Marche Bonsecours is the perfect spot to take shelter in and indulge in some window shopping at the same time.
