A trove of old foundries, shipyards and industrial buildings have...More

I'd been here years ago when it was summertime and all the stalls were setup outside. Now that it's off season it was a totally different vibe -- however, the bakery inside the far doors is AMAZING. As well as the cheese shop inside, the...More

we visit the market on a Wed afternoon. it was nice and quiet, although not all the stores were open. Decent selections of fresh fruits and veggies. I would suggest come to visit over the weekend instead of weekdays. Since you will have more options.

The Atwater Market feels like a little slice of France: fresh produce, amazing meats (including many styles of Duck Confit) and cheeses and delectable pastries and desserts. We loved the Premiere Moisson Bakery with the huge selection of tempting offerings. It is obviously popular from...More

This is a decent market but much smaller than Jean Talon and more expensive. There are really good butcher's and outstanding cheese shops. You can pretty much get anything you want here. It's open late during weekdays and never too busy.

Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the

Yes, there are two lots. You take a ticket and put it on your dash. It is free and it is good for 90 minutes. It is busy on the weekends.
