We went to the Atwater market on a beautiful sunny day on impulse. We got off a bus at Atwater and decided on the spot to go to the market. We wanted to go for lunch. The market is full of produce, cheese, jams, meats and cheese. The specialty chocolate store was fun to shop in. Prices are really high... More

The Atwater Market is very impressive. Fruits, vegetables, fungi, plants, flowers, jams, jellies, preserves, and more. Both the indoor and outdoor stores are clean and beautifully arranged. The produce is fresh and reasonably priced. There were many things I would have bought if I lived there. It is apparently open year round.

DH and I stopped here on bike ride along Lachine Canal and grabbed quick lunch. Lobster roll (who could resist?) and kale salad for him, beet and goat cheese salad for me. All amazing--fresh and tasty. Marveled at the beautiful produce, delicious breads and pastries, and yummy looking cheese displayed. Unfortunately we were leaving that day and heading to US... More

Magnificent fruits and veggies. Pastries, chocolate and meats fantastic as well. A feast for the eyes. We rode bikes from old Montreal to the market. Beautiful ride.

Do they realize they're next to a supermarket? High prices and not that large of an attraction. Everyone seemed to be going to the bakery inside.

Beautiful array of fresh fruit & vegetables on display. Everything just looked and smelled delicious. Meats and cheeses also available indoors. Great outdoor seating area available, hot foods being cooked at a number of stalls. Well worth a visit for lunch.

Many stands with local farmers selling their produce. On the inside are meat shops. Also inside are a couple of boulangeries selling pastries and desserts as well as other breakfast items like croissants, bagels, and coffee. There is also a food court outside that opens at 11am on Sunday with things like paella, grilled chicken, satay, English fish and chips,... More

I mention the parking first because it was the one thing I couldn't find in the reviews. We almost didn't stop on our way out of Montreal for this reason. There is plenty of free parking available. The market is fine-typical of most large city markets. We certainly didn't make a morning of it but picked up fruit and snacks... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighborhood Profile
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 Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
