Looking for unique food, produce and goods in Montreal? You need to stop by the Atwater Market. I have found shopping for gifts here is a breeze. Highly recommend the meat and cheese shops. Come after 11am for a fantastic lunch that is also reasonable.

I found the produce in this market to be of top quality and beautifully displayed. The vendors are very polite and cheerful and most are bilingual. There are many little stalls/shops selling meats, baked goods and specialty foods such as fancy oils, vinegars, jams, chutneys and so much more. There are also several places to buy cut flowers, plants and... More

This is a nice market with local produce, meats, and other foods. It is relatively close to the center of town, so public transport or taxi will be required. While everything looked fine, there was not much variety. There was only one bakery, and only two places where you can purchase foie gras (the reason we went there). There were... More

Lookingfor a way to spend a sunny fall afternoon? Stop by the Atwater Market, pick up some fresh produce (the blueberries are fantastic) a baguette from one of the vendors, a beverage of your choice and have a picnic along the adjacent Lachine Canal. There is a wide variety of produce and food products to tempt any palate!

This market is full of produce of all occasions and for all appetites. Bring cash as most of the kiosks do not take debit or credit. Do not hesitate to shop around if looking for something particular as prices may vary a lot from one vendor to another. Do expect a lot of people on week-ends. After food shopping, you... More

This is the greatest place - so lively and colorful! There are tons of fresh veggies to purchase, cheese to taste, pizza to taste, and pastries to take in. So many vendors and a great place to just walk and take in everything that is Atwater.

We go to Jean Talon market, but wanted to see Atwater. So glad we did! Wish we were staying longer in Montreal, as this is the place to get anything & everything fresh! The meat markets were all wonderful........the cheeses-tres bonne! The veggies outside........all were wonderful. If you like farmer's markets, you must visit Atwater!

Bustling ,vibrant market with everything you need and lots that you didn't think you did need! The displays of fruit and veg are really colourful and fresh, these are mainly outdoor. There is a lovely outdoor eating area too selling ,tapas, satay, mushroom dishes,nuts and fresh super juices. Indoors you have meats,cheese,pattiserie and coffee and a cafe. Delightful.

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.
