I love markets. i like the bustle, the carnival atmosphere and the passion of individuals marketing their well-curated wares. The fruit and vegetables are fresh, and you can sample many at the stalls before you buy. There are all kinds of meats, fresh, smoked, brined, cured many of them artisanal and often organic as well. The selection of cheeses is... More

I think the Jean Talon Market is kind of cute in its own way! Nice people work there, it's generally clean, and it's much better quality food for a better price for people who travel and don't necessarily want to spend on restaurants - to note that there's a couple of little restaurants there and the Satay Brothers is very...

Can't say enough about how great this place is. I grew out just a couple blocks away. Where do I start? The people who work here are genuinely helpful, so neighborly, funny and I can not think of any store I feel more welcome in.

try the fresh juice stand, expensive but really delicious, especially the végé-total. try also the portugese tarts, the maple one is my favourite. if you are looking for cheap produce, go on the stands on the outskirts of the market and look for the old stuff, most of the time its less pretty but still good, especially in the case...

What an amazing market even in the winter. The smells were unbelievable but the taste of the veggies surpassed the imagination. We wish we were staying someplace that we could cook because the products were exactly what you would want. Fresh eggs, beautiful tomato, lettuce, artichoke, etc. how about the mushroom shop? Or the fromage? Truly an excursion you CANNOT... More

My husband and I decided to walk from our city hotel to the market. And whilst that may have been a questionable decision, since the walk was MUCH longer than we anticipated, it was worth it. The local vendors have great produce with many organic options. It is worth going at lunch as there is fresh seafood, sandwiches, rice dishes... More

I've been going to this market for 8 years, and they have made some significant improvements in 2015. better parking, better signs, fresh facades, a lot of new businesses abutting the market due to the improved market. Olive oils, teas, chocolates, authentic mexican foods, breads, coffee, spices....a lot. It is right next to Petit Italy (Little Italy) which is even... More

What a feast for the eyes, and tummy! If you can eat it you can get it here. It was one of my favorite places to visit in Montreal as I love to cook and eat. So many products are from Quebec Provence, great to bring home some of the Canadian products as souvenirs/gifts. We visited in December and have... More

Highly recommend this stop for anyone who likes to cook or eat :) We timed our visit around breakfast and enjoyed the most delicious affordable croissant sandwiches right inside the front entrance. We then walked on to enjoy produce, bakeries, kitchen stores and plenty of other delicious stalls. We filled two bags to take back home with us. Maple syrup,... More

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighborhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
