We took a special trip to this market and Little Italy and couldn't figure out why it is rated so highly. Residents in the area have a nice, large, farmer's market (though several items sold are not locally grown). Good for them. The rest of us toured...a nice, large, farmer's market. If you've been to one, you've been to this... More

This is a wonderful area to walk around and see food stands and people watch. All the fruit, vegetables and flowers are so bright and beautiful. You can browse just to enjoy the view, or purchase fantastic food including cheeses, pastries, breads, meats and anything else you could think of. A very different experience.

Visit this market to experience the ambience of a functional, well stocked, daily market. The food displays are eye opening, so do not go when your hungry. Very close to the canal and the chance to walk off those extra calories. A must for foodies.

This market contains a variety of vendors from fruits and vegetables to cheesemakers, charcuterie, freshly made gelato, pasta and specialty sourced spices. You could spend hours wandering and sampling locally produced foods.

You will have to take a special subway trip out to get here. It is not worth it. It seems like it's all food and no other items being sold here. Lots of it seems to have come in from other cities. I think we were tricked by some of the hype in the guidebooks. It is definitely a unique... More

We always try to visit local market when we travel. This was a good one. Although there were a lot of tourists, local residents were also doing their shopping there. The market is easily accessible by public transportation. There were prepared foods as well as meats, veggies, fruits, cheeses and flowers. Great butcher with interesting sausages.

I loved every minute of my visit to the market and bought so many fresh fruits and vegetables that were simply delicious! I loved that we were able to taste some fruits and vegetables before purchasing them! I also discovered a delicious gluten free Crêperie called Crêperie du marché. We went on a Saturday morning, grabbed breakfast at the crêperie... More

I was not going to visit this market in Montreal but decided to give it a try. I loved everything about this market! Here you will find good local food, fresh fruit and tasty pastries and cakes. Try the smoked meat sandwich, the maple pastéis de nata and buy some berries (strawberries, raspberries) which are produced locally and are very... 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.
