This is a nice, colorful and small market. You'll get fresh products and there's also a small bookstore with nutrition and recipes books. But if you're not into cooking or buying food maybe is not worth the visit. I enjoyed taking pictures to all those colors.

All the vendor's have been vetted and only top notch vendors sell their products there. There is a wide variety of: produce, honeys, canned fruits and jam type items, charcuterie, spices, restaurants, fresh oysters, cheeses and the list goes on. It is more expensive than Attwater market. I was able to find some great items as unusual gifts. In the... More

Friends had told us about Atwater Market, but a local Tourist Office recommended Marche Jean Talon instead. Our only regret is that we waited until our last day in Montreal to visit it. Jean Talon is easily accessible on the Metro and largely outdoors--so perfect for nice weather and at least a half day's visit. The produce is terrific--raspberries, blackberries,... More

The market is nice with lots of fresh fruit, herbs, fresh meat and cheeses. The market is a short walk from the Metro.. Neighborhood was just okay! I wouldn't go back, it was a small market. If you have been to the Seattle Fish Market, this will not impress. However, my suggestion. If you are going to Mount Royal park,... More

I love visiting markets, whether they're small neighborhood bodegas to large city markets like Marche Jean-Talon. We visited Montreal in autumn but that doesn't mean the market only had pumpkins and apples. Plenty of produce everywhere, beautiful colors and displays. Come hungry, there are many, many diverse places to eat in the market and nearby.

We hit the market early Sunday morning, met our niece to do some shopping. The stalls were full of great fresh produce, lots of peppers and squash to pick from. It's worth the time to just walk around and enjoy the colors, flavors, and great little surprises to be found.

Amazing place! You can sample most of the produce which in itself is heavenly! A whole journey of colours, sights and sounds! Great walk through! Many restaurants and bars around the market as well. Very close to the Metro. Great place to buy produce, herbs, hand made toiletries etc... A must see when visiting Montreal!

Thank ayeshau

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.
