  • On the walk through the old Montreal found this building and it made me indispensable to come to know him. I found myself before a gallery of exclusive business, with exquisite models. Its restaurants are magnificent, and in times of warm open their terraces.

  • After the tour of the old port, with a cold of fall, we landed in the market by surprise, it was not in the program. But it was very welcome! Indeed, we went there to warm and have the opportunity to buy a few souvenirs and drinking something hot. This is tourism, not very big but quite charming.

  • Beautiful architecture, and the art exhibits are nice as well. The inside is clean also for a quick bathroom break or rest for air conditioning. The shops are over priced and made for the rich tourist. Though if you wanted some memorable/unique stuff come visit. I just think it's a beautiful spot on old Montreal.
  • If you have a chance go to the Braderie de la mode Quebecoise in October, best deals on really nice winter coats! Place is huge, helpful staff
  • not a fan of the place. it's mostly souvenir shops which are all the same. you visit one, you've seen them all. the only time i'm at marché bonsecours is for the special events like je t'aime en chocolat (which is not bad) and mostly la braderie de mode clearance sale (for the fashionista in you, this is what heaven looks like minus the golden gates!) is the place worth visiting? only if you stay outside and admired the architectural structure or you have a lot of time or you literally got lost
  • Feels more like an indoor mall than a market. Left a bit disappointed. Certainly some gems to be found, particular with local clothing with unique styles. Lots of trinkets and souvenir shops.
  • Where: Bonsecours Market - Montreal, Quebec What: An indoor market or sorts. How was it: It's not really what you expect inside. We visited some of the shops, but they offer similar merchandise to stores you find on Ste-Catherines downtown. Grade: Eli = 3, Serge = 3 Recommend: If you are passing by you can see what they have to offer.
