  • Historic Montreal market place. Next to many other historic sites in old Montreal. Awesome architecture. Overlooking the Saint Laurent River. Has a few restaurants and shops. Now host lots of exhibitions and other events like wine festivals for local producers and another one for private important, photo exhibitions... Worth the detour.
  • Cute but expensive market in Old Port. Worth visiting as a tourist. It is a beautiful building. Tons of maple products and artisan items. Great way to escape the cold for a while.
  • Beautiful building. Touristy type shops. Great for window shopping or picking an odd souvenir.
  • Really great markets housed in a beautiful old building. Vendors are also friendly and helpful. Recommended more for tourists looking for unique gift ideas, art or fashion accessories.
  • Its a very nice building, however, I personally think, this should be a traditional market rather than a souvenirs' super over priced shops and boutiques. Like why would you come here and buy a shirt for 200$ or a kid pyjamas for 100$.. Its just a waste of such a nice historical building.
