  • One of the first market on Montreal, Read the history before going and or go visit Pointe a Calliere. You will understand the significance of this building  more »
  • If you are in the area, it is worth stopping by. I would not necessarily make it a destination. Walking around the area is fun and doing a walk-through this market is worth it as part of the old city ...  more »
  • I thought the exterior of this building, near the old port, was stunning. And it's great that these older buildings have been renewed and brought back to life. The shops inside are a mixture of clothe...  more »

  • This market is beautiful outside. Looks very historic and old. We went there thinking it would be a very real market, like many others we visited in Montreal, but we were wrong. Its extremely touristic and pricey. As a person who enjoys history, it truly takes away the charm of the place.
  • Charming indoor market under a beautiful, silver domed building. Plenty of souvenir shops, some are a bit pricier for the quality and quantity they provide however the market assembles all these shops in one area, providing ease of access and efficient shopping. Definitely check it out if you're looking to purchase souvenirs in Montreal!
  • A shopping center near notre dame Basilica. Convenient location and worthwhile to explore inside. It's a 2-story domed public market and surrounded by many interesting restaurants and shops as well.
  • Beautiful building used for selling expensive clothing, jewelry and some art. I love walking around this area. And the baileys coffee with foam is ok nice.
  • There are lots of little shops in a nice heritage building. Nice to visit. Try the iced cider samples it was the highlight. Otherwise touristy selection of goods.
