  • The market appears to cater exclusively to non-Canadian travelers, targeting foreigners who are looking to buy plaid, maple leaf decorated shirts, wood carvings, and other kitchy items. Dont expect an...  more »
  • Antiques of the old show - Montreal is held every year in the fall in the beautiful Hall of the Bonsecours market town. This show, which takes place in the space of a weekend, brings together usually 15 antique sorted on the pane, and has nothing to envy to other exhibitions of the kind presented in major U.S. cities. We can't take the opportunity to visit the shops of creators by located in the Bonsecours market.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
