  • Where: Jean Talon market, Montreal What: An outdoor market How was it: It's open year round and always has a seasonal feel to it. The winter has a nice and cozy feel to it and the summer is great because we are free to walk with less clothing. Great selection of produce during the summer and close walk to the metro. There is also an underground parking that is just beside ! Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 5 Recommend : Yeah, check it out anytime of year !
  • Lovely local, fresh (almost always) organic produce here. Nice quaint yet bustling market. Quite a few nice Chacuteries (meats/sausage place) and Fromageries (cheese place) around. There's a nice big SAQ (Liquor and wine store) right behind the market.
  • A great lively open air market in the heart of Little Italy which also includes brick and mortar shops within it's periphery. Fruits, veggies, flowers, spices, oils, cheese, meat, fish, baked goods, ice cream in addition to a fine selection of organic products. The open air area is sheltered and heated in the winter making the market a great all year round shopping destination.
  • Vibrant market for all kinds of food including locally produced specialties. Free tastings available and often decent live music (busking).
  • There is so many good things to say about the Jean Talon Farmer's Market. It beats out the Atwater Market in so many regards. The shops are decent, there are samples of fresh fruit from many vendors and the prices are on par with what you would find at farmer's markets. You are also supporting local businesses which is definitely a plus in my books. Remember to bring cash, but if not, there are ATMs on premises.
