Gourmands will want to make a pilgrimage to the north part of the city to this market. Many locals prefer it over the Atwater market, perhaps because it's surrounded on all sides by the buzz and energy of the city. It's full of fresh fruits and vegetables and a host of gourmet shops. One, for instance, is the spice shop Olives & Épices, which Food & Wine magazine named the best of Montréal in... more

Are there any markets like this in the US? No. They exist all over Europe though, as well as Asia, but the US has cut them all out. Here in LA there was a poor imitation of something like it with Grand Market, but now even that has been gentrified out of existence.

Anyhow, if you would like a permanent, big farmer's market combined bakeries, butchers, fishmongers, wine stores, as well as... more

The best market in Montreal for sure. Amazing way to pass your time on a weekend.

All the produce is fresh and I would highly recommend the fisheries for fresh oysters.

Jean Talon Market: a sprawling oasis of colourful fresh produce and enticing food stalls, right in the middle of urban Montreal and open to the public. It's like a farmer's market and bazaar mixed in one, where you can buy your carrots and potatoes and then get some tacos if you feel like it.

While the produce looked lovely, as a tourist, I didn't have much of a chance to try out the local... more

Famous market in Montreal. There are plenty of fresh and diverse veggies and fruits. And some food store in the center of market. We ate tacos and tarts which are yummy, but price is a little bit high.

The corns were very juicy and sweet. Tried cranberry the first time. This is the most sour fruit I have ever ate. Good for making you keep away from sleepy.

After visiting touristic place like old Montréal, this place makes me feel like home, I wondered around for hours, attracted by varieties of local vegetables, cheese, bought samples of meats, pickled olives, sitting down with family to have a cup of coffee with choice of pastries is so relaxing. It's such a family friendly place, which makes you want to come back again.

This market a must visit for us.
It is delightful to walk through the place and admire the farm bounty that grows in the area.
Besides farm produce there are food stalls and food shops on the next block.
Parking in there underground facility is reasonable and safe. It does fill up very quickly!
There are street parking too in the neighborhood too.

Hands down, best gluten free crepes in Montreal. Not like finding gluten free crepes is an easy task anyway, but these guys use buckwheat flour, which despite its name does not contain gluten. Friendly service and even some cider on tap! Would recommend eating here before shopping at the Marche Jean Talon so that you don't shop hungry

Had a ham, cheese, mushroom and bechamel crepe. It had a buckwheat base just like the crepes in Paris. The crepe was crisp and light. The filling was generous. It was a meal in itself.

This open market reminded me of the marche of France and Belgium. You can taste fresh fruits and vegetables before you buy them. The prices are so reasonable.

One can purchase Maple Syrup and other canned or bottle items cheaper at the market than the airport shops.
