Montreal’s Public Markets comprise some 15 markets scattered across the Island of Montreal. Throughout the year, you’ll find first-rate products and a warm welcome at your urban public markets. Generations of both merchants and customers have grown up in their family-friendly village-like atmosphere.
Situated in the heart of Little Italy,
Jean Talon market is open year-round and its enthusiastic and experienced producers and merchants offer fresh and locally grown or processed foods, and discoveries from other places. Jean Talon Market is one of the largest open-air markets in North America, bustles with activity year round.
Situated in Montreal’s Southwest borough, close to the Lachine Canal,
Atwater Market is celebrated for its many butcher shops and cheesemongers, its horticultural producers in the spring, and its market gardeners, who set up their stands around the building as soon as summer begins. Shopkeepers also provide a wide variety of fresh, refined and original merchandise.
Maisonneuve Market is the perfect place to buy locally-grown food or to make gastronomic discoveries. With one quick stop at your neighbourhood market, you can pick up everything you need, be it bread, meat, cheese, spices or vegetables.
Situated a few steps from the Lachine Canal bicycle path, the
Lachine Market has a long and rich history. It is the oldest public market in Montreal: opened in 1845 on the site of the borough’s current town hall, it was the heart of the town’s economic district. Destroyed by a fire in 1866, the market reopened 40 years later on Notre-Dame Street. It has been open year-round since 2004.
