JEAN-TALON MARKET: SATISFYING MONTREAL’S HUNGER
An indoor, 590 sq. ft. space with terrasse on Place du Marché-du-Nord is available immediately, ready to accommodate a new restaurant or ready-to-eat concept. Other opportunities will be announced soon via the markets’ social media presence. There is still time for agricultural businesses to submit proposals via the public markets’ website.
With 2.5 million visitors annually, Jean-Talon Market enjoys a worldwide reputation as an essential destination for market cuisine and locally grown ingredients. The market, which will soon mark its centennial, is justly known as the heart of Montreal’s culinary scene.
ATWATER MARKET: FAST FOOD BY LOCAL COMPANIES
Four fast-food stands, with or without on-site cooking, are available in Atwater Market’s outdoor food court. This is an opportunity to join an innovative community of restaurateurs who spend the summer outdoors making the market the city’s best place to grab a bite.
Atwater Market, located next to the Lachine Canal and its bike path, serves Little Burgundy, Saint-Henri, Westmount and Griffintown. It is a vibrant, colourful market, reflecting the surrounding neighbourhoods. It is also a popular destination for visitors.
