Official Opening of the Summer Season at Montreal’s Public Markets

All press releases

Official Opening of the Summer Season at Montreal’s Public Markets
Montreal, May 5, 2021 – This Friday, May 7, marks the official opening of the summer season for Montreal’s network of public markets. In the coming weeks, Montrealers will find their favourite seasonal vendors opening at the Atwater, Jean-Talon and Maisonneuve markets, as well as the city’s neighbourhood markets.

“The opening of the summer season is an exciting time for both vendors and customers. There’s no better place than Montreal’s Public Markets for buying local, finding the freshest new arrivals and getting advice from our passionate merchants,” said Nicolas Fabien-Ouellet, executive director of the Corporation de gestion des marchés publics de Montréal.

To ensure the safety of vendors and the public, several public health measures related to COVID-19 are in effect: mandatory masks in all markets, Plexiglass barriers at counters, agents to remind people of health measures and physical distancing requirements, handwashing stations, preference given to contactless payment, and more.

HORTICULTURAL PRODUCERS ARRIVE AT THE LARGE MARKETS

In addition to year-round vendors, the opening of the summer season comes with the arrival of numerous horticulturists at the city’s large public markets. Several are already open at the Atwater and Jean-Talon markets, offering flowers, garden seedlings and potted herbs, while others are putting the finishing touches on their stalls in preparation for Mother’s Day weekend, May 7, 8 and 9. Meanwhile at Maisonneuve Market, shoppers will already find everything they need for this year’s gardening. “We expect to see strong demand for horticultural products at our public markets this year. To meet the increased demand, some of our vendors have expanded their stalls, resulting in a 12% increase in the occupancy rate of the two largest markets during flower season,” Mr. Fabien-Ouellet noted.

To avoid crowds, shoppers are advised to arrive early in the day or at the beginning of the week.

The Corporation de gestion des marchés publics de Montréal is a social-oriented economy enterprise responsible for the planning, development and operation of Montreal’s Public Markets. Since 1993, it has been mandated by the City of Montréal to manage the Atwater, Jean-Talon and Maisonneuve markets, six Neighbourhood Markets and three Solidarity Markets. The CGMPM’s mission is to improve access to fresh produce, meat, fish, cheeses, a variety of products and restaurants through a network of public markets that brings Montrealers closer to local farmers and agri-food businesses. It is a non-profit organization governed by a board of directors composed of five merchants and five residents of the Montreal urban agglomeration. Its membership includes nearly 200 merchants. The Corporation’s network of public markets is frequented by more than three-quarters of Montrealers, with over 3 million visits annually.
