Although very small, this is a charming place to visit. Mid week in April, is maybe not the best time as it was very quiet and there would be more outside stalls open in better weather or on a Saturday. Just the same, we enjoyed the excursion and wished that we hadn't had breakfast or that we were there later... More

This place is interesting to visit in any season: Christmas trees in December, flower market in the spring and summer season, great stuff for halloween and good indoor shops in winter. Come enjoy a pastry, cofee, chocolate or an ice cream but when it comes to fruits and vegetables, this place is just TOO EXPENSIVE for a public market. It's... More

We stopped here in search of cheese, maple syrup and crafts. There were no crafts that we saw on the day of our visit. There were several fruit and vegetable vendors and food shops. The Fromage Atwater is worth a stop for fresh local cheese, butter and meat. We picked up a few types of cheese and some spices. We... More

So glad we booked an apartment that had kitchen facilities. We got loads of fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and seafood from Atwater Market. Live crabs, lobsters and giant scallops! Free 90 minute parking on site and literally where the locals shop. So happy with the stuff we bought and didn't feel like a touristy place at all although plenty... More

Definitely make the trip to Atwater Market!! Such a great experience checking out the stalls and tasting. Get a maple stick when you enter and purchase as many items as you can while you're here. You won't be sorry!

I stopped by at Marché Atwater to grab some lunch before heading over to the airport. They have lots of local produce as well as some very Canadian maple-related souvenirs. I got a sandwich from a shop at the corner; they also had lots of bread and cake.

Tucked away off the subway line, this local market has great fresh produce and meats along with many cheese shops. A small coffee shop on the second floor is the place to go for coffee.

Been coming to this market over many years and it just withstands the tests of time. The variety of family owned outlets, the quality and choices of foods available are just fantastic. In between there are plenty of small boutique outlets to take break and have a coffee or lunch! Not a usual place for inclusion on a tourist itinerary... More

That was the highlight of the trip. The smells, the freshness, the flavors, all concentrated in one place were the locals go to have a cup of coffee, or to snack and to buy groceries. I wish our local markets in DC were half as good as this one. We arrived late and most of the vendors were closing but... More

One of the best experiences in Montreal. Got to sit among the locals as they enjoyed a lazy Saturday morning breakfast at the market. It was a little slow at that time, but we managed to get some great cheeses and to get some great stuff from the bakery.

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
