I read about this place online and decided to go. They've got a great selection of produce, cheeses, and meats.

For those that haven't seen what a typical French market looks like (or those whom would like a refresh) this market is a great choice. Rather big, many things to see, plenty of things to taste, pretty flowers, many locals. Would strongly recommend if you have the extra time.

This place is clean, well organized, and offers great produce at reasonable prices. My husband had a quiche at one of the stalls and it was very good too.

Found my way to the markets about midday. There are a number of different stalls - vegetables/fruits, flowers, fish monger, Italian and patisseries. But today I found it a bit lacking in atmosphere. Nonetheless I can understand why locals would choose to shop here. There was high quality products with reasonable prices.

A covered food market in Little Italy. From fresh produce to butchers to pastries, a great place to see real food sold by real people in an authentic setting. One can even eat there or take food to go to eat at home. A slice of Old Montreal.

I love markets, and this market was overfowing with fresh, colorful in season produce (we came in July). Each fruit vendor has a line of in season strawberries, blueberries, oranges, honey melons, peaches, nectarines, plums, mangoes... and many serve free samples so you can make sure they are sweet. There are a couple cheese/dairy and meat vendors. I'd recommend grabbing... More

Jean-Talon Market is a fun place to visit. There are lots of different people from different part of the world, young and old, all going to get their fresh fruits and vegetables. There is also cheeses, sausages and much more. I love going there even just to walk around. Very nice market.

We enjoyed a walk around here, inside on a cold day. You could pick up a wide variety of produce and products to take home, souvenirs (we got some maple syrup popcorn), or there were even a few places to sit and eat. There were more shops lining the sides of what I think is the summer outdoor portion of... More

I love a good market and this one did not disappoint. It was two days before Christmas, so the place was packed full of people, but that was part of the fun. Lots of local products are featured in the stalls, maple syrup is especially prominently sold everywhere you look - as well as maple butter, maple candy, maple baked... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
