About
Bustling with activity all year round since 1933, this charming market in Montreal is a favorite with both locals and travelers. Expect an overflowing selection of local specialties and a cornucopia of fresh produce ranging from exquisite cheeses, sausages, and smoked meats to fresh fruits and vegetables. Don’t leave without purchasing some local jam, cider, and maple products as souvenirs. Beyond just a grocery pit-stop, Jean-Talon Market is also renowned for its gourmet workshops and culinary demonstrations. The markets are open daily and get busier on the weekend. The best way to get to the market is by subway. – Tripadvisor

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Jean-Talon • 4 min walk

It is a short walk from the Metro. Lots of great food and treats. Just meander through and enjoy the displays. We went on a Monday afternoon and it was not crowded.

We went in October, so the fresh produce was limited, but it's still a cool place to visit. My partner bought a planter that was very cute, so there are other things to buy besides market items.

I'm sure in the warmer months, it's the place to be! Hopefully I'll be back sometime in the summertime!

Every time we go to Montreal we make it a point to stop here! Coming from Vermont we appreciate the wide variety of foods available, from ready to eat sausages, pastries, hummus, and samosas to meats, cheeses, and veggies. We tell everyone we know to stop here - and those who’ve gone agree Jean Talon is a must do!

The market is a must for a tourist like me. It provided a small glimpse where farm produce can be bought, especially the ones that are distinctly montreal!

Market Jean-Talon is at the same Metro stop (Orange Line), and while we were there in November, many kiosks were still operating outdoors. Many were closed for the winter season, but midway was a Middle Eastern Sweet Shop and we cheated and stuffed our face with Baclava and other things we could not pronounce but looked so good and tasted great. We bought sausages and salad fixings and then cooked them back at the apartment and enjoyed the meal. It was just like living here.

I was unimpressed. Maybe it was the time of year and they were wrapping up. I thought there would be a larger variety of different food stalls and shops. Conveniently close to the Metro.

Fabulous market filled with all types of fresh fruit and veggies, flowers and a varied selection of cafes and eateries.
Close to the metro, making it a no-brainer to visit.

I have been lucky to visit all 10 Canadian provinces, as well as live in several Canadian cities. During this time, I have been fortunate to have shopped at many great markets, but I must say that Jean-Talon Market is among my favourites.

Not only are the vegetables, fruits, cheeses, baked goods, and other food items of high quality, the atmosphere is a lot of fun. If you are in Montreal this is a "must see" place to visit, especially in the non-winter months.

Great local market with lots of tasty vendors and fresh produce. We had the freshest oysters, juicy sausages, lobster rolls and sweets. Lots of vendors to browse both inside and out. Prices were overall very reasonable. Some vendors don't take credit or have a minimum purchase. If you don't have Canadian cash they will take USD just know you will be paying more.

WE spent the whole day at this wonderful city market. So much good food here. We had lunch, we bought a lot of food for the apartment, we chatted with the merchants, we even bought some Canadian souvenirs for folks back home. Go to the stalls near the entrance.
