Located in the “Petite Italie”, this public market offers not only an exceptional variety of fresh produce (mostly local in the summer), but also meat, oils, spices, cheese, seafood and fish as well as baked goods, flowers, and a great selection of products from all over the province. Really love it.

Excellent food choices if you care to graze for a meal, and try everything. Vendors were helpful, for the most part. It could have been a five-start rating if not for the Oyster vendor (at the entrance) - paid for a $30/dozen oyster but they picked all from the $2 a piece selection. Better if bought a la carte.

It's a short walk to the market from the Jean Talon Metro stop or you can ride a BIXI bike there. Spend at least an hour or two walking around buying some fresh local produce in late August and in the autumn and devour! The local strawberries and blueberries are incredible! Outside the edge of market, plenty of stands/cafes to... More

If you are staying somewhere where you can bring your own food, this is the place to go. The produce is unbelievable! Every fresh thing you can want. Veggies, fruit, mat and cheese from some of the best purveyors in Montreal. We were sad we had no way to store any thing. Be sure to go early and have breakfast... More

This market made me wish I lived in Montreal. Incredible selection of fresh Quebec produce, food stalls, cafes and a generally great vibe. If you in any way consider yourself a foodie, you HAVE to go spend a couple of hours at the market.

This is the one that every Montrealers or tourist must get to know. Well frequented by people living on the northern part of the city where it is located, this market is so large that it would take you easily half a day if you want to know it. There are rows and row of stalls selling almost everything from... More

Many vendors to choose from. Reasonable prices. So beautiful and fun to walk through. Many vendors offer samples. Meats, seafood and cheeses are also available. Baked goods look delicious and there are potions for lunch as well. A don't miss when visiting Montreal.

The market is a short walk from the Jean Talon metro stop. We spent a few hours exploring the market. In addition to a lot of flower stalls and fruit/vegetable vendors, there were some places where one could grab a quick bite to eat. We ended up at my favorite bakery Premiere Moisson and ordered some sandwiches.

Jean talon has such a variety of produce and goods - definitely worth the trip! Rows and rows of fruits, veggies, cheese, meats, and other goods. Good cafes around too. It felt like Paris!

This was one of our stops on the Montreal tour. The Jean-Talon Market, in the heart of Little Italy, is one of the oldest public markets in Montreal and is one of the largest public markets in North America. It is like a little village, a place where families have gathered and generations have grown, merchants and customers alike. You... More

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

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.
