What a great market, they even have indoor parking. Fruits, veggies, maple syrup, yummy bakeries next door, an amazing spice shop, a fabulous pizza place (try the montréalaise slice but follow it with a run), VERY good Turkish delight, smoothies, Poutine, flowers, seafood, and did I mention the chocolate shop next door? What a fun adventure.

I love the Jean Talon market. Even in the winter, we can buy very good produce. It is an interesting place to stroll and take in the colors, the scents, the tastes.

Visiting from the US and wanted to stroll through. Produce looked very good. Stopped and had a crepe which was average. Enjoyed looking around and if I lived there I would buy goods from there often!

If you're looking for a place that offers a diverse array of home-grown produce, this is the place to go. In addition to a farmer's market, this place boasts some of the best cafes and restaurants this side of town. You will not be disappointed!

This huge market (smaller in the winter time) is a great adventure for anyone interested in food. In Spring, try the product of the different maple syrup vendors. Very good priced on maple syrup can be found here.

This market is a great place to feel the vibe of the city. There are so many wonderful food vendors to sample. Get a little something at multiple places and then sit at a table in the middle and watch the people go by.

Best farmer's market there is! Fabulously fresh fruits and vegetables, some vendors have fresh cut produce available for sampling. It not only sells produce but meats, fish, cheeses, spices, nuts (you have to try the little nook at the back that sells sweet and savory nuts!), soaps, sauces, maple syrup, flowers plus several areas to buy ready made food to...

You could spend hours here (we did) looking at all of the food, produce and merchandise. Vegetables and fruits were very fresh, even though most are out of season. I'm sure it is even better in the summer when more of the outside venues are open. Plan to have extra time if this is your last stop on the way... More

We have farmers markets in the states, but nothing quite like this place. In warm weather, it takes up approximately two-three square blocks with most of the area covered and indoors. The array of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, exotic items and just about everything else that can be consumed are displayed so beautifully. Hungry? Find something to eat and drink... 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.
