This place is phenomenal for fresh meats, fish, cheeses, flowers, produce… It has it all! My only wish was that I could pack everything up and take it with me. It made for excellent window shopping.

One of the best places to shop for produce. I get to talk to the producers and it is filled with flowers and garden sets at this time a year. Great place to meet locals.

I have been to numerous markets throughout the years, and I must say this is nothing too exciting... Atwater is a million times better even though it is a lot smaller.. Jean Talon is huge but just nothing exciting or extravagant about it.. Parking is easy and cheap .. lots of places to choose from meats to fruit to veggies..... More

I was raised three streets from the market back in early 1960's. And even now I bring my family shopping for fresh fruits and veggies. Excellent varieties and FRESH foods.

Visited on a rainy Monday but it did not matter as most of the market is covered and there is an underground parking which only cost $1.50 for one hour. They have a wonderful variety of plants, potted herbs, vegetables and fruits. There is also a butcher shop and all kinds of other local products for sale. Bought this beautiful... More

Our first visit to the market. Easy walk from the subway. Bought a purple pepper plant for the garden, chocolate, specialty cheese, sourdough bread and fruit for a picnic. Learned that we could buy from either the local wine shop or from the liquor store around the corner and sip wine while walking through the market! Chose to sit down... More

Loved it because it had everything I needed. Food and vegetables, fruit from all over the world. Being from Montreal I love going there because of all the culture and variety the market offers to everyone.

First visit to Jean Talon Market. It's spring so not all vendors are there. Nevertheless, we bought fabulous sausages and homemade soup along with vegetable to have in our Airbnb apartment. So accessible by metro and there are lots of stores (Mexican, Thai, Chinese) that we bought more things at. Am sure this place must be hopping in the summer.

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.
