Perfect for your regular produce needs or for special novelty products! They have a great range of vendors from the everyday to the gift worthy, and everything I've bought has been high quality. A fun place to just wander for a bit too!

Located a few blocks from the Jean Talon metro stop, this farmer's market was worth a visit if you've run out of things to see or interested in fresh fruits and vegetables. They have a few booths with hot food to order such as crepes, sausages, or poutine. Mainly a farmer's market though with veggies and fruits. We walked from... More

This is no exception. Not that big but good selection of quality goods. I'm sure it is busier on Saturday with more vendors, but mid week, very pleasant without the crowds. Reminded me of markets in France, with several permanent shops surrounding the actual market. These were wonderful....especially the cheese! Beautiful displays of fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, a wonderful... More

For me, a stop in Montreal isn't a stop worth having unless you've stopped at Jean-Talon Market. It has got some of the best food that you can eat anywhere in Canada. From the cheese, to the oysters, to the empanada, and the natas, this is no longer just a matter of of being a place for locals to do... More

It is always fun to get a sense of a place by the type of farmer's/indoor market they have. With convenient, affordable parking underneath, we enjoyed walking around Jean-Talon easily. More than just fruits/vegetables, there were several butchers, seafood vendors and prepared food locations. I wouldn't expect to spend all day there, but we had a nice hour visit.

Jean Talon is a very active local market with good parking. There is a nice mix of many different vendors with fresh produce, bakeries, restaurants et al. Experience shopping as a local.

This is the place to go to if one wants to shop for locally grown fruits and vegetables. Everything fresh, stalls are neat and tidy and the vendors are friendly. Also there are stalls for honey, maple syrup and pastries. You will be rubbing shoulders with locals and not hordes of tourists. It's only a 15 minutes drive from downtown... More

Now that summer is around the corner, Jean-Talon Market is the ideal place to do your grocery shopping. We always enjoy talking to local growers and buying locally grown food. The market is always busier on weekend but that's the fun part of it! They also have some great restaurant in and around the permises. We try to go the... More

Very interesting place. Parking is very cheap which is good. The pastries were very good as there was a Turkish desert stand. Great fruit selection. Large meat/deli selection. The seafood stands were a different story as there were a few unsavory and unethical practices going on with some of the live seafood in the back. Probably won't go back again... 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.
