I loved every minute of my visit to the market and bought so many fresh fruits and vegetables that were simply delicious! I loved that we were able to taste some fruits and vegetables before purchasing them! I also discovered a delicious gluten free Crêperie called Crêperie du marché. We went on a Saturday morning, grabbed breakfast at the crêperie... More

I was not going to visit this market in Montreal but decided to give it a try. I loved everything about this market! Here you will find good local food, fresh fruit and tasty pastries and cakes. Try the smoked meat sandwich, the maple pastéis de nata and buy some berries (strawberries, raspberries) which are produced locally and are very... More

You should go for breakfast at jean talon. I say that because you can eat loads of fresh fruit and veggie samples. They're soooo good and fresh (especially all the local stuff). And in the winter, this guy makes these delicious maple syrup on ice Popsicles by trickling the hot maple syrup on crushed ice. Nom

Visited the Jean Talon Market and went to the back area. Noticed a cafe which is filled with locals having breakfast. Upon checking the Trip Advisor, can not find this cafe on the listing. As travel guides go on eating where the locals eat, decided to have a stop over to have a late breakfast. We ordered the grilled chicken... More

This is an unpretentious food market, what you see is what you get. Chances are whether you are a foodie or not you will get something you would like to eat, right there! Any seasonal fruit you can think of, the good thing is most venders have fresh cutted dishes of their fruit for sampling. They take pride on their... More

We decided to visit this local market to experience some local flavor. What a wonderful array of produce! Super fresh and beautiful! Lots of vendors here with fruits and vegetables, plants, herbs, soaps, olives, pastries, and more. We had lunch from a small vendor that sold quiche...delicious!! Dessert was from the Greek/Turkish vendor selling delicious pastries. Glad we got to... More

There are a number of specialty shops (meat, cheese and bakeries) that are worth visiting. We ate delicious crepes for a late breakfast. However, most of the produce is not grown by the vendors. The market is similar to a large grocery store, so if you're looking for locally grown produce, there's not much of it here.

What a great fresh produce market! And what a great area Little Italy is. If you want a small time feel in a big town go here and enjoy the vibe.

Definitely worth the trip. Easy access from the Orange Line. We were staying in an apartment so we bought fresh fruits and berries for breakfast. Yum! I believe the schedule varies with the time and day of the week. By the time we got there meats and seafood looked closed. A Foodie must!

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.
