Description
Marché Jean-Talon is a beautiful outdoor market in Montreal, Canada. It is open year round, even during winter, where the vendors and their goods are protected by temporary walls. Food enthusiasts ... Read more
will love the market because of the wonderful selection. Among the delicacies offered are sushi chocolates, cheeses, maple syrup makers, bakeries, wine shops, just to name a few. Even though it is a quaint spot for tourists, Marché Jean-Talon is also popular among locals for its reasonable pricing. The market is easy to get to, as it is situated between the Jean-Talon and De Castelnau metro stations, which makes it a prime location to take a break for a bite to eat.

Puts the Union Square Greenmarket in NYC to shame. Huge with tons of vendors of all sorts. Les Jardins Sauvages even has a booth for their foraged goods. Great place to taste and buy ice wines and ciders, too.

This was one of the must see places to go for first timers. This huge covered market is Montreal's most diverse selection of produce, lots of shops, stalls and places to eat. I was not so impressed.
I've been to Christmas Markets in Europe, Granville Market in Vancouver, The Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia which had way more produce, restaurants and shops.

So I was a little underwhelmed. Glad I got to see it though for the experience. I'm sure the locals that live close by love to shop there. Also seemed a little pricey. Nice and clean though. Three stars!

This large outdoor market has been around for decades. Located on Jean-Talon boulevard near Little Italy, this is where you go in the city for your groceries. They have a mushroom kiosk, organic food and even a little spice store where you can find almost every spice known to humankind. Buy local from Quebec farmers and try some "tire d'erable" in the winter months!

Wonderful market off the beaten path. If you visit, get oysters, charcuterie, the Portuguese desert pies, and the Belgian waffles.

A great farmers market in Montreal. More very good shops in the streets all around the market.

I went here in December, but even in the off season this market was impressive! Tons of locals selling handmade goods as well as a produce market inside. Apparently in the warmer months the entire space opens and over 300 vendors are inside.

one of the many reasons I wish I lived in Montreal. such a wonderful selection of local offerings. the first thing I do before strolling the aisles is get a freshly squeezed juice at Mangue et Melon (le citrus intense is my favorite). it's a great place to grab a quick lunch as well, especially if you're in a large group and can't reach a consensus on what to eat.

The nicest farmer's market I have seen in North America. Work up an appetite looking at the gorgeous fruits and vegetables and then grab a bite at one of the many food stalls.

I want to touch & taste everything!! The colors and variety if fruits and veg is astounding - a visual feast, if you will. Lovely place to still around and taste, find local gourmet treats, or pick up supplies for a picnic.

Coming from the US, Montreal is like a little slice of Europe that's just a train ride away. One of the reasons are the great city markets. Jean-Talon I think is the biggest, and just packed with produce and all kinds of other neat foodstuffs. It's also in a major immigrant area, so you can get things like spicy merguez sandwiches, as well as all your typical French-ish and maple-syrup-flavored Canadian things.

If I lived in Montreal, I would be here every weekend. Everything is so fresh and well presented. Also, more importantly, inexpensive! It's one of the best markets I have seen.

I love farmer's market. There are quite a few throughout Montreal, but the Marche Jean-Talon is one of the best known. The sizable market is next to the Jean-Talon metro station, there are aisles and aisles of fresh, delicious fruits and veggies, organized and extremely clean. I'm a huge lover of fruits and this place is heavenly. The fruits here are just beautiful, the baskets of strawberries and oranges are ample and perfect, there are not defective ones. Everything has great quality and is cheap!
