I love this market! Back when I lived in Montreal, I would take an empty backpack, take the metro all the way from Guy-Concordia all the way to Jean Talon (40 mins?) and just totally stuff my bag with as much as I could carry home. Jean Talon is filled primarily with fruits and veggie stands in the middle, but all around are various vendors selling snacks, sausages and more. Just outside the market were Vietnamese restaurants and on the other side, an Italian neighbourhood which had the BEST Italian pastries. Ok, I mean I'd stuff my bag with veggies and then still manage to lug a full-sized almond cake home. The balancing act was worth it, and even just for a nice sunday stroll. :)

This market is fabulous to vistit anytime of year. There is fresh seasonal products from local area farmers all year. The berries, peppers, corn and potatoes are all delicious. You can also get plants. There are butchers, bakeries, fromageries and seafood stores surrounding the market. There are also a lot of great options for lunch ranging from street meat to crepes to sit down restaurants where you can waste away the afternoon enjoying the atmosphere. A must see in the heart of montreal!

L'un des quatre grands marchés de Montréal. Simple d'accès et ouvert toute la journée de 9h à 21h toute la semaine sauf le week end. Les producteurs viennent directement vendrent leurs produits, ce qui crée une meilleur relation entre les gens que par l'intermédiaire d'un supermarché où les caissiers vous disent bonjour du bout des lèvres. Bref, une étape indispensable à une vie économique dans la multi-capitale du Québec.
