The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
How to get there
  • Lionel-Groulx • 6 min walk

We had a great afternoon at the market, although we probably should have arrive earlier when more stalls were open. Still we were able to shop for dinner plus a lot of stuff for our apartment. Very pleasant merchants throughout.

Nice market, but I personally preferred Jean Talon. This one didn't have as many options to eat for lunch, most of it was grocery items, raw meats, and produce. I did buy some chocolates, olives, cured meats, and cheese to bring home to make a charcuterie board.

Summer markets are great opportunity to see what the area has to offer, there is plenty of see and eat at the Atwater market. This market is a short walk from the Metro station, there is something for everyone from cook to order meals, the cheeses, chocolate and the normal farmer market offerings. We spent a good 2 hours on a sunny morning. Great way to start a day in Montreal.

Fun market to walk through. The fruits and veggies were huge. There are interesting little shops along the sides and a great food court area at the end- all fresh foods.

I felt this market was best suited for the person who wants to cook at home but doesn't want to prep. They had many prepared meats, fish and pies that all looked very easy to take home and bake or BBQ. They have some specialty shops that sell a wide variety of cheeses, pastries, honey, alcohol, crackers, meats and fresh produce. You can also order food to eat here but it is noisier than Jean Talon market.

The market is near Lionel-Groulx Station and a canal park. You could get food at the market and picnic by the extensive canal which offers lots of shaded areas.

Went on a rainy day, many food stalls closed, and few interesting stands. Clearly not the best time of the year to go there.

I did find one interesting maple syrup stand where I bought some cans and maple butter for a competitive price.

We had decided to include this on our itinerary to visit whilst we were in Montreal. We had already visited the Jean Talon market expecting the markets to be same as markets in England which comprise food, hardware and local artefacts. Unfortunately, all that was on sale was food (mainly fruit and vegetables) but Atwater Market is even smaller than the Jean Talon market. We travelled there using the Metro (brilliant by the way) but there was no point in buying anything as we were on holiday staying in a hotel so we only stayed in the market for about 10 minutes and then walked around the area for about half an hour as there didn't seem to be much to see there. The market would be brilliant for holidaymakers who are self-catering in close proximity but with hindsight, we shouldn't have bothered to make the trip.

The Atwater Market sometimes plays second fiddle to Jean Talon Market but it is basically the same market with a wide variety of fresh vegetables, flowers and specialty stores selling everything from Honey to Seafood. Going early in the season as I did there wasn’t as much selection of vegetables, but that will come in time. Huge amounts of flowers are for sale and overall is a fantastic market to visit
