Top ways to experience Jean-Talon Market
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

In the spirit of visiting Montreal, we did the Montrealer experience. The market offers fresh vegetables, meats, and cafes to stop and smell the flowers. A truly authentic Montreal experiece.

The Market was an easy metro ride from downtown. We arrived just as it opened on a weekday morning. I would suggest going after 8 in order to enjoy mingling with the crowds, admiring the gorgeous produce and grabbing a cappucino or espresso and pastry. We sat outside Au Pain Dore, on the northern side (?) of the market and had a great croissant and an apple pastry--very hard choice as everything looked delicious. On our way out we grabbed some local apples for snacking later. Would recommend the Lobo apples--similar to a McIntosh but sweeter.

One of the largest indoor/outdoor markets in North America I am told. A great place to shop and dine.

Great, colourful and clean market. We went during the week so it wasn’t busy. Lots of colour. Don’t miss the bakeries and delis outside the market.

It is a good market for those who prefer to eat only local and healthy food. Most of the food available here is organic and local.

Wandering around and seeing the fresh produce and some incredible vendors was a treat to witness in these times. They take sanitation seriously, requiring hand sanitizer upon arrival. Sad that there is no magic of sampling products like previous times, though that's no fault of the market itself.

Even without samples, get a bottle or two of the ice cider. Crisp, refreshing, and locally produced.
