THe Bonsecours Market used to be an actual marketplace. Today it is a small 'mall' of sorts that houses boutiques of different artisans; leather, pottery, glass. LImited choice but worth a quick stroll through if you are in Old Montreal. A block away stop by the little church Notre Dame de Bonsecours that centuries ago welcomed sailors who were in port. Both the market and the church are on a very interesting, cobblestone street with lovely art galleries on it. Worth the stop in.

Bonsecours Market in Old Montreal is a truly distinctive place to shop for fashion, home and sourvenir items. In particular, I loved several of the shops which carried clothing and other items created by Montreal and Quebec designers. It is well worth a stop on a tour through Old Montreal.

If you are walking around in Old Montreal, it is worth a walk through Marche Bonsecours. Quite a few restaurants there also!

Though this site is beautiful to visit and check out the old architecture, this market place was where Montrealers came to get fresh produce directly from the farmers. Up to the 1950's you could see horse drawn wagons and trucks backed up to the sidewalks where farmers would sell there goods.

While being in the old Montréal it is nice to see the Market . Personnaly I find it a little bite too commercial inside but as an historical monument you must see it.
