“Fresh, fresh, fresh!”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

Atwater Market in Montreal is an absolute paradise for the food lover. If you love to cook, this place is for you! If you love eat, all the more this place is for you! The historic Atwater Market offers the finest fresh ingredients for the critical and perfectionist cook... meat, vegetables, sea food, spices... Atwater has it. For the classic food lover, be enchanted with the old style bakery and coffee shop atmosphere. The fresh smell inside the market is just hypnotizing. It's a place where all you can think is enjoy food with all your senses. What makes Atwater market even more charming is the friendliness of the vendors... just like in the good old days. HIghly recommended. We'll surely go back when in Montreal!

“a market not to miss while visiting montreal un marche a ne pas manquer”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

le marche atwater est un attrait touristique,avec ses fleurs arbustes et ses fruits et legumes dehors l,ete.on y ouve egalement des fines herbes a planter ,de plantes de tomates
Bien sur a l.interieur c,est aussi interessant: une poisonnerie de haute qualite,des fleuristes.une pizzeria elle sont variees et delicieuses.3 fromageries,avec enormerment de choix,plusieurs bouchers au 2ieme etage avec de la viande de haute qualite.une animalerie,un endroit pour ahat de cafe en grains ou moulu ou le deguster. .une chocolatrie au centre et de la nourriture en vrac et une tres bonne patisseie"premier moisson"vous pouvez prendre un dejeuner et diner soit dans la plac e ou en bas de la patisserie.j.en oublie surement,
l,automne,c,est l halleween et venez voir leurs decorations.c,est aussi le temps des pommes,les choux,les tomates et piments en abondances,le ble d,inde.les jardiniers partent petit a petit ainsi que les derniers fleuristes a l,exterieur,a chaque saison c,est different,fin novembre on voit des sapins pour toutes les grandeurs et toute sorte de decorations de noel,l,hiver fait son chemin et puis vers avril on voit des vendeurs dehors pour paques et on installe les serres dehors,le plus beau moment c,est mai a sept oct,mais ed,autres temps c,est intressant aussi mais il n,y a plus ces belles plantes.fleurs qui degage une odeur agreable.
le seul inconvenient c,est un peu dispendieux,tout depond ce que vous achetez,c,est plus dispendieux que le marche jean talon

c,est un endroit a ne pas manquer!!!

“Very Interesting Market in Montreal”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

We visited to buy some fruits but we didnt expect we will also be buying our Christmas Tree from the outside market.

It has the famous Premiere Moisson bakery which has a wide selection of sweet pastries and breads. It also has the Les Douceurs Du Marche which contains almost all kinds of condiments and food items.It also has meat and cheese shops on the second floor.

A place to visit to enjoy fresh fruits and fresh flowers.

“Very small market, but lots to offer”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

If you're just looking for a place for some lunch or sampling - this may not be the place for you. Most of the meats are not prepared, and there aren't very many vendors offering sandwiches. But we were happy with our impromptu lunch of fresh cheese from one vendor and fresh bread from the large bakery (which also offered great desserts as well as coffee). We also had fun in one little shop in particular that offered a wide variety of dried fruits, nuts, grains, and all kinds of things covered in chocolate (sold by weight).

“Culinary Delight!”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

If you are a "foodie" you need to go here! There is everything from maple syrup, honey in assorted flavors (don't miss tasting the creamy one), fresh herbs, deliciously beautiful pastries, olive oils, and of course fresh produce that is worthy of photographing! When you taste it you will wonder why it is not imported around the world. So fresh and with such flavor! The berries are incredible and the tomatoes are really a fruit here! Do not miss going inside, it is air conditioned and a nice break to sit have a coffe and pastry. Just rest your feet for a while and people watch. There are breads and pastries, jams, candies, marinated meats, cheeses and more. You can find anything you need to cook with at this market. I found it a little more upscale than Jean Talon but both have their strong points. What a lovely experience! Easy to get to from the Metro Lionel Groulx.
