We took the Metro from the old city to the Market on a Sunday morning. It was a beautiful morning. The market was full of great booths with a lot of fun items to chose from. We found fresh Rhubarb and some great inexpensive gifts to take home. It took as about one and a half hours to do the... More

This market can by reached by Metro - takes a while to get to. Once off Metro there are no signs which way to go - you have to ask people for directions and hope they are not tourists like us. Many fruit and vegetable stands offering similar products - surprisingly the peaches and nectarines were from the US and... More

Had breakfast of bread and some fresh produce, two coffees and an oyster. So much fun, great chance to get some special souvenirs that won't clutter a bookshelf. Friendly people, beautiful produce, seafood, charcuterie.

Jean Talon Market is simply amazing, with an astounding and beautiful array of fresh vegetables, breads, meats, cheeses, seafood, sweets, from dozens of vendors. You could spend a couple hours there just walking around and soaking it all in. And the prices are quite reasonable as well. There are plenty of bistros and shops surrounding the market as well, so... More

My husband and I loved this place so much during our four days in Montreal that we went twice. The market has a huge selection of fruits and vegetables. There are also several vendors selling soaps, spices, cheese, charcuterie, breads and pastries, and prepared foods. This is a must see during a stay in the city.

Like many towns a market is the place to mix with locals. Wonderful local products from the green grocers. This market is the place for cheese and baked goods that are ideal for a picnic, or in our case, for a road trip. I must also mention--really clean restrooms.

We took the Metro there on Sun. and it was well worth the trip. We had lunch at the crepe restaurant which was delicious . Hada ham and cheese wholewheat crepe. It was reasonably priced, the service was fast, and there were cute places to sit. We returned the next day with our car. Parking underneath was reasonable and easy... More

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
