A beautiful building on the outside and inside there is are some shops selling clothing and souvenirs. Bought some maple syrup themed gifts (check out the scented candles, they are great). Cafe serves some great coffee as well.

The symbol of Montreal’s heyday! This market is a valuable part of the Old Montreal. Unfortunately for us, 50% of the shops were closed today 2 January 2018. It’s snowing out and still plenty of visitors are present. A shame I think. Nonetheless a great...More

It's your typical indoor market, souvenir shops, clothing shops and other knick knacks. It's a good place to go to get out of the cold.

Don’t think I like the markets here. Though it’s a nice building and all. Bit disappointed so I don’t think I’ll visit Atwater market.

This is a very pretty building with lots of historic value...but it is definitely full of tourist shops. It was less busy than the shops in other areas, so it’s a good place to pick up your ‘stereotypically Canadian’ gifts for acquaintances and coworkers.

It's way too expensive there. I though it was supposed to be local artisan and nice crafts but they sell mostly tourists' trinkets.

The market appears to cater exclusively to non-Canadian travelers, targeting foreigners who are looking to buy plaid, maple leaf decorated shirts, wood carvings, and other kitchy items. Dont expect anything unique or innovative that you can't find from any gift shop on Rue St Paul.

We recently attended the “Best in Photojournalism, World Press Photo Montreal 2017”, held at Marché Bonsecours, a heritage building in Montreal’s Old Port. The venue is spacious and well-lit for optimum effect. Lots of room to stand back and ponder the gripping nature of the...More
