The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.

I came from Los Angeles to buy Gilbert Jodoin maple syrup.
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Yes you come here for all the produce and meats and bakeries. All wonderful quality. But you need to taste the special maple syrup. Made by third generation Gilbert Jodoin. His wife and son, Mathew also work here. Three really lovely people. Buy it when it is in season. You can get different levels of intensity.
I prefer the lighter version.
Gilbert also sells produce from his farms.
When you go there tell them George from Los Angeles through Trip Advisor got you to go.
I wish that the markets in Los Angeles had as good quality produce as Atwater market has. There is great boulangerie upstairs. They have great sandwiches and breads and pastries. AND more. Really good quality.
You will be tempted to buy everything you see.

Nice, but not what was expected.
Dec. 2020
Online it showed a lot more happening for the Christmas Market 2020 as part of the Atwater Market, was pretty deceptive in size and I suppose we expected more.. we waited 30-40 mins outside for a 5 minute experience. Hopefully next year the line up makes it worth the while.

HOW STUPID CAN THE ATWATER MARKET MANAGEMENT BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dec. 2020
I went shopping at Atwater Market this morning (Friday 4th December). At the main entrance there was a big arrow stating ENTRANCE-------------->. I followed to the side
and saw another big arrow stating ENTRANCE ------------------> But there were long chains blocking the entrance. I saw another sign stating ENTRANCE---------------->
I finally entered the building at its opposite Entrance. I bought a salad and COULD NOT GO INTO THE MAIN BUILDING. S staff member told me to GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM. If I did I COULD NOT SHOP IN THE MAIN BUILDING. So I left with a small packet of Beet Salad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Usual, weekly shopping tour
Mar. 2020 • Solo
Been going there for 30 years of which 20 have been to the same butcher, same flower shop, same veggie stand in the summer and same place where I get my wonderful honey.
People say “It’s too expensive” that might be right, but you sure as hell know what your getting is going to be good and fresh and like you want it. If it’s not, most often, the next order is on the store. Can’t beat that kind of service.
I’d rather pay more and be assured I get the best

Nice place to get fresh groceries
Feb. 2020 • Solo
I visited the market for the first time. From metro station Lionel Groulx it is only a 5 minute walk.
It is all indoors. You can spend approx. 30-45 mins here. There are some nice places where you can get coffee. Mainly you can shop here for fruit, vegetables, meat & cheese. There is also a grwat bakery with choclates, pastries & bread.

Fun even in Winter!
Jan. 2020 • Friends
I love coming here to start a Montreal visit to stick up on treats for the hotel room (cheese, pate, cashews, dried fruit, patisserie and bread). Sampling is customary. I tried dried cantaloupe for the first time and fell in love with it and the sweet man selling it! The vendors are delightful; the food is beautifully displayed by individual and in the winter, parking was easy and it was very satisfying experience. Highly recommend.

Very good market and beautiful Art Deco building
Sep. 2019
A visit at Atwater Market is maybe not really a must when visiting Montreal but if you go there, then you'll find a very atmospheric market. The outdoor stalls are around a beautiful Art Deco building with a clock tower (also a nice photo spot). You can find local products and there’s also good street-food for affordable prices. Coming from downtown you can either take the Metro to Lionel-Groulx or stroll along Lachine Canal, which is also a very nice walk.
