Great place to eat some fresh fruit or grab another snack like crepes, sandwiches, beverages, or macaroons. You can also buy flowers or other items. It is sheltered so a nice place to visit if it is raining.

I had a wonderful visit to Jean Talon Market. It was autumn and colors were amazing. I bought everything for an entertaining dinner; even flowers.

Larger than Atwater market and has lots of eateries and grocery stores around. Great place to shop and buy produce.

Even in the cold of winter, which it was for this, our 3rd visit, the market is a great place to experience real Montreal. It's about a 3 block walk from the nearest metro station (Jean-Talon). If you like vibrant colors you'll be very satisfied here. Beautiful food and flowers. There are plenty of places to grab a bite to... More

After reading the reviews in trip advisor, we wanted to check it out le marche Jean-Talon around Christmas. After several tastings, we bought great pear, raspberry and apple brandies similar to calvados which I love. The alcohol level was much lower though...Also here, you can find local maple syrups, great selections of cheeses, jams, fruits and other produce. Recommended !

We had not visited in the winter, and found this place equally if not more pleasant than the summer, with less tourists and the same great food stalls and restaurants. As it is well enclosed, full protection from the foul wether

Our most recent visit to the Marché Jean-Talon was the second weekend of September: Harvest time! The market was hopping. Fresh produce to the left of us, fresh produce to the right of us! Lots of locals were visiting and stocking up. Noticed a lot of tourist (identifiable by their guidebooks) looking around and taking pictures.

I visited and shopped at the Jean Talon market today and was very impressed! Awesome selection of fruits, veggies, nuts, cheese and so much more. Take your time, peruse, sample and relish the choices! The market is clean, well organized and features an amazing array of culinary ingredients for every chef! A must visit !!

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.
