The market is the place to buy produce from nearby farms or artisans, and where visitors get to see the culture of the city firsthand. Montreal’s markets have been standing for generations and the merchants have passed down their expertise. With four markets open year round and others opening seasonally, there is always a place to go and something new to see.
Atwater features Art Deco style architecture. Indoors is a wide range of produce, but what makes this particular market stand out above the rest is its specialized butchers and delicatessens, who have passed their expertise down from generation to generation.
Located in Montreal’s Little Italy, this particular market is known for being highly culturally diverse, offering products and produce from many different places. When visiting this market, keep an eye out for their local fruit and vegetable stands.

A small local market that opened in 1983 as a small shack for maple syrup and flowers, this market has grown and its personality changes with each season. It offers fresh produce, snacks and Christmas trees during the holiday season.
