Jean-Talon Market

Attraction | "Jean Talon Marche"

Quote:
The Jean Talon Market is part of Montreal's Little Italy. It is a wonderful street market (of which Montreal has many) that is open throughout the year. It is easily accesible by the metro system.

You can buy fresh produce in the summer and fall season directly from local farmers in the outdoor market, and in the winter the indoor market also has produce available. Also available are a variety of freshly baked goods and specialty items.

Cafes and good restaurants are also in the vicinity of this market.
