Montreal’s best and biggest market, open year round, is Marché Jean-Talon.

Locally grown garlic. This stall ruined cheap supermarket garlic for us.

Great big batches of leek + The Silver Spoon = perfect leek soup.

Artichokes. Tomatoes. Word.

Produce galore: Cabbage, Bell Peppers, Parsnips

Quebec grown apples and cranberries.

The farm eggs we should be buying more often.

Marche Jean-Talon is Montreal’s mothership market. For food tourists, it is a destination not to be missed. Like I said, it’s open year round but with the first bit of snow that just hit, it will go into semi-hibernation. Most of the good local stalls will take the winter off, but there’s still some great food to be had indoors. Not only does Montreal have a few year round markets, but there is also a mini-market open 24-hours during the summer at Metro-Montreal.

There are, count them below, 13 markets in Montreal.
