It is a European farm market with a few permanent stands for fully-cooked food or take out. Get there early to avoid the crowds and bring your appetite, as there is plenty to try and taste, inlcuding freebies. The best way to get there is on the orange metro line. Get off at the Jean-Talon metro station, then walk two or so blocks to the west and look for signs that say 'Marché Jean-Talon'. Or just follow the locals with their empty pull carts. Bring cash, as most vendors don't accept credit cards, unless it's a permanent store front.

Here  is a link to a blog featuring a map of the market (permanent stalls in winter time) and links to all the merchants' websites as well. In the market, Marché des Saveurs features a wide assortment of Québec products, both sweet and salty; it is identified under the "B" in a yellow square on the map.

In the vicinity of the Jean-Talon market, you may find fine groceries at  Milano, a well-stock and popular Italian grocery store at  6862 St-Laurent blvd. A few doors from it, on the same side of the street to the south, Anatole is a store specializing in spices ("600 and more!"), which are sold in bulk.
