The first place to visit in Montreal is only about 5 minutes (4 blocks) from the Jean-Talon metro stop in Little Italy - The Marche Jean-Talon. It is bordered by 4 city blocks: Rue Jean-Talon, Ave Henri-Julien, Ave Mozart and Ave Casgrain. This outdoor market, surrounded by permanent stores, is best in the warmer months, when flowers, plants, fruits, vegetables and food vendors are most numerous. Other than the selection of boothes specializing in fish, meats, local products, our favorite spots: Premiere Moisson, Sushi Shop and La Fromagerie Hamel. Other food-related shops: a bookstore, gift shop, kitchen store, and Quebecois products store. Whether snacking & sampling as you make your way around the market, or buying food to prepare & enjoy back in your own kitchen, you can't go wrong here. [ we like to stay at the Youth Hostel, where there is a fully-equipped kitchen] Ammenities include: underground parking, clean bathrooms, nearby shops, restaurants and the attractions of Little Italy. We go to the market every visit to Montreal - January or June, it's super.
