  • The market is a must for a tourist like me. It provided a small glimpse where farm produce can be bought, especially the ones that are distinctly montreal!

  • A fantastic local market with great produce and lot of variety. A fun place to hang around for couple of hours to see the local vegetables and meat. Also a great place to shop for souvenirs. I liked the variety of lavender flowers and oils. Easily accessible by train.
  • What a beautiful market. It has something for everyone and I find it BOOMING every day and every season, regardless of how terrible the weather is outside. It's filled with everything fresh, beautiful and unique at times. Definitely love going there whenever I can. Best place for gardening season preparation and we find the quality plants.
