Bursting with colours, flavours and freshness, the Atwater Market is a popular hub for an array of local and hard-to-find gourmet products. Buttery croissants, ripe cheeses, farm-picked produce, fine meat cuts, deli specialties and fish are just some of the fare available at this four-season market.
Housed in an Art Deco-style building that is considered one of Montréal’s architectural gems, the market has been in operation since 1933.
The outdoor season, which starts with the spring thaw, is especially vibrant: stands overflow with beautiful flowers, savoury herbs and juicy vegetables—a veritable feast for the senses!
You can pick up delicious items to prepare yourself, or its Pôles des saveurs restaurant area offers plenty of to-go choices ranging from Vietnamese to Reunion Island specialties, barbecue, tapas and others. In summer, you can also cool off with a delicious ice cream treat or beverage at the nearby picnic tables.
The market moves to a seasonal beat, featuring culinary activities and events such as food and craft beer tastings, special cocktail hours and more.
Another bonus? It borders the Lachine Canal so you can pick up some tasty food and rent a bike or go for a walk and enjoy your bounty outdoors.
