This city boasts several farmers markets but Montreal’s Jean-Talon Market is a couple of blocks from my place and holds a special place in my heart. It is my corner store whether I need something as simple as milk and bread or more specialized ingredients. In the summer, I often go there for a daily walk among the colourful aisles of seasonal and local Quebec fruits and vegetables. It is often the inspiration behind simple lunches or more sophisticated dinners. From pumpkins and apples in the fall to Christmas trees during the holiday season to flowers and herbs in the spring and fresh vegetables in the summer, it’s one of my favourite places in Montreal. You can get great artisanal bread, amazing spices and olive oils, baked goods, luscious cheeses, fresh fish and seafood, beautiful meat, sausages and charcuteries, fine chocolate, coffee and wine, among other goodies. The fall is my favourite season at the market. Harvest in all its glorious colours, smells and textures is in full swing right now and I fall (pun intended) under its charm every time I visit. I thought I’d share a few photos of the Jean-Talon Market in the hopes they will inspire you to visit and fall in love with this very special place. And don’t forget to also check my article on what’s new this season at the Jean-Talon Market.
I spend a lot of time at the market so follow me on Instagram for more seasonal photos of the Jean-Talon Market.
