Montreal takes pride in its farmers and locally grown foods. Here is where you can pick some up:
Jean-Talon Market: 7070 avenue Henri-Julien (Corner of Henri-Julien and Jean-Talon).
Getting there: Take the 55 bus north, get off at Jean-Talon street, turn right and after a couple of blocks you can’t miss it. Or the metro, get off at Jean-Talon (orange line) and follow the signs to Jean-Talon street and the Jean-Talon Market.
**Note: The area around the Jean-Talon Market is also occupied by a bevy of global markets in case you are looking for more exotic or specific ingredient selections. Take a minute to look around and explore!
Atwater Market: 138 Atwater (Corner of Notre-Dame and Atwater).
Getting there: Take the metro to Lionel-Groulx metro (orange and green lines) and walk south on Atwater till you hit the market (a couple of blocks).
Maisonneuve Market: 4445 Ontario East at the corner of William David and Ontario (just a couple of blocks walk east of the academic center.)
