Montréal's Jean Talon Market
Little Italy was our last stop in Montréal. I wanted to go back to the famous marché Jean Talon, a farmer’s market located in this area.
The open air market is occupied by about 300 vendors, selling fruits, vegetables, cheese, meat etc. There are many other food businesses in the area, including bakeries, fish and meat stores and restaurants.
On a sunny Sunday morning, the place was packed with local families shopping. I couldn’t help noticing how tidy and almost sterile was the market. Compared to most food markets we’ve been to in Latin America or China, this one was extremely clean… almost too clean!
Yet, the colorful stalls and fresh products were worth a visit.
