Make sure to walk through the Jean-Talon Market in its entirety before making your purchases if you want to get the best price on your produce. Costs vary from vendor to vendor.

If you are the type of person who likes wandering among the vegetables, and their vendors, the Market is a great place to spend a day, or plan a meal. Cheese shops, organic meats and vegetable and fruit vendors crowd into their stalls in this market that on the weekends is overflowing with not only the inhabitants of the nearby Little Italy, but people from all over the Island of Montreal. Parking is available under the market, bicycle racks are conveniently placed around most entrances, and it is less than a five minute walk from Jean-Talon metro.
