Taste your way through Jean-Talon Market and beyond on a Montreal food tour that explores the up-and-coming Mile-Ex neighborhood. You visit six eateries for a fresh, insider look at the Montreal food scene, tasting flavors ranging from Salvadorean to farm-to-table cuisine and learning about Montreal’s vibrant communities along the way.
What to Expect

Meet your guide near Montreal’s biggest market. With your group, step into Jean-Talon’s maze of local produce, maple syrup, and specialty foods. The guide chooses (at least) six stops for tastings, while introducing the diverse traditions of Montreal food.

After exploring Jean-Talon Market, continue through the city streets, pausing for a tasting at a hole-in-the-wall Salvadorian place. Here and throughout the tour, take advantage of the small group format to ask questions about Montreal culture and food, getting tips on where to eat, drink, and explore in the city.

Following the tasting, keep walking through hip Mile-Ex, where startup craft breweries share space with longtime neighborhood favorites.

Finish the tour at the edge of Little Italy, the place where in-the-know locals head for the city's best pasta and Latin American shops.

Beyond the Market walking food tour

What a fun exciting tour in Montreal. If we would have been on our own, we would have never experienced the fun time we had with this tour and with Leslie as our guide. We did have a fun group, but Leslie knew her stuff!...More

This trip should be the top of your Montreal travel plans.

This tour was the highlight of our Montreal stay, I think. Anne-Marie was excellent and took us to seven different stops to sample food, drink, and ice cream! The best was the Monday food market. Don't miss this part of Montreal, a place we would...More
