Lots of meats and cheese

If I lived in Montreal I would want to live near this market. Looks like a wonderful place to shop with a huge liquor store across the street.

Too much hype, especially for Christmas. It wasn't horrible and it did have some character just overall not what I was expecting. Lots of little tents with a variety of items.

I saw the reviews for this market and was expecting a spectacle. In reality it isn't very large, nor are there terribly interesting stalls. Yes it is a good place to purchase produce, but it isn't worth the walk from the centre if you're sightseeing.

This is my fav market place , summer or winter for fresh groceries shopping . Plants or Christmas tree shopping. After a nice jog by the canal Lachine it's the best place to purchase everything for a nice dinner at home. I always buy my Christmas, NYE or any special occasion items here as well.

We have visited Atwater Market with my family in June. You have a choice of many products, esp. fruits and vegetables, but you can also get great milk products. Close to the market are picnic tables with chess tables, really nice place to go around and have lunch afterwards.

I like this market because it's located close to where I stayed. But it's most of the goods are either priced the same as other retail market or higher. Without much organic choice I can find. I ended up stoping by the super-C next door. Prepare to withdraw some cash for donating the red cross volunteers if you don't mind... More

I like it better than Jean-Talon Market. It's a nice and clean market. Although it smaller than Jean-Talon, but it's good enough, very relaxing and very clean, too. You can go there on foot and not far away from Metro, Lionel-Groulx station.

Went on a cold Halloween day with lots of pumpkins for sale. Had a walk round and stopped for coffee on the upper level. Feels like a very local market. Great chocolatier on the lower level.

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
