Jean-Talon Market

Marche Jean-Talon is in Little Italy. It's an open-air market, open year round, that thrives in early summer as the weather warms and berries start to show up. There's an interesting mix of private farmers and commercial importers, so you might find pineapples and citrus fruits on a stand next to rhubbard and asparagus.  

The market opens at 7am everyday. The produce is immaculately lined up and displayed with a care that reveals the vendor's respect for their product. It's a beautiful market, reminiscent of La Boqueria in Barcelona. Here's a few seasonal stars:
