What restaurants will be at Jean-Talon Market?

At Jean-Talon, Bouffe-moi (vegetarian snacks on a stick), La Cabane à chichis (churros), and Robin de Bois (soups, sandwiches, plates and burgers) are already open and serving up food for takeout, according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.

The team of two sisters behind Bouffe-moi told MTL Blog that their mission is to serve "happy food," which they source through collaborations with local vendors.

"It's a bit like a street food kiosk," they said, "but with beautiful, quality products."

"For example, our cheese stick is made with 1608 cheese and breadcrumbs from recycled bread. We make poutine with a fresh cheese of the day that we get every morning. Everything is homemade!"

Visitors to Jean-Talon Market will also be able to try the Mediterranean appetizers, plates and salads from Les Filles Fattoush as of June 1.

The four spots are joining returning or permanent restaurants Aquamare, Balkani, La Boite aux huîtres, Brûlerie aux Quatre Vents, Crêperie du Marché, Dans la Côte, Gourmand d’ici, Mangue et melon, Mazorca MTL (with a new "chill zone"), Première Moisson, Sushi Shop and Winneburger.

The press release also hinted at two more new restaurants on the way.
