With the cooler weather arriving, fall is definitely here! You can feel it in the air and with so many upcoming fall activities it's no wonder this is the favourite time of year for countless Montrealers.
There is so much to do in Montreal: from apple picking, drinking cider, and let's not forget baking delicious treats like cinnamon buns or pumpkin pie!
The best ingredients you can get are local and at the various farmers markets located throughout the city. Also, there's no better way to spend a fall day than at the market.
There are so many markets that we decided to make a fun map displaying them all!
Here's a list of all the farmers markets in Montreal:
1. Jean Talon Market
This market is famous – with Montrealers and tourists flooding to this location in Little Italy. Known for the local produce, along with various shopkeepers (butchers, bakers, grocers) and cute little restaurants. Whether you're looking for local ingredients or locally made food- this market offers something for everyone. Harvest season is definitely the best time of year to take advantage of Jean-Talon!
