Time Out Market, the world’s first editorially curated food and cultural market reopened in Montreal July 2, 2021. Time Out Market Montréal, the city's premier culinary and cultural hub located in the heart of downtown Montreal (Centre Eaton de Montréal, 705 Saint-Catherine St. West) is proud to showcase delicious local cuisine, craft cocktails and cultural experiences for adults, kids and families alike. 

“We have worked closely with renowned local chefs and restaurateurs as well as the artists community to capture and celebrate the soul of Montreal,” said Didier Souillat, CEO Time Out Market, “We are pleased to offer guests an immersive and engaging way to enjoy the authentic flavor and diversity of the city.”

The 40,000 square feet Market is bringing back excitement and fun with 10 eateries, a pop-up kitchen, three bars, a cooking academy and a retail shop. As the centrepiece of Centre Eaton de Montréal—a major downtown destination owned and managed by global real estate leader Ivanhoé Cambridge—Time Out Market offers guests the very best of the city under one roof, creating a dynamic destination that embodies the vibrancy of Montreal. 

Featuring local cultural entertainment and a lineup of star-studded Montreal chefs and restaurateurs, the Market will continue to add additional concepts in the coming months. Time Out Market Montréal’s new and returning culinary favourites include:


  • Le Blossom, A favourite from Montreal’s Village neighbourhood, Le Blossom has taken over the Market’s demonstration kitchen to offer a greatest-hits selection of Japanese plates from their menu. Dishes featured on their menu include; pressed and torched oshizushi, fresh sashimi and savoury maki, loaded-to-burst poke bowls and Japanese yatai-style street food. .
  • Le Taj, One of the city’s premiere destinations for Indian fine dining, this institution has joined Time Out Market to serve dishes such as airy naan swiped with butter with irresistibly creamy butter chicken, a beloved tandoor-roasted kebab, and Delhi-style biryani. An essential restaurant for a local experience, each taste here, delivers mouthwatering diasporic takes on Northern Indian cuisine.
  • P’tit Dip, There's nothing p'tit about chef Aaron Langille's new concept P'tit Dip found exclusively at Time Out Market. Famed for his adventurous approach to food and flavour at his restaurant Le Diplomate, Langille channels his free-spirited approach to food into a waffle and crepe concept that is as delectable as it is unexpected.
  • Campo, Since 2016, the Ferreira family’s Portuguese chicken joint, Campo, has been a Montreal favourite. A fine-tuned churrascaria consistently delivering quality time and time again, their local sourcing of grain-fed birds that are marinated for 24 hours in a piri-piri sauce firmly sets a bar for casual dining downtown - as well as one of the city’s best Portuguese chicken destinations.
  • Casa Kaizen, Chef Christian Ventura is a pioneer of plant-based cuisine in Montreal since he first turned heads with his first restaurant Sushi Momo. At Casa Kaizen,  menu favourites like nori tostada with konjac-based ‘no-tuna’, crispy flautas served with black garlic cashew cream, and tacos made with ‘calamari’ mushrooms are all directly available. Explore Ventura’s  game-changing vegan eats — they're sure to turn any skeptic into a believer.

  • Paul Toussaint, Dedicated to Haiti’s rich culinary and cultural heritage and his Carribean fare, Chef Paul Toussaint has returned to the Market to continue serving hearty and spicy Haitian cuisine.
