1. Jean-Talon Market
Open since 1933, North America’s largest open-air market is home to more than 150 vendors ranging from butchers and bakers to even lavender candlestick makers. Stalls overflow with bounty from Quebec farms, peaking late summer with sweet corn, blueberries, tomatoes and more. Come winter, specialty shops like Les Sucreries De L’Érable and Cochons Tout Ronds hold down the fort with maple treats, cured meats, and more—and don’t miss the flood of fresh cider from orchards in the fall beforehand. Plan to peruse with some of the city’s best coffee, and suck back a few freshly shucked oysters before leaving.
