With Time Out Market Montréal's reopening including an new selection of restaurants and chefs joining a returning list of culinary all-stars, it's easy to forget that this place isn't just about the food: Events are starting up, with live music during the weekends and special pop-ups like a revived exhibition space for emerging artists. You can expect DJ sets during every Friday and Saturday 5 à 7 that feed on as many caliente vibes of Brazilian beats as they do on early Hip Hop and RnB classics styles, while hot jazz and fun folksy vibes show up from noon to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Scroll down to see everything we've got planned for this month.
