Not far from the church is one of Montreal’s oldest markets still in operation, the Marché Jean-Talon. Built in 1933, it is a mecca for today’s foodies. In the summer, farmers offer up their fruit and vegetables in mouth-watering displays under the protective roof. Cheese, meat, fish, baked goods and exotic treats are also to be had in this bustling marketplace.
