Sampling the local specialities
Start your foodie tour in one of Montreal's markets. At the Jean-Talon market, to the north of the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough, you will find the very best local produce. From artisanal ice cream to freshly matured cheese, stalls full of fresh fruit and local specialities, there's something for everyone to get their teeth into. Many restaurants on the fringes of the market serve up delicious brunches. Close to the Lachine Canal is the Atwater market, another popular gourmet destination. In the main hall, butchers display their wares next to stalls selling traditional Quebec products. In the summer, food trucks park up at the back of the market, offering a varied range of creative dishes.
