The Jean-Talon market



One afternoon, my friends and I were supposed to join the daily school activity, which that day was the tour of Jean-Talon market. Unfortunately, while we were waiting in our school's common area, our guide left without our knowledge. Thus, we had to go there by ourselves. We took the metro to the Jean-Talon station and looked for the way to the market. Before we realized the market shouldn't have been that far, we had walked for about 30 minutes. We started asking passerby's at random. Despite the official language being French in Montreal, most people could speak English as well, so no problems for tourists coming here alone.



We finally found where the market was located. In fact, it was not as far as we previously thought. The market was quite large, and surprisingly clean. The reason I loved the place so much was that I could find a wide variety of cheap products as well as free samples of fruit, vegetables and cheese. There was no need to be shy, we could just try it before we paid.

看完了你這篇blog, 讓我更確定找天應該要來看看這個market^^ 因為我才剛到Montreal不到一個月, 所以實在是不知道有哪裡好逛的.

那個市場周邊還蠻多不錯的店,像很有名的麵包店Première Moisson.太冷的話,可以在附近找間咖啡店喝個熱咖啡.有空一定要去看看:)
