Fodor's Review

You can't buy fruits and vegetables in the Marché Bonsecours anymore, but you can view an exhibit, shop for local fashions, crafts, and souvenirs in the row of upscale boutiques that fill its main hall, lunch in one of several restaurants, or grab a craft beer. But the Marché is best admired from the outside. Built in the 1840s as the city's main market, it is possibly the most beautifully proportioned neoclassical building in Montréal, with its six cast-iron Doric columns and two rows of meticulously even sashed windows, all topped with a silvery dome. Perhaps the Marché was too elegant to be just a farmers' market.
