The Atwater Market was built in 1933 to replace the old St-Antoine market on Torrance Street in the Little Burgundy neighbourhood.
The Market, located in a Art Deco building, has more than 60 indoor shops and stands for butchers, farmers, flower sellers, bakery, cheese shops, and other shops. During the summer months there are stalls lining the outside sidewalk. A footbridge leads from the Atwater Market to the Lachine Canal and St Patrick Street where people find picnic tables, walking and cycling trails, as well as cross country ski trails.
The path travels from the down-town.
The Lionel-Groulx Metro station (subway station) is on Atwater and Lionel-Groulx intersection, near the Atwater Market. Dozens of Montreal’s best antique stores are located on Notre-Dame Street, just a few blocks east of the market.
