605 Reviews
Bonsecours Market (Marché Bonsecours)
Built in the 1840s, this neoclassical silver-domed building has served as a farmers market, theater, and for a brief stint as Montreal's city hall. It was threatened with demolition before being converted into the current market complex, which contains cafes, restaurants, galleries, and shops selling Quebec-made crafts and design items.

The Basics
A National Historic Site in the heart of Old Montreal (Vieux-Montreal), Bonsecours Market (Marché Bonsecours) is commonly visited by travelers exploring on foot. Wander around the shops at your leisure, admiring high-quality products ranging from kitchenware to handmade jewelry. Galleries inside the market display works from First Nations and Quebec artists.

Many walking tours of Old Montreal include time at the market. Guides can provide additional information on the history of the market, which has witnessed many periods of political turbulence. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bonsecours Market is a must for architecture enthusiasts and shoppers looking to pick up quality local goods. 
  • Several restaurants and cafes can be found within the market. 
  • Bonsecours Market is partially though not fully wheelchair accessible, and some of the surrounding cobbled streets may prove challenging. 

How to Get There
Bonsecours Market is in Old Montreal next to the Old Port (Vieux-Port). The nearest metro station is Champ-de-Mars (Orange Line), which is less than 10 minutes away on foot. 

When to Get There 
The indoor Bonsecours Market is open year-round. In winter, it provides a warm shelter from the freezing city streets, while in the hot summer, it serves as a cooling refuge. The market is typically busier during summer, when more tourists are in town. 

What to See Nearby
Bonsecours Market is in Old Montreal, a district known for its atmospheric cobbled streets and historic architecture, some of which date back to the early days of New France. While you're in the area, be sure to take a stroll down Rue Saint-Paul, on which the market is located. This cobbled stretch is one of the city's prettiest thoroughfares. Other worthwhile attractions within easy walking distance of the market include the 18th-century Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel and Ramezay Castle (Chateau Ramezay), the 18th-century residence of French governors, which now serves as a history museum displaying historic art, furniture, and other items.
