Itinerary

Meet your guide near Montreal’s biggest market. With your group, step into Jean-Talon’s maze of local produce, maple syrup, and specialty foods. The guide chooses (at least) six stops for tastings, while introducing the diverse traditions of Montreal food.

After exploring Jean-Talon Market, continue through the city streets, pausing for a tasting at a hole-in-the-wall Salvadorian place. Here and throughout the tour, take advantage of the small group format to ask questions about Montreal culture and food, getting tips on where to eat, drink, and explore in the city.

Following the tasting, keep walking through hip Mile-Ex, where startup craft breweries share space with longtime neighborhood favorites.

Finish the tour at the edge of Little Italy, the place where in-the-know locals head for the city's best pasta and Latin American shops.

Emily was a fantastic guide with first hand knowledge from living blocks from the market and a frequent visitor to all our stops. She led us to really neat food vendors in the market and in each case gave us their back story. Then she...More

Make This Your First Tour

My one regret was that I didn't do this day one in Montreal. Our guide, Ann Marie, does a great job at personalizing this. Every stop is worthwhile, but the farmer's market would be worth the price. As an extra, you get off the beaten...More
