Maisonneuve Market

Map
4445 E. Ontario St., Montreal, Quebec

Designed by Marius Dufresne and completed in 1914, the five-story Maisonneuve Market is located in its namesake district. Although historically a daily market, from the 1960s to 1995 there was a police office and cultural center in the Beaux-Arts building. The large plaza in front has a fountain and Canadian artist Alfred Laliberté's statue, La Fermière. The bronze figure is a 17th-century farmer, alluding to the area’s long history as a market. Vendors range from grocery to gourmet, like the Fromagerie Maisonneuve cheese stand, Boulangerie Première Moisson bakery, and Aux Champêtreries, which sells Quebec-made products.
