Le Marche Atwater
Close to the bike paths along the Lachine Canal, Le Marche Atwater pieces together a farmers’ market atmosphere from a mix of pastry shops, chocolatiers, and flower stalls. Built in 1933 and designed by father and son Ludger and Paul Lemieux, the Art Deco-style market was a government economic-stimulus project during the Great Depression. Atwater’s outdoor plant, fruit, and vegetable stands lead indoors to wine shops and bakeries. Grab-and-go options include blueberry juice from Alma Fruits Distribution, steamed pork buns at Satay Brothers, and sweet and sour cashews from Les Noix du Marché.
