Jean-Talon Market (French: March? Jean-Talon) is a farmer's market in Montreal. Located in the Little Italy district, the market is bordered by Jean-Talon Street to the north, Mozart Ave. to the south, Casgrain Ave. to the west and Henri-Julien Ave. to the east. It contains two city-maintained streets both called Place du March? du Nord. The market is located between the Jean-Talon and De Castelnau metro stations.

The market is open year-round, even during Montreal's severe winters, although during this time walls are placed around the entire market area. During the peak summer period, between June and October, its open-air arcades are occupied by about 300 vendors, mostly farmers from the countryside around Montreal.

The open air market is surrounded by other food businesses: meat, fish and cheese stores, bulk food emporia, dealers in spices and imported goods, bakeries, restaurants and a branch of the SAQ, among others.
Stores surrounding the open-air market include: La Fromagerie Hamel William J. Walter boucherie Les Touilleurs kitchenware
Since July 15, 2006 vehicles are banned from circulating inside the market's streets during the summer weekends.
