Montreal's first used record outlet is in many ways still the best. Poky, musty and full of great finds in both the CD and book departments, it's a source of great, unexpected treasures. Though it offers a fairly impressive selection of used rock, R&B, classical and world music, the shop really shines in its assortment of jazz, blues, electronica and other experimental genres. You can check out the catalog online, or consult the extremely knowledgeable staff, who will be glad to let you have a listen to your prospective purchases.
Set in an art deco-building and in existence since 1933, this market has both indoor and outdoor sections. Aside from fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers, you have your choice of a wide variety of commodities: from specialty shops selling delicious baked goods to butchers and fishmongers. La Fromagerie boasts more than 400 types of cheese from France and Quebec, including a raw goat milk cheddar. The Premiere Moisson bakery is famous for its flaky croissants and game-based pâtés. Even if you have already done your food shopping, it is a great place for people watching.
