Montreal centre-ville

For those who have not yet had the chance to discover this concept, the Time-Out Market is a culinary and cultural experience bringing together, under one roof, the best chefs, mixologists, restaurants and bars in Montreal. It is a famous concept that can be found in several major cities around the world, including Lisbon, Miami, New York, Boston, Chicago, Dubai, London and, of course, Montreal.

It’s no secret that this food market, which opened in November 2019, has been hit hard by the lockdown. Fortunately for foodies, the Time-Out Market officially reopened on July 2, 2021 with full of new surprises.

Located on the 2nd floor of the Eaton Center, the majority of gourmet food court chefs and restaurants are back this year – Kamuy, Bistro T, Il Miglio, Moleskine, Marusan and le Red Tiger – in addition to a few new arrivals -le Campo, le Blossom, le Taj, le Diplomate, Casa Kaizen and Tunnel Espresso.

With the summer fading away and the return of more and more Montrealers in downtown offices, the city center is slowly coming back to life. This revival also means that social activities in the workplace may soon restart. We’re talking here about the comeback of business meetings, team building happy hours and dinners with colleagues.

Because it can sometimes be difficult to find a place that’s 100% inclusive, here are 5 reasons to pick the Time-Out Market for your next get together.

1. There is something for everyone

With a hyper-diversified culinary and cultural offer, even the most difficult palates will find what they are looking for. The Time-Out Market brings together around many restaurateurs offering a different type of cuisine: from Italian to Pan-Caribbean, that are suitable for all types of diets: vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, etc.

Pro tip: Everything seems tempting to you? You don’t know what to pick? Choose a starter, a main course and a dessert from three different places. Because, why not?

2. Exceptional quality at a low price

The magic of Time-Out Montreal is that you can taste the crème de la crème of Montreal gastronomy without having to pour out your entire paycheck. It is possible to afford a full meal at a very reasonable price. It’s also a great way to get a taste of a particular restaurant before making a reservation for a big outing.

What could be more central than the city center? If your office is in the Ville-Marie borough, you can get there by passing in the underground pedestrian network, rain or shine !

4. Discover new cultures

Let yourself be transported by a region of the world through an unparalleled culinary journey. Neapolitan pizzas, Vietnamese street food, fresh sashimi, vegan tacos, the options are endless… Bonus: ask the chefs questions about their food and culture to learn more.

5. Safe and festive environment

Not your ordinary food court! After ordering your meal, create your own bubble in the bar section, where you can sip a nice selection of alcoholic drinks (or not). You will find a micro-brewery section, a wine bar and a chic cocktail and mocktail bar signed by mixologists from ten cocktail bars in Montreal.
