Like most other things about Montreal, shopping is also a pleasure. From pleasant shopping streets that span at least eight city blocks and include trendy bars, restaurants and cafes with friendly staff to local markets and specialty craft shops, you'll find everything you need and want right here. It's actually a tough job to pare the offerings down to just 10 of the best but we've done it.
No visit to Montreal is complete without at least one shopping excursion. In fact, choosing to visit Montreal specifically for the shopping experience isn't a bad idea. In other major cities, your best option is often a large, overcrowded shopping mall and while those exist in Montreal, they're not your only option.
From all the shops, stores, boutiques, ateliers and markets in the city, 10Best narrows the options to those places with the most appeal and the best offerings. We deliver a carefully vetted selection to let you explore Montréal shopping on your own. If your time here is really tight and you don't have the leisure to take it all in, we present our Best Shopping list for Montréal. All of our suggestions are easily accessible from downtown either by foot or public transportation.
