The Life Of A Public Market

A photo essay about Montreal's largest public market and why it is successful.

In this brief photo essay, Maisonneuve's urban issues columnist takes a look at Montreal's Jean-Talon Market, one of the largest public markets in Canada. Outlining its history and development, he also presents nearly two dozen photos of market life in action, arguing that a public market must be "accessible, locally oriented, inexpensive and an anchor for the surrounding community."
