The Eaton Centre is undergoing a $200-million facelift and it’s headlined by the Time Out Market, a giant circular food market that includes local restaurant outlets, bars, cafes, and shops.
Think: a high school cafeteria on steroids.
Time Out Market Montreal opened to the general public today and the 36,000 sq. ft. space seems to already be attracting a lot of customers amongst downtown’s constant foot traffic.

Time Out promises to have “something for everyone,” says Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market. “You will get to choose from an incredible range of the city’s best cuisine, served on fine china and enjoyed in a communal setting. We are making fine dining casual, and casual extraordinary — we call it the democratization of fine dining.”
The first Time Out Market opened in Lisbon in 2014 and has become one of the country’s most popular attractions, hosting some 3.9 million visitors in 2018 alone.
Montreal’s take on the market has 15 different outlets, a bar, a giant TV screen, and entrances from both Ste. Cat and Boulevard Robert-Bourassa.
The meal options for the 550-seat market includes following local hot spots:
- Le Red Tiger
- Le Club Chasse et pêche
- Il Miglio
- Montréal Plaza
- Hof Sucrée (an offshoot of Hof Kelsten)
- Brasserie T!
- Olive et Gourmando
- Dalla Rose
- Ateliers et Saveurs
- Grumman ’78
