The Time Out Market is an extensive food market that hosts local restaurant outlets, bars, cafes, and shops. (Think: A food court on steroids.)

According to a press release shared with Daily Hive, the new food market will be 36,000 sq. ft. and will hold 550 seats. There will be a mix of 16 selected restaurants, two bars, a demonstration kitchen, a cooking academy, a retail shop and a cultural stage – “Time Out Market Montreal will bring forth Montreal’s best, all under one roof.”

The first Time Out Market opened in Lisbon in 2014 and has become one of the country’s most popular attractions, according to a press release, hosting some 3.9 million visitors in 2018. In March of last year, the market received an international award as being the most visionary concept in the European food industry.

Time Out Montreal will anchor the $200 million renovations of Montreal’s Eaton Centre, which is expected to see more than 30 million patrons per year, making it the second-busiest centre in Canada, surpassed only by the CF Toronto Eaton Centre.

Expected to take over the new Eaton Centre in “late 2019,” Time Out Montreal shared its inaugural line up of the first eight chefs and restaurateurs:

“As you can see, this inaugural lineup features award-winning chefs and celebrated culinary talent, serving an incredibly diverse range of cuisines which Time Out Market will make affordable and accessible,” Time Out Market’s CEO Didier Souillat tells Daily Hive.
