Time Out Market Montreal

Time Out Market is about to open its first Canadian location

Canada's first ever outpost of a world-famous food hall where high curation is the name of the game is set to open its doors next month in downtown Montreal, right inside the Eaton Centre.

Time Out Market Montreal, billed as the next "hotspot for foodies and culture lovers," aims to offer the best of the city under one roof.

And when I say the best, I mean the best of the best, as determined by experts who live and breathe culinary curation.

"In 2014, Time Out Lisbon editors turned a historic market hall in the city into Time Out Market, thus creating the world's first food and cultural market, and the first market experience rooted wholly in editorial curation," reads a description of the global media empire's first food market venture.

"A place that previously housed the city's top vendors now brings together the best of the city under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences, based on the editorial curation Time Out has always been known for."

Since launching in Lisbon, Time Out has expended this concept into Miami, Boston and New York. Along with Montreal, new Time Out Markets are in the works for Chicago, Dubai, Prague and London, where the publishing company started back in 1968.

Sixteen of Montreal's top chefs, restaurateurs and mixologists have been tapped to launch the first Time Out Market in Canada, including Charles-Antoine Crête and Cheryl Johnson of Montreal Plaza, Normand Laprise of Toqué!, Claude Pelletier and Mélanie Blouin of Le Club Chasse et Pêche, Jeffrey Finkelstein of the bakery Hof Kelsten and Paul Toussaint of Agrikol.

The 40,000-square-foot food hall will feature a variety of food stalls, as well as three bars, a demonstration kitchen, a cooking academy, a retail shop and a "cultural stage."

Time Out Montreal opens to the public on November 14.
