In this day and age where the number of fine-dining restaurants and fancy cafes are increasing, the institution of food market is slowly becoming neglected.

Food markets are where you get to try the produce that vendors are selling, and buy it only if you like it. If you don’t, no hard feelings, just walk about and try the next stall! With such a wide variety of foods and cuisines available, it’s a safe bet to assume that you’ll eventually stumble upon something you love!

Note: While sellers are more than happy for the public to sample their wares, they are still running a business and trying to make an honest living at the end of the day. If you genuinely do enjoy their food-stuff, please do consider supporting them and buying a portion for yourself!

  2. Atwater Market in Montreal carries over 3000 different products from around the world, and yet it is not even the biggest food market in its own city! That honour belongs to the Jean-Talon Market which houses an incredible 300 individual stalls.
  3. You’ll find plenty of buskers and street musicians at the Borough Market in London, which can make for wonderful background music as you’re scarfing down the piping hot pad thai you just bought. Who says good music and good food can’t come at affordable prices?
