The building that houses the Bonsecours Market is considered one of the ten best heritage buildings in Canada and is well worth a visit for anyone not even interested in shopping, but interested in Canadian history and architecture. This building was first brought in to existence in 1847 and has been growing strong as a market place ever since. It is located in the oldest part of Montreal so the entire area around the Bonsecours Market is also steeped in history for anyone wanting more information about Canada's heritage.
The Bonsecours Market also houses many restaurants and it is a place that people hold weddings and parties or even corporate gatherings. It is also the Headquarters of the Council of Crafts in Quebec. The name comes from the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel that is situated right next door to the Bonsecours Market.
