  1. The gourmet food place at the Atwater market. I can't remember the name(it's Lesley Chesterman's(Montreal Gazette critic & food writer) favourite place at the market).

    1. Les Douceurs du Marchee at Atwater Market, perhaps (could be the one BLM is referring to as well).

      1. do they have a large selection of hot sauce? what i am talking about are those walls of hot sauce america style - like wild wood jersey - not the standards found within the likes of cinq saison. THANK YOU

        1. I've seen many sauces at La Dépense at JTM.

            Most everything available at La Dépense can be bought for less at asian markets around town. If you want asian products it's well worth making a trip to Marché Hawaï on Marcel-Laurin in Ville Saint-Laurent.

              The original poster is looking for hot sauce, not Asian food. ;-)

          2. For an amazing selection, do you know the store in Ottawa that sells only hot sauces (+dried chiles); it's really a fun place, just 2 hrs away. You can order by mail as well:
            Chilly Chiles
            Address : 493 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, ON K1N 6Z5
            Telephone : 613-241-6668

                THEY MOVED!!
                they used to be on Sussex, and now they have a new location somewhere in the west end..I'm sure the site has the address..AMAZING store though..Everything you could ever want in a hot sauce..hundreds of choices and varying degrees of heat.
