Jean talon market greehouse

I hear that jean talon market has a greenhouse with organic produce of different fruits and vegetables has anyone been already if so is it good.

  1. You are probably thinking of Lufa (the rooftop greenhouse), located in Ahuntsic.
    No greenhouse at JTM, at least not that I'm aware of.

    1. I don't think JT has a greenhouse, it is probably Lufa as ios94 says. If you want a wonderful place for local fruits and veg it's Birri Brothers. They sell out of their elevator in the winter :).

      Happy eating, Oana

        Luca94 is right... the greenhouse is supposed to open on april 22...

          Well not really, that's not a greenhouse... and even if they grow something on the roof, the space is still limited... I doubt they will have enough vegetables to provide everyone at the market for more than like one day!

          I like the project though

          1. re: Glaff

            Interesting, have not heard about this. Is this project still happening because that article with the April 22nd target date is from last April and I can't say I've noticed anything going on. Then again it's not like I'm looking up at the roof when I'm there.

            1. re: ios94

              The "Toit Vert" project was put on hold, last summer.


              I haven't found any other news on the subject published after that date.

              I'm pretty sure this is not was the OP is talking about. I wish they would come back and help us out.

            "might" open on the 22 if all goes according to plans.

            Funny, the image they show make it look like a circuit board.

            Oana, can you provide more info on Birri... one of the few reasons I go to JTM in the summer is them. What do you mean they sell of their elevator in the winter? thanks!
