History of Marché 440


When it first opened in 1983, this farmer’s market was quite literally located in the middle of agricultural fields. At that time, Autoroute 440 was simply a boulevard. Our family has continued to expand the company, from generation to generation, by adapting to the needs of Laval residents.


Many vendors whom opened their doors at the beginning are still offering their services today, such as the fishmonger, Variation 440, Vrac en folie, Pizza Mia and Pasta Bella. It is a pleasure and an honour to share this history with them!


True to its traditions and thanks to its unique way of doing things, the market has built genuine relationships with its clientele, provided personalised service, and offered fresh, high-quality products throughout the years! Fads may come and go, but some things are timeless.


Customers today like to know where their food comes from, and they are more health conscious. With its local products, Marché 440 promotes healthy eating while supporting local businesses. Our market offers innovation while staying true to its traditional values.


The vendors you’ll discover here are passionate. They know their products like the back of their hand and will take great pleasure in sharing their knowledge with you. Many of them have been plying their trade for many generations and you can taste it! They rely on their experience, but nevertheless know how to evolve to meet the needs of a clientele that is increasingly interested in quality food and cooking.
