I enjoyed this market with all the fresh and varied food. Saw some products I carted all the way home from Italy, lol. The prices seemed reasonable but the freshness of the food was remarkable, beautiful asparagus, for only $1.50 a pound, fresh strawberries and even fiddlehead. Souvenirs including maple syrup available

We went out a Saturday morning, which turned out to be the best day for it. Good buzz all round, wonderful comprehensive selection of fresh produce and some cooked food stalls. The fresh produce was excellent, every thing you can think of, the meats and the diary products were outstanding. Be warned that it isn't heavy on cooked food options,... More

Always buy organic meat and veggie/fruit from this place. It is very clean and vendors are very friendly. High end market. The smell of the food bought here when cooked or being cooked is different (smells fresh and good) compared to regular grocery stores. I always receive compliments when my visitors tasted the food I cooked and served to them.

Make a day out of it, if you come early to shop you will bell leaving early as fresh produce and butcher meat doesnt fare well in the car, come later when they are shutting down you may get discounted items, not every vendor is permanent, its has a lot to offer, from fresh pies, to fresh juices butchers and...

While not as large as some of the markets in European cities such as Barcelona and Madrid, this is certainly worth a visit. In addition to a good place to get a quality lunch, it is an outstanding place to buy quality meats, seafood and produce. It is also a fun place to watch the locals and the tourists and... More

We spent about 40 minutes looking for the coffee shop not knowing it was on the lower floor! We were planning a quick stop to get coffee but end up staying over 3 hours there! There is so much to see and eat and even thought it was super busy people at the shops were super friendly it was an... More

St Lawrence Market is one of my "must see" spots in Toronto. I've never been there on a Saturday before though. WOW! That place was hopping! Each time I visit I find something interesting that I hadn't noticed before. This time I haddock and chips for a lunch from the seafood place and a fantastic slice of chocolate cake from... More

If you are a foodie this place is a must visit. Vendors offer lots of samples. But people - please use a new toothpick EVERY time. You can include this on a food tour but feel free to wander on your own. A satellite Farmers Market every Saturday is a great bonus. I could go on and on, but visit... More

Very cool food market with good prices on items. Would not recommend if you are on vacation as this is more of a grocery shopping spot rather than a place to stop to eat (even though there are some options for that).

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
