We got the peameal bacon sandwich which is a tradition and very tasty. Purchased some the bacon and they air licked it so we could get it back to Ohio. Got some great wine and cheeses. Would go here every weekend if we lived here.

This is a really friendly market staffed by people who are passionate about their food. It is authentic, charming and busy with 12000 visitors a day. Well worth stopping off for a good value lunch.

Lots of lovely food made me wish we were self catering. We tried the famous peameal bacon sandwich and the fresh bagels which were amazing. In all honesty I think the central market in Barcelona has the edge but as with everywhere in Toronto it was laid back, spotlessly clean and welcoming.

Worth a trip to this bustling market. The smells and sights evoke the senses and there is a real buzz to the place. Enjoyed the best burrito ever thanks to Carniceros. Highly recommended.

We were staying just down the road from here so popped in one morning to see if we could get some breakfast and happened to find Yiannis where I had a nice toasted bagel & Earl Grey and my hubby had a ham & egg sandwich with coffee for a very reasonable price. There are bread, meat, flower and jewellery... More

It is always a great experience to visit the market, all the vendors and food! It does get very crowded towards the afternoon, but still manageable.

We have not been here for a long time, but really enjoyed it yesterday, lots of yummy good food. Get there early and be willing to try new things. There are lots of vendors, like meat, cheese, groceries, fruits, vegetables and many many more. You can take around 2 hours, go on an empty stomach.

Went to browse, but of course you have try the peameal bacon sandwich and then we went downstairs for crepes for dessert! On the way out we sampled some wine and bought some baked goods! Good place for a quick trip or an extended shopping experience.

This market has been the love of my life my while life. I am very very thankful that others share my feelings, seeing as it has been rated number 1 or 2 for several years - globally. Enough said. Just go.

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.
