  • Too bad for Covid because this place would be amazing. If you are from Toronto, excellent place for meats, cheeses, pastries, etc. We would have needed a cooler and be headed home right afterwards.....  more »

  • St Lawrence Market was a wonderful experience. The place was immaculate. All of the various vendors were polite and well-dressed. Personally I bought seafood and it was fantastic. I would recommend the st. Lawrence Market to anybody visiting Toronto or to everybody who lives there. Whether you're grocery shopping or looking for a quick snack they have everything there. Fine Quality Meats great seafood and wonderful produce
  • I love this market every time I come to visit Toronto. Coming from Vancouver with the ever busy Granville Island, I honestly quite prefer St Lawrence. I love Mike's Fish Market where one can enjoy fresh East Coast oysters with fabulous sauces. They even do steamed fresh lobster on the spot for you to enjoy! Love wandering about the market sampling things. On a cold winter day the seafood chowder is a must!
  • This is simply a must-see when visiting Toronto, the place were food meets history. There has been a market on this site since 1803 and boats once docked along the south end of the building, on the south side of "The Esplanade". The Market's evolution as a civic building has included a courthouse, police station, jail, the first permanent City Hall. A portion of the latter remains visible as the central portion and entrance of the present Front Street facade. This living symbol of Toronto's history is not only a destination for fresh food, but a tourist destination and the heart of Old Town and the the centre of family life for the thousands of families that call the St. Lawrence neighbourhood home. Come visit and enjoy the new Sunday hours beginning in March 15, 2020!
  • It is the largest food market in North America. Do not miss out on giving this place a visit when in Toronto. There are souvenir shops, shops offering fresh breads and food. You can shop fresh sea food, chicken and meat, wine, cheese and much more.. The place is lively and full of locals.. don't miss out on this !!
  • Went here three different times during my trip to Toronto. I got the famous peameal bacon sandwich from Carousel Bakery which was delicious. I got a chocolate croissant from Future Bakery which was one of the better chocolate croissants that I've had. Then finally I went to St. Urbain Bagel and got a pretzel bagel which was great! After walking around here three different times I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any of the vendors. I would suggest coming here to grab a full meal or even a quick bite!
