  • I bought cheese, ham, and a loaf there. Cannot tell you which was better, they were all above my expectations. I also took some pictures of the ceiling and some of the walls above entrance level, from...  more »
  • They sell a variety of food, general merchandise, etc., there are many eat shop. Japan language could make a souvenir shop she was Japanese. I bought a lot of souvenirs, such as Maple toy. Cheese in Japan is impossible as is selling cheeses like so please try us. Eat is pretty crowded. Better overall normal supermarkets price high because so may be tourist-friendly. In Toronto there are excellent building and tourist attraction is the best scenic spots.

  • We walked all over Toronto and stopped here. There are so many shops and foods to try. It's a great place for lunch and a good spot to warm up. There is something for everyone here.  more »

  • Do I need to post about the market; it's freaking St. Lawrence Market. There are so many unique vendors along with vendors you'd expect. Everything is fresh and supported by skilled people in their trade. If you haven't shipped here try it just once and you will immediately remember what shopping for food was like. Oh yeah there are also shops that prepare their specialty on the spot for lunch or a quick snack.
  • The only thing that has changed over the past decade is the prices. The bacon sandwiches are still the best in the city and there's always fresh pasta and pizza being made. I love going to the market early Saturday morning because the farmers market is open and you can get almost any type of produce you can think of and it's fresh from the farm. The market can get quite busy throughout the day, I'd recommend going early as possible to get the freshest food and best experience.
  • Super fun experience. We got some incredible blueberries from the "King of Berries" stand and some delicious baked goods from Carousel Bakery (they're famous for their peameal bacon sandwich but I really loved the custard tarts). Also really enjoyed crepes at Crepe it Up downstairs So many fresh and delicious items and lots of free samples.
  • You can find any food product in this marketplace. I could spend hours there buying different meat and vegetable products that you may not find anywhere else. The restaurants within have some very authentic food, at great prices. And the food is very quick, if you rushing to get back to work. Definitely check it out.
  • The market has a wide range of foodstuffs. You can also eat there. I had fried calamari from Buster's Sea Cove and they were as fresh as you could get them. Very very good. Cakes are good too, we tried the cheesecake.
