The market was really interesting with a huge amount of variety. Meats, cheeses, wines, bakeries and anything else you would want to try or buy. Highly recommend going on a weekday if you can because ... read more »
I actually come here to buy food ... during the week it's not as busy (closed Monday). I have my favourite meat and cheese vendors. Love the Montreal style bagels. There are a couple of good value pla... read more »

I'm fortunate enough to work and live within walking distance of this gem. On Saturday's the farmer's market is open in addition to the main market and brings a whole extra level of selection from local farmers. Saturday's in the summer are a real treat with our local farm harvest season on full display. Tuesdays - Saturdays the main market has all you need in terms of selection from the best butchers and seafood purveyors, fresh produce (organic or conventional), huge selection of cheese and dairy and several options to eat as well. Tip: If you're going there to shop on Saturday, go early! By late morning it's packed with both shoppers and tourists alike.
National Geographic named this market the best in the world. And I can totally see why. It's really two places in one. One is an AMAZING place for people who live in the city (I live close by). You can get pretty much any meat product you can imagine. And it's all fresh. Great bakery inside (Futures bakery). A couple of competing fruit and veg shops that have great produce. Secondly it's a great place for tourists. Busters sea cove on the first floor has surprisingly great seafood considering there's no ocean for 1000's of mile. Try their crab cakes. Yum. In the basement there are a bunch of little shops and places serving food. Amongst them is Uno Mustachios. A little Italian grub shop. Their Godfathers spaghetti and meatballs are the best I've ever had.
Our St Lawrence Market has been named one of the top 10 best in the WORLD! The meat, produce, dairy including cheeses are always fresh and the variety is tremendous. The vendors are always willing to help, giving advice from storing you purchase to how to cook it. The are all remarkable and willing to be of service.
Historic and full of life (and dead animal products), nothing beats the St. Lawrence Market. Great quality food and lots of vendors to choose from. Prices can be good, but good food doesn't meant cheap. But it is fair and very much worth. And it's an experience just to walk around.
I've been religiously coming here every Saturday morning for the pat 8 years since I moved to Yonge and Eglinton and off since I was a wee one. Brown brothers are my fb place for chicken, sausages and bacon. The farmers market just outside to the south is always full of fresh veggies and friendly people. You can print the green P on weekends for $1 for a 2-hour or less visit. Plenty of time to hit both markets and grab a peameal bacon sandwich!
