  • Seems like a very touristic attraction. 5$ an avocado ? 10$ a jam from Scotland, REALLY? Also, the food like pizza and pastries seemed to be very low quality. Did not buy anything

  • A lot of space. Compared to other markets the walkways seemed twice as large, great to keep foot traffic moving. Plenty of shops for ingredients or a meal. Very clean. I recommend stopping at...

  • I think that every visitor to Toronto should visit the market. There are all types of small shops including, clothes from South America, jewelry and a few other things downstairs. Don't hesitate to visit all the eateries, etc. There is a lot to eat. You can find some of the best maple syrup here at a very reasonable price. The tourist buses stop here. Public transportation is almost at its doorstep. Don't forget that you can find one of the biggest collections of sweets at Dominoes downstairs. You can purchase prepared food, drinks, pastries and fruits to take with you or eat here. There is a patio with lots of tables and benches. The prepared food is cheaper than most places in this restaurant district. You must walk right through the market both upstairs and downstairs because some of the eateries are tucked away. Although I wrote about eating here, don't forget that it is a market, so don't expect the same standard as a restaurant when coming to seating arrangements and service. Enjoy.
  • It's a big indoor meat and produce market. Everything is fresh and you have high quality meat cuts, fruits and vegetables of every kind, fresh lactose based products and even a wide wine selection for every palette. There is also a small souvenir shop inside. There are randomly placed seating areas or tables where you can eat standing up. The immediate outside area is very nice with other shops and businesses in beautiful buildings and there is an outdoor seating area running along side of the market. If I were a local, I'd try to do my shopping here, without a doubt.
  • This Market will always have a special place in my heart. In my eyes it's one of the best places to grab the freshest ingredients for your dishes downtown, uptown, any dang town. The amount of warm hearted people who will always do their best to help you, always cheers me up. The positive environment being under the roof of a historic building always makes for a welcome stroll to add all the delicious food vendors is was makes the St. Lawrence Market so special. It's truly the perfect package and a must visit for any traveler or food lover. The food is always freaking incredible! you cannot go wrong with any vendor!!! Visiting with my fiance was the highlight of our weekend and something We anxiously awaited for every week. We've made some friends with the local vendors and had the most fun visiting them, seeing what's new on their menus, walking in the market grabbing the ingredients for a fresh breakfast as well as what we'd need for our dinner creation we'd be enjoying that night. We lived as if we were in Europe, grabbing the freshest food from local farmers, engaging in warm conversations and sharing smiles with the women and people I love the most, Canadians!!!!!!
  • Hi and Good Day to all!!. What a pleasure to shop at the Market. I enjoy all the vendors and conversing. I can appreciate their hard work. I am thanking the produce guys, meat department and those whose names have not been mentioned. They are included in this review-I bought some produce that was delicious the best, the roast I bought was the best I ever had. Kudos to the Bakery and numerous other vendors. Thanks Again JP Preston.
  • A wonderful marketplace with a variety of fresh and high quality foods sold by small family owned shops. I was wonderfully surprised by how organized and clean the whole place was, yet at the same time it had a lot of character and charm. The most common produce being sold here are: Meat (beef, pork, sea food, chicken, etc.), Baked goods (sweets and savory) Fruit and some vegetables Cheese, olives and other pickled goods There are also many snacks to buy here in case you are just looking for something light to eat! Try a $5 big cup of fruit salad, or buy some delicious spicy pepperoni sticks 50 cent each and finish with a box of fresh cheese curds for $5.
