  • שוק מזון צבעוני בסגנון של פעם. יש שם כל מה שמחפשים. מרשים במיוחד היצע הבשרים והדגים. כתיירים אין לזאת משמעות רבה אבל תמיד נעים לראות. את הקניות בחזרה הביתה ולחברים עשינו שם.  more »
  • Great prices. A must to shop for fresh produce and seafood. Reasonable & friendly faces. Easy to find and get to.  more »
  • On Saturday, eve of the feast of Palm Sunday, we are back in Toronto; the market is busy and the atmosphere is festive; at the 2nd level, the exhibition gallery presents a theme in connection with the settlement of Upper Canada, since first nations (who sold the location of the city for a ridiculous amount: scam!) via the WASP and the different waves of immigrants; the living conditions were sometimes very difficult. the exhibitions recounts with a lot of honesty racist and xenophobic reactions which were the victims some people such as Africans and Asians, and also the end of discrimination: ultimately, obtaining a multiethnic and multicultural society; beautiful impression of justice, since the Canadian real wore feathers and ate the seal.

  • 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.
  • I like the market, but it ain't cheap. I can get decent Atlantic salmon steaks for nearly half the price elsewhere, and produce is rarely a good deal. Still it's a good place to look around - there's some reasonably priced (for good cheese) good cheese at Olympic Cheese; Montreal style bagels at St Urbain; Ukrainian specialties at Dnister (in the back of the basement floor); Rube's Rice and the coffee and tea place next to it; some choice meats, and lots of other good stuff.
  • I'm proud to point out the National Geographic identified the St Lawrence market as one of the best food markets in the world. Good place to buy meat, seafood, cheese and produce. Over the last decade it's become a bit more touristy / skewed to more finished goods but remains a wonderful place to go shopping. The peameal bacon sandwiches from Carousel or veal sandwiches from Mustachios are the classics on the finished goods side. Look forward to seeing what the renovated Northern/Farmers market is like when it (finally) opens.
  • This is an amazing market. Rich in its history deeply rooted in this city's very inception. The market has been at the heart of our city since the 1700's come for the incredible selection of fresh produce, meats and cheeses. Visit the art gallery in the former first city Hall.
  • This market has a ton of great specialty food shops to go to. The farmers' market here has a lot of great seasonal produce. It's also quite easily accessible by transit.
