  • We were told to check out the markets while we were in Toronto. While it has excellent produce it is not a very practical trip for tourists staying in hotels. If you are in a condo or Airbnb it would ...  more »
  • Very cool place to check out! Upstairs is like a farmers market with lots of meat, fish, cheese and bread vendors. Downstairs is like a cafeteria. We ate lunch there twice!  more »

  • I wish I could visit here more often! So many cool shops. Bakers, butchers, grocers, clothing, coffee, trinkets; you name it, you can probably find something close to it here! All the food is fresh and delicious, and you're bound to find something new every time you visit. The shop owners are all very friendly too, and helpful answering questions about some of the unique food and product offerings. It's a little bit of a hike from the true downtown core, but it's well worth the walk or transit!
  • Hey Toronto landmark. Peameal bacon sandwiches, veal sandwiches, grilled cheeses. If you can’t get it here, they don’t have it. I recommend knowing what you want to buy, before you go there. Prices vary dramatically between the various butchers, depending on the cut of meat or seafood that you need. Oh, I forgot about the bagels. The best in the province.Montreal style. Amazing.
  • I love St. Lawrence market! There's so much to explore. Various different vendors, from food to clothing to everything in between. I've bought meat veggies fish and bread products here and have always been very happy with the quality. The vendors are always so nice and happy to answer questions and give out samples. I love the mustard shop. Great way to spend a sat morning while getting some shopping done.
  • Great array of goods and services. I usually am able to find stuff that I can’t get elsewhere at a fairly reasonable price. Situated in a great neighborhood with lots of other stores and restaurants in the direct vicinity. Sad to see the North market going but look forward to seeing what goes in instead as the plans look exciting. Excellent “vibe” to this market. Especially busy on Saturday morning.
  • I always love going to the market. Even when I don't need anything, I just love going and seeing everything. They have foods that I can't find elsewhere. And the prices are fair. In some cases I've found items cheaper at the market than at the grocery store. You can get cuts of meat that you can't easily find elsewhere. The product quality is also great. In some cases I'm happy to pay a little more for a superior product. The people who work the stalls are proud of their work and what they produce. They have an abundance of knowledge and love to answer any questions.
