  • This place is truly a mecca and we all know it! The finest, freshest meats, cheeses, pastas, salads, fruit and veggies all under one roof. Oyama's meats is truly the best in the city and the staff at Benton's cheeses are great, it's great to be able to taste what kind of cheese before you buy it, especially if you want to be a little bit more adventurous. Grab some of these fine treats and you've got yourself a beautiful spread for a picnic on a nice sunny day. My biggest gripes: the lack of quality food and variety in the food court. When it's busy, it's truly a nightmare to navigate.
  • Nice market with many different things to buy such as food and clothes. Not enough indoor seating, but there is seating outdoors if you don't mind the seagulls trying to steal your food. Wouldn't waste time with parking here since you're going to spend a good amount your day walking around. Bathrooms available. Water fountains available.
  • Amazing food. During the summer, it's best to go during the week because tourists flock the place on weekends and make it more crowded than usual. They have great produce as well as freshly made foods. Hard to find seating where the seagulls don't hound you for food. Much better than the food market in Toronto.
  • Fantastic market, with so many great things to eat. Fresh produce of all kinds. Definitely check out the many cheese and butcher counters. I absolutely love going to this market. Some great lunch options here as well
  • The Public Market here was awesome, with lots of beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, fresh fish, sausages, cheeses, and when you get so hungry you can't stand it anymore, there are numerous eateries to choose from. There are also vendors of various crafts, and a large outdoor area to enjoy live music and the view of the water. Overall it was a very fun place to stop.
