This is the place I used to go when I lived there and when in Toronto, I always visit. Grab a coffee and walk around and explore the many shops downstairs and the cheese and meat markets on the upper level. The service is very friendly and you just don't want to leave. They have very reasonable prices and offer... More

The market is closed on Sundays but then the attraction is the Antiques Market!, love it! good prices and a lot of fun! The neighborhood is an historic place in... More

Voted number one food market in the world?! I'm so there! Massive market with lots to see, sample and buy. I live in Toronto, and used to shop at SLM every Saturday with my room mate, when I first moved here. The main building food market is where I usually ventured. The layout of the place was easy to maneuver... More

The Saint Lawrence Market is a stellar array of culinary must sees. Have cheese, olives, produce, smoked meats and fish from all over the Country and enjoy the diversity that Toronto is famous for. Downstairs you can buy just about any kind of rice you have ever heard of, foods from south america, mexico, and the south of France. Where... More

We got the peameal bacon sandwich which is a tradition and very tasty. Purchased some the bacon and they air licked it so we could get it back to Ohio. Got some great wine and cheeses. Would go here every weekend if we lived here.

This is a really friendly market staffed by people who are passionate about their food. It is authentic, charming and busy with 12000 visitors a day. Well worth stopping off for a good value lunch.

Lots of lovely food made me wish we were self catering. We tried the famous peameal bacon sandwich and the fresh bagels which were amazing. In all honesty I think the central market in Barcelona has the edge but as with everywhere in Toronto it was laid back, spotlessly clean and welcoming.

Worth a trip to this bustling market. The smells and sights evoke the senses and there is a real buzz to the place. Enjoyed the best burrito ever thanks to Carniceros. Highly recommended.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
