The food options at this market are amazing. Must sees include: the mustard stand, the seafood place and the pasta place. Make sure you don't miss the dessert stop, the coffee haven, the freshly squeezed juice stand and the Eastern European food stand - all downstairs. The one thing that is a sore disappointment (and was an unbelievable shock when... More

The peameal bacon sandwiches are not to be missed. A great vibe here on Saturday morning. Wonderful fresh food and produce and lots of activities. My kids used to love coming here on Saturday morning.

St. Lawrence Market it Toronto's "cleaner" market. Don't get me wrong, Kensington Market has it's appeal, but is you are looking for a slightly more upscale market then checkout St. Lawrence Market.

The st. Lawrence Market is a landmark in the heart of Toronto's downtown district. Here you will find vendors supplying fresh food produce Meats Fish etc. If you can't find it at the st. Lawrence Market it doesn't exist.

An interesting, fun market. Great food! We were there during the winter and it was still busy, I would imagine that during the summer it would be wonderful!

only negative thing i have to say about the market is the practice of vendors increasing their prices on the weekend. why is a peameal sandwich 30% higher on the weekend? very bad practice and shame on you carousel

The market is definitely not worth a visit. You couldn't spend an hour or so just looking at beautiful displays of meat, every type of fish and sea food you could imagine and the fruit and vegetables are amazing. If I lived in Toronto, I'd be shopping here.

You can not leave the market empty handed .. they have everything from fruit/veggies to meat, fish, spices, cakes/pies ... and the day wouldn't be complete without picking up lunch ... Peameal bacon on a bun! The sights, smells, the people .. truly an experience you would not want to miss

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.
