We went to go and check out the market as we will be relocating to Toronto in January 2017. Awesome market with great produce, meats and whatever else you may need. I will be a frequent visitor especially for the meats and cheese.

The place felt a little dirty and over crowded to me. It's nice to see for the first time, but don't think I would be a regular visitor unless there is something I just had to have.

This market actually has butchers, bakers, produce, cheeses, and flowers. While not as big as Vancouver's market, this is still the real deal. There are also some prepared food venders.

This is a great day at the market for everyone including kids. Great to buy fresh and organic foods and eat while there. In the heart of Toronto and a historic marketplace. When done, head to the Distillery District for a nice dinner or show. Right now, the European Xmas festival is on and is a sight to behold with... More

There were so many options for fresh foods and souvenirs! It is so big inside and so much to see! Make sure to bring your appetite because there are people handing out samples and places to grab food all over. We visited on a Saturday morning, and it wasn't super crowded at all! Love this place!!

Great atmosphere, and excellent food. Specially desserts. I have been in this place at least 30 times, and I haven't tasted even half of all the types of food that this place offers. 120% recommended for foodies, if you crave for homemade pasta, fish and chips, a slice of cake or pie, custard tarts, a peameal bacon sandwich, or simply...

Just a bunch of butcher shops and cheese shops and fish shops and bakeries. Super packed on a saturday. The famous peameal back bacon sandwich from Carousel bakery is good, but their veal sandwich is tough and cold and awful! Dont bother.

We visited this place around 6:30 p.m. on a Friday (they close at 7:00 p.m. that day). We had the chance to see all shops, buy some typical things from Canada and we even got a very good deal at one bakery in the lower floor, as they were selling all pastries for a "promotional" price (3 for $5 &...

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.
