lots of delicious food and fun things to buy - excellent buskers as - saw Loreena McKennitt busking here before she began a big harp playing star
Where to start? This place is a must visit for tourists, locals and Ontarians alike. It's abuzz with energy, activity and an eclectic mix of people products.
Must tries from the lower level: Fresh juice on the, wicked salads with to die for dressing, fantastic baked good. From the upper level: CRAB CAKE SANDWICHES at the fish and chilp shop at the back of the market!! fresh pasta, canneloni, lasagna, spinach stuffed ravioli :), Check out the olives and the fresh meats too.
This place is amazing!!
Can spend the whole day down here looking at the different offerings in the market. They have everything: bakery, fruits, veggies, meats, crafts, clothing, coffee etc. If you come here the day before a long weekend, they sell off their fish at a discount. Spend the day here, then go upstairs and get some fresh scallops & grouper for dinner. Worth the hassel of parking.
"Amazing", "farm-fresh" food makes for a "wonderful Saturday morning experience" (with a particularly strong "selection for the early-riser") at this weekly market that's been operating across the street from the "landmark" main St. Lawrence Market since 1803; the "farmers are friendly", helping to create a "fantastic atmosphere", with "fresh fruit, vegetables and meat" plus "many samples" and... more
This market is a local favorite for fresh produce, and it even draws people who live a good distance away. The peameal-bacon sandwiches are famous. Check out the gallery on the second floor, a quiet retreat from the busy market, where exhibits about the city are mounted, with free admission. Hours are Tuesday through Thursday from 8am to 6pm, Friday from 8am to 7pm, and Saturday from 8am to... more
This handsome food market is, in fact, two tiers. The primary market runs throughout the week in a vast building constructed around the facade of the second City Hall, built in 1850. Vendors sell meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, and dairy products, as well as other foodstuffs. The second one operates Saturday only, across the road, and is busy with local farmers and their wares. The best time to... more
I've done it... I've moved closer to the St. Lawrence Market!!! I wish I was even closer but my 20 minute walk is better than taking the TTC.
Forget my old review... Ugh. Such a newbie ;) Pemeal bacon, veal parmiagana and Busters are still a good staple but such a rookie/tourist move. Be sure to visit both the Farmer's market on Saturdays and the main building.
My new go to's (besides the... more
Is it one of the best markets in the world? I dunno about that. I do know I always bring tourists/visitors here and they like it.
There are two markets. The North building has farm-fresh produce, meats, eggs, cheeses, etc. They always have tables set up outside the building as well.
The south market is filled mostly with cheesemongers, purveyors of meats, and produce/fruit stalls. There are a... more
One of my favourite places to be on the weekend. It has quite a bit of a touristy feel but I always enjoy coming here for a peameal bacon sandwich or just shopping around for cheese and meats. They also have the farmers market on Saturdays which is nice. It's a very hectic environment in the morning but they have a good selection of fresh produce. It's a nice change than to go to your typical... more
This massive 19th century brick building is home to the city’s largest market. Open every day except Sunday and Monday, St. Lawrence Market is home to several dozen meat and deli stands, produce shops and fish stands–all offering an abundance of everyday and gourmet foods. Cheese and dairy foods, dry goods and a small selection of organic health foods are also available on both levels of the... more
Aside from all the fantastic
that Toronto has to offer, the St. Lawrence market is a great place to catch a bite to eat. The market consists of two buildings; the north building holds farmers’ markets every week and antique shops. The south market contains a gallery, restaurants, and food shops. The north market is currently undergoing renovations, and the new building should be erected by... more
The 'Food & Wine' magazine placed the St. Lawrence Market among the 25 best markets in the world. You won't find a better place in the town for fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and fish. Not to mention exotic foods from every ethnic corner. The historic St. Lawrence neighborhood also has over 50 vendors offering some of the best delicatessens and restaurants in the city, with a wide range of... more
