An interesting food market but there are better - Vancouver was 100 times better but still worth a quick look around.

Checked out this place before going to the Blue Jays Game. I have always heard it was a great place to visit. I think it must be bigger on the weekend for not a lot going on Friday. There was lots of place to eat and buy food and all looked really yummy. My husband and son were impressed with... More

The market once was a place to get a good deal on some locally sourced veg and odds and sods. Now it is a loud, crowded place crammed with tourists strategically stopping at random to block as many people as possible, pseudo hipsters smelling of patchouli, and very polite street people hoping for a meal. Overall, meh, not my cup... More

Such an amazing market with any kind of meat, vegetables and fruits you can think of, and it is always so clean and tidy and organized. They have so many variety of cooked food, you would have a hard time choosing what to have for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This has been described as the best indoor market in the world, I think, but I am not very sure of it. There is a lot of variety, a lot of choice and the food is great but it is not the best market on this planet. Usually VERY crowded on Saturdays it is also the day for the farmers'... More

The market contains a wide variety of stalls for a quick meal or foods to take along for later. The atmosphere is dynamic!

St. Lawrence Market is quintessential Toronto. The market dates back to 1803 and has been ground zero for locals and visitors to not only buy an incredible variety of fresh meats, fish, vegetables and groceries for home but also a quick bite for lunch. If you're looking to grab something to eat you can't go wrong with the incredible selection... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood 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.
