It's OK to walk through, nothing spectacular, but just go there. There are many booths to see and things to explore.

Fun market filled with closely packed stalls. The wares are not particularly unique and more designed to meet the needs of locals, rather than tourists. Also, the market is not particularly less expensive for anything - especially meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. That said, you can get more items in one place that at other locations in the city; although... More

You can spend hours wandering around the St Lawrence Market, finding everything you were looking for, and a whole bunch of other things you didn't realize you were looking for

Easy to access on Front St from King or Union Subway stations. Good fruit and vegetable market with meat of all kinds and cheese from all regions. Downstairs is a takeaway food area with lots of selections from around the world. Very popular at lunch time and with bus tours. Good souvenir shops with a good selection of Canada goods... More

The area that the market is located in is a bit of a walk from the subway but the area is quite attractive with some nice eateries. The market itself has some good quality fresh produce but for a visitor, it doesn't rank with Ottawa, Vancouver or even come close to Adelaide, Australia.

St Lawrence is a very colorful and large market with every food imaginable. There are some tables, so food can be purchased and consumed at the market. It is worth seeing.

The St. Lawrence Market at the corner of Front and Jarvis Streets in downtown Toronto has been in continuous operation since 1803. Mushroomed through the years into a sprawling complex that now covers the majority of a full city block. The original South Market (closed on Mondays) offering all things fresh, meat, poultry, fish, baked goods, fruit and vegetables, it... More

This is worth a look- wonderful selection of meats and fish etc at fantastic prices. If you are on a self catering trip, this is the place to shop. Fantastic steaks!! A very random collection of other traders eg jewellery, clothes, ethnic foodstuffs to try- nice building, a bit different - you can walk easily to the Distillery District from... More

If you have never been to Toronto or in fact if you are from Toronto. The St. Lawrence Market on the weekend is the place to be. It buzzes with fresh food and lots of aromas. There is even an outdoor market for the warmer seasons. There are amazing restaurants that use this fresh food and the food is yummy!
