If you are in Toronto, get out an walk to the St. Lawrence Market. It is filled with culinary delights, produce, meats, seafood, bulk ingredients and local specialties. It's a super place to get a snack or lunch. If you are a visitor looking for a special gift to bring home with you, there are plenty of ideas here as... More

I visited the St Lawrence Markets during the week and while they are very nice they're not terribly big and there are many better markets in the world. I'd put other things in Toronto much higher on the must see list, but if you're in the vicinity it's definitely worth a visit.

This is apparently the world's oldest market. Very charming, and worth a visit. Lots of vendors, and this is the sort of place where I would do my grocery shopping if I lived in Toronto.

We were on a hop on/off bus and nearly did not get off here. As it turned out it was one of the more interesting sites we visited in Toronto. A Perfect place to visit, browse and graze. Fresh food markets are fascinating to wander through and this one was no exception. Not only was there plenty of farm, fish... More

We always enjoy visiting the St. Lawrence Market. We enjoy the varied foods available to purchase & cook at home or prepared there. The atmosphere is entertaining & interesting. It can get crowded but that is part of the fun.

So much to do and see here. Lots of artisan foodstuffs. It is definitely catered more towards the locals than tourists. Had a delicious peameal sandwich at one of the stalls, highly recommended!

Yum! I bought some sushi grade tuna here. It was expensive, I admit, but it is well worth it because it's very hard to find that quality of fish elsewhere. I ended up slicing it up and eating it as sashimi and it was super fresh. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. It's a fun place to just walk... More

30 minutes was not enough time there but that is what we were told by our tour guide. We had a super breakfast of pea bacon rolls as advised by locals having brekkie there - the best !

St. Lawrence markets are a must see experience when visiting Toronto. The markets are close to the distillery area. Beautiful fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses, small goods, confectionery, coffee everything you'd expect at a farmers market. Tip: The toilets are downstairs and there's two restrooms. One with only one toilet. Skip the line and find the other toilets near one... More

Lawrence St Market, especially on a Saturday, is a must! So much to see and sample. Great artisans, food and other merchants. Make sure to make it your destination when in Toronto.
