A must see

Allow yourself lots of time to take it all in. Wish we had a market with this variety near home. Wonderful choice on everything you might want to eat.

We are from Philadelphia, and have the reading terminal market, which is far superior to this market. This market seemed small, and there was not that many places to grab a bite to each for lunch. It's more of a butcher market and seafood market for buying groceries. Now I am comparing this market, to our indoor market back home... More

Our hotel was within walking distance and we were so glad! The market is huge and full of great food vendors. We got there when they opened each day and had a fresh juice, smoothie, pea meal bacon sandwich, fruit, or bakery item depending on our mood. It was all there and everything was fresh and tasty. Grabbed some fruit... More

I LOVE food but didn't like this market. I am always open to trying new foods but never purchased anything here. Pretty disappointing to be honest.

The smells and sounds of an open air market indoors. The variety of offerings are amazing from crafts to fresh meat and vegetables. It always easy to find a vendor purveying prepared foods for a snack or even a full lunch.

St. Lawrence Market used to be a place Torontonians would go to do local shopping. Over the years it has become a tourist trap that is more than just expensive, it's outrageous. It is a beautiful building and a great place to visit to have a snack but if you miss this place on your trip don't shed any tears... More

This is a large building filled with fresh food, bakeries, butchers, etc. It reminded me of Reading Terminal in Philly. The colors of the local tomatoes were incredible. I had to try the PeaMeal Bacon Sandwich. It was okay but not enough meat as there was bread. Tons of great pastries though and I did pick up some fresh pepperoni.

Parking can be tough, but all in all, well worth it. The choice of meat and vegetables are the worth the trip, especially the quality

I've been to Pikes market in Seattle. It's not nearly as big or as diverse but it was a very nice market with fresh offerings and various vendors. It was more food based so it didn't have as many crafts/goods as Pikes. The foods were numerous. I had a fabulous matcha tea cold pressed shake while I was there

I love stopping here hearing the bustle of customers and the shouts of the vendors. All the different smells as you pass through and the willingness to share samples of their products for you to taste. They could tell you everything about what they've made with a genuine passion. There's a lot of love in these halls! I happily support... More
