A very interesting market, with foods from many cultures, and lots of variety in meat and produce. There are a few crafts booths and the building is pretty unique as well. If you are in the area, it is worth a look. We were just playing tourist ... would be more useful if you are grocery shopping.

Found this place through Tripadvisor. It was in downtown and therefore near my hotel. Its a real active market, mainly shops sell meat, see foods and cheese. It was interesting, recommend seeing that!

Great place to shop for fresh produce. There's a merchant who sells a large variety of rice, including forbidden rice. Try the peameal bacon sandwich. Yummy!

I come from Cleveland, Ohio where we have the world famous West Side Market. So, I was totally indulging my husband who very much wanted to visit here. Is it touristy? Yes. However, lots of locals were there for a quick lunch and the food vendors really were incredible. We decided to get small bites from different vendors and it... More

Even if you don't really need to buy meat, cheese, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables, The St. Lawrence Market is a fun place to walk around and just take in all the diversity and culture. There is so much going on. On the weekends, musicians play at various locations throughout. I am of European decent and there is a little... More

This place is closed on Mondays. We learned the hard way! We came back the next day and spent about 3 hours during lunch time. The marked is packed at lunch time, so if you want to visit it, try before 11:30am or after 1:30pm. Locals eat at the St. Lawrence Market everyday of the week. They have a good... More

Great ambiance, food and people. It's a great place to come with a family visiting as you can pick up good cheap eats. The fish place at the end of the market serves terrific food.

Try the Pimeal Bacon Sandwich! Lovely! Lots of independent food and souvenir stores to browse around - all indoors (great in all weather!). Can get quite busy depending on the time of day

I wouldn't go out of my way to get here but worth a peek if you're in the area. Some good food to try for a quick bite to eat.

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.
