A great selection of food already prepared. Everyone can find something they will enjoy for lunch. The Italian sandwiches (Veal and Chicken) are fantastic. You can find them on the lower level.

Amazing displays of meats, fruits, vegetables and baked goods. We wished we had a kitchen in our hotel room to cook. The adults had seafood from Buster's Sea Cove for lunch and the children ate pizza from a nearby stand. Yum!

There's a window into a fridge with rows and rows of cow carcasses. That's how fresh the market is. It's a great scene to take in, with locals rushing around buying groceries and tourists dead stopping in walkways to take photos and gawk. If you're hungry, you'll find a snack of some kind to munch on. In the main St.... More

A Ukrainian stall, a South American shop with condiments , purple and giant corn... You get the picture. It's easy to get carried away, but a note of caution. The prices... More

This busy and colourful market is a great free activity. Browse the shops, try some samples, and enjoy some great photo opportunities. It is also a unique place to buy some delicious souvenirs and gifts. I visited in the afternoon, but next time I will try to go in the morning to witness the excitement and action at the beginning...

besides the amazing fresh seafood and shrimp at Busters (upstairs south wall), there is also pasta made on the spot right around the corner. Their sauce is delicious. Their variety of pastas are great. I regularly freeze both the sauce and the pasta. So many gems....freshly made Montreal style bagels....etc. Cheap parking south of the market about a block down...

Went to the fish and chips place right at the south side of St Lawrence Market and loved it. Casual vibe, watch out for the lunchtime lines.

Imagine a shopping center, for food... The St Lawrence Market. It is huge, they have everything, from cheese to meat to bread, you want it? They got it and it fresh! Best place to get all your fresh food and vegetables. Highly recommended!

An interesting market but more for locals who can buy food to take home and cook. There are a few places serving ready to eat food however not many. There are a few souvenir shops though.
