I was told that this was one of the best markets in Canada and it is. Great building. Wonderful quality products or large number and variety. Produce and meats all very fresh. Would be a constant shopper if I lived nearby.

I was expecting something much more...maybe for the big city, it is great for the locals to get fresh produce(more expensive than where I come from) there were a few other places, a bakery or places to get something to eat. St.Jacobs is much better with a lot more to see and buy!

When you step in this market it's like stepping back in time. The ceiling has very high beams and peaks. The have a ton of selection of stuff from meats, fish, and vegetables to touristy items. It was also voted #1 food market in the world by National Geographic. Definitely worth a stop.

A fabulous historic venue packed full of local and exotic produce, baked goods and every other food imaginable - no other shopping is needed for the rest of the week

Liked the Food market section whcih had a lot of variety. The star fo teh show was the building - historic and grand. I am from vancouver and still prefer the Granville Island Market, but the St lawrence market is a close second. Did not like the underground section... closed in and dumpy.

We were visiting family in Brampton and made a trip into the market on a Saturday morning. Our major motivator was the peameal bacon sandwich at the Carousel Bakery. My husband and his sister were in heaven! If you like ham/"Canadian" bacon you will not be disappointed (I won't attempt to describe it beyond that). I am only sorry I... More

National Geographic didn't vote it as the world's best food market for nothing. Definitely worth a visit :)

Everyone should visit at least once. Lots of fruits and vegetables but also gift shops, international clothing, organic produce, fish, meat, just about everything. My favorite shop though was the wine store. There were free tastings and the staff was very knowledgeable. The market itself is very clean and there are a lot of restaurants in the area.

Its a nice market, great to look at, but focused on the high end foodie. There are no bargains here, except when they are giving out free samples. It's fun to browse from time to time, and if I was a visitor I'd definitely make a point of seeing it and trying some of the cooked food options. As a... More
