My partner and I recently visited St Lawrence Market on a Saturday. Definitely a great day to visit as Saturdays are when it's most busy, creating an electric atmosphere inside. Lots of great aromas and food options inside - a dangerous place to be if you're hungry as you may just purchase half the market! We enjoyed a couple of... More

I loved the St. Lawrence Market. So much selection, however, don't sit near the butcher's place, it's a little un-appetizing when the hang a skinned cow in the window. Other than that, loved it.

It was no surprise in Toronto that this market was voted #1 in the world. Full of butchers, bakers, greengrocers, and delicatessans, St Lawrence also includes specialty shops offering about every conceivable food item the world has to offer as well as clothing, jewellery, and souvenirs. It's friendly, colourful and fun. The market is located within a large historic building... More

Then this is the place to get it. A very popular place to shop. Highly recommended. Get there early to beat the crowds.

The sight, the sounds,most of all the taste is abundant. At every corner and aisle, there is always something that your own curiosity will devour.

St. Lawrence Market was one of the great times we had in Toronto. The place has lots of different stores that you could buy many quality food products. I would not recommend the bacon sandwich that is so famous there. I found it dry and not tasty. I would go for the pizza or the seafood/oriental kitchen. Also a good... More

I have mixed feeling about going to the market on a Saturday morning. On the one hand, this is the only chance to get the fresh produce and other goodies at the North Market, on the other, everyone in the downtown core and their mother know about it and it becomes incredibly crowded. If crowds make stress you out, perhaps... More
