Even though I agree with previous reviewees that this market is somewhat overrated and should not be seen as #1 in the world, it is in my view definitely worth a visit. The market has a lot of excellent food choices, especially for a quick breakfast or lunch. The market was quite busy on the Saturday when we visited, but... More

Fun market to visit. Great stores with fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, cheeses and other smaller shops with kitchen items, etc. Enclosed in a well ventilated area with plenty of room to move around. Purchased some fresh cherries and they were delicious. Definitely a great place to visit and find fresh locally gown fruits and veggies.

I can only assume that the St. Lawrence Market got its #1 rating from National Geographic because more people have been there than to other markets. Sorry, but in our experience, the Granville Island Market in Vancouver is better, as is the Byward Market in Ottawa.And if one were to include city markets in Spain, Italy and France, well, sorry,...

This is a brilliant market full of fresh food to buy and eat. There is tons of seafood, meat, cheese, and produce. Their are two floors, so make sure you check both of them out. Great place to grab a bite to eat or do some fresh grocery shopping, or even just to look around.

We visited St. Lawrence market to see what "the #1 food market in the world" was like. Fantastic food market with fresh and cooked food, and worth a visit for lunch or snack but that's where it ends.

Took a day trip to see what everyone is talking about. Wow lots of people but no pushing and shoving. Lots of great food to see and buy and I am sure you will find ANYTHING you may want to buy. The majority of the stores in the main building are Meat, Cheese, Seafood and Bakery items. Be prepared for... More

We spent nearly two hours walking around the various halls. Were very excited about all the great food offerings, especially the huge selection of meat. Prices seemed to be lower than in Vancouver.

We were here about 10 years ago and were blown away by St. Lawrence market. We were veryexcited to return and were disappointed. Not sure if the market changed or whether we've experienced so many markets worldwide since last visiting, but it just seemed lacking. There are several REALLY nice butcher shops, a couple of nice cheese shops and a... More

Whatever you choose and whenever you go- breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack- you can’t go wrong ! There are plenty of bread, deli, sandwiches, and prepared local specialties to choose from.. .Everything is delicious and made from long years of tradition and original recipes. In the morning you could have pastries, pick from Greek pitas, try large varieties... More
