We went to the market when we were exploring downtown Toronto. I'm glad I saw it, but I wouldn't spend any time going back I don't think. No negative experiences, it just wasn't anything spectacular. We have local markets where I am from, so I guess I just had higher expectations for this. Worth going to, but I wouldn't go... More

St. Lawrence Market is rated as one of the world's top food markets and with good reason. The variety of meat and produce available here is stunning. Butchers compete for your dollars with an amazing assortment of fresh meats; there are a number of wonderful bakeries, seafood counters and nowhere else in Toronto will you find such a collection of...

This place is a feast for the eyes and the palette. So many different foods from meats, fish, and cheese to chocolate and everything in between. Also some jewelry and tourist stands as well. I recommend the lobster rolls at the seafood restaurant at the far end....YUM!

What a great place to while away an hour or two. So much fresh produce at such fantastic prices. Wish they were in Guernsey as it was a joy to visit and see what was on offer. Great atmosphere too.

Spent the morning walking around Toronto's Distillery area and found our way to this grande market. Picked up some homemade bread, cheese, meats, grabbed a bottle of wine, and had an affordable hearty lunch with leftovers for later. This indoor market is huge! Any kind of meat, vegetables, breads, ready made foods you can find it here. Come hungry and... More

Just a few blocks east from Union Station and we were there, it had been many years since i was there. Lots of smells and lots of fresh produce. We stopped at a Crepe food stand and ordered crepes for breakfast. I had a fresh fruit crepe and it was delicious. We both enjoyed the breakfast. And stopped by to... More

Obviously it is a popular place! It was very busy. Love all the different meats, cheeses, foods, people. We hadn't went downstairs before. We wished we had a fridge in our room so we could have bought more. Lots of lunch choices.

St. Lawrence Market makes me happy. It's been rated as the number 1 food market in the world and I can see why. You can find pretty much anything here but I would recommend being at the Market when it opens to get the best items. That's not to say that you won't still get "the best" if you arrive... More

I have been going to the St Lawrence Market pretty much every Saturday since 1975. There is so much diversity of the foods available - local and from all over the world. The quality of the products and the friendly interchanges with the various vendors makes my Saturday morning the brightest of the week. Because i have been going there... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
