Really not much to buy and take home as a gift or souvenir but definitely fun to look and also cool building and neighborhood. I had an Urbain Bagel sandwich for lunch/breakfast--yum, yum. The best ever cream cheese I have ever tasted. Lots of people were having fish lunch but I wasn't in the mood for fired fish. It looked... More

While some might consider it a place to get their groceries, for me, it's a fulsome experience that takes hours - and I love every second of it. The St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is truly fantastic. It is jam-packed with vendors, food stands and people, people ... and more people. I've heard some say they get up early on... More

A fantastic market in the city. Saturdays it opens at 5am and I believe it is open until 5pm. The best time to go is early in the morning to beat the rush and get the best produce/meat/seafood. There are many great places in this market, some of them being the rice place, the mustard place, the honey guy and... More

This place is a must go. So lively and exciting! I got to discover lots of new products. You can find foods from any country. In the lower level there are healthy and organic products. I was amazed by the freshly roasted coffee for just $1!! It was probably the best coffee I ever tasted. There is also a stand... More

There is nothing like getting up early on a Saturday morning and heading over to "The Market" - your senses are bombarded - fresh baked goods, fresh squeezed juices, amazing cheeses. There are two levels - and you'll also find artisans, souveniers. And yes, you will buy lots more than you planned on...

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
