This place is a good place to have a quick snack/something quick to eat but nothing other than that. It does not feel authentic and more of a trying to be local yet touristy place.

We went there on recommendation and without a doubt it's interesting with some fantastic stalls, particularly the food stalls! It was very busy though and difficult to actually stop to look at anything.

The St Lawrence market reminds me of my childhood stopping in Toronto. The selection has always been great. There is a huge selection of meats.

Fresh pasta seafood not worth your money fresh fruit (delicious avocado and strawberries) I personally enjoy the basement portion of the market more. A lot of local artists and businesses that we should be supporting - but be careful of the jewllery sellers that say things are hand-made. shop smart!

Moved here 2+ years ago and soon learned that this is THE market to hit for a great food experience and when visitors come to town. Walking amongst the many meat, seafood, fruit, vegetable, bakery vendors and picking out just the right meal is a great way to spend a morning and makes the meal for your guests that much... More

Large variety of meat and fish products including take-away and ready to eat pastas and noodles which can be enjoyed in the seating area just outside the market.

This market has just about every food imaginable. It is very crowded and has limited sedating, but we enjoyed walking around and seeing all of the delicious food they had to offer. We wished we nada great market like this closer to home...

We visited here twice whilst in Toronto it is a fab place for foodies and all the food on offer looked amazing. we tried Peatmeal Bacon rolls and then had on the second visit pulled pork burritos which were outstanding. Brilliant place not to be missed.

This market has been around for over 50 years - parking is always a problem and it needs a 'face-lift' to make it more modern - still a nice place to visit, minus the crowds.
