The St Lawrence market is one of the unique places in downtown Toronto. Its a great place to shop for weekly meat and fish and cheese and breads. But its also a great place to waunder around and just have a bite. Adds to the color or our great city!

Head down very early. Gets crowded. Grab a breakfast sandwich there (peameal bacon is popular). Everything your heart desires is there. Cheeses, choice meats, preseasoned meats, breads and cakes. Check out the produce and farm eggs across the street.

One of the best food markets in the world, especially on Saturdays, when the "north" farmer's market across the street is open as well. The market is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Meat, fish, vegetables, cheese, bakeries, delicasseen, gourmet foods from the world over, kitcheware, restaurants and snack bars - you name it, it's here. Make sure you vistit upstairs... More

The St. Lawrence Market is a neat place. All of these vendors under one roof make for some fascinating sights, sounds, and smells. It was a lot of fun to walk around and check out, and it's a great activity for a rainy day (indoor). There are some great food stands (I highly recommend the shrimp po' boy and clam... More

St. Lawrence market is to Toronto as Pike Place is to Seattle or Granville island is to Vancouver. Great food and lots of samples to try. The smells alone make the trip worth it. The vendors are just cheeky enough that it has entertainment value as well. Take shopping bags and if you don't have a place where you can... More

After having grown up in the area, St. Lawrence is always a great place to go back to. One of the best markets I have ever been to. I would recommend it more for groceries (good cheese, organic produce, etc.) than sitting down for lunch.

If you have a hour or so to spend the market makes for a great place to grab a bite. The Carousel Bakery and their pea meal bacon sandwiches are a must try if you never have before. Their chicken parm sandwich is also pretty tasty. There are an array of meat stores, bakerys, and fruit stands. Something for everyone.

The majority of this place consists of vendors selling various meats, fish, and some fruits and veggies. There are a couple other vendors for some prepared foods or gifts but mostly it's a typical market. If you are a traveler skip it, it's definitely more useful if you are a resident.

Everything and more available here. Must try the famous Ontario Pea-meal bacon sandwich. Grandiose and Historic this market is a must see if in Downtown core.
