We visited in January and the market did live up to the hype that we'd heard about it. All types of food on display and for sale. Fish, breads, fruit and deli. Downstairs is a bakery that sells freshly baked pastries which are great for breakfast, especially sat at the tables with coffee. On Sunday there's an antiques/ collectors market... More

Centrally located in Toronto, large crowds on weekends. Lots of variety of foods, take out , or eat in. Many farmers from Ontario will be there early setting up . A great experience if you are in Toronto on the weekend and/or during the week. Worth a trip. Bakery items available as well.

Lovely place to wander around on a Saturday morning whether you're shopping or not. Food displays are spectacular, especially butchery and bread stalls. Would definitely recommend getting a breakfast roll with peameal bacon, it will see you through the whole day! Coffee has also been good from all the stalls we have visited.

Seems like a great place to get fresh local food if you live in the area. I thought it was going to be more of a farmers market to get snacks and treats so I was a little disappointed. Nice building and atmosphere so worth a look but don't go expecting to find lots of food to eat right away.

It does not offer very touristic attraction in the cold weather. There are restaurants and cafeteria with good taste foods. It is a good place to buy meat and fish though. I would recommend the Paddington's pump restaurant dishes and pancakes in the morning. Warm and welcoming staffs and a good taste breakfast make your day great.

A must visit. Just about everything connected with food under one roof. Fresh fish; huge variety of cheeses; fresh cuts of meats and lots of fresh vegetables. Even have associated kitchen accessories. Hungry- healthy fresh foods for lunch. Easy to spend a few hours exploring the place.

I hadn't been to the market in quite some time but my daughter asked me for a ride and I couldn't say no. It was exactly as I remembered it. Every manner of food was speaking to me from various display cases and counters. Fruit, vegetables, fish, fowl, cheeses and meats. Each beckoned with the promise of a gastronomic feast.... More

I love the market- we usually buy our meats there. The fish is amazing and always fresh. They also have restuarants and take out spots. Great place to see. downstairs is also a must- alot of people miss out.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
