What a neat experience. We went early in the morning and had the Peal meal bacon sandwich at one of the vendors. Very affordable and filling. We had our 16 year old son with us and he enjoyed the entire experience. Be sure to go downstairs to see all the vendors.

A huge range of meat, fish, fresh vegetables and fruit as well as cheese. If you have access to a kitchen during your visit to Toronto it is definitely worth sticking up here. There are also a number of places to eat and get a coffee or speciality tea. We ate at Crepe it up, which served up amazing gluten... More

Markets are great places to mingle with locals. There are samples here of local favorites, don't leave without having a butter tart and a peameal sandwich!

Once you find the market you can't help but enjoy walking around here. Lots of places to grab a snack and the market staff are very helpful and informative. Try the pea meal bacon butties, mmm.

Although a visitor to Toronto many times, we only recently made it over to the St. Lawrence Market on a Saturday morning. This is an excellent market with a great many vendors and lots of food. An iconic Toronto landmark and a great place to have a yummy snack.

Been here many times for lunch and weekend market trips. Great choice and variety for everything you could want. Christmas free range turkey to back bacon on a bun. Great for visitors and great for residents. History all around you.

A busy, urban market where you will find everything needed for home cooking, as well as enough prepared food counters to keep everyone happy during a day of touring. A large organic produce shop, as well as butchers and souvenir stands. There is even a raw food cafe which looked amazing. Everyone in our family was happy and able to... More

Don't eat lunch at a restaurant! Walk around here and find some terrific fruits and veggies, cheeses, meats, waffles, crepes, whatever. If it's nice, there's a park across the street; take your food and eat there. If it's not nice out, there's plenty of noisy, crowded and absolutely wonderful seating inside. This is the kind of experience that brings you... More

Great place to visit and learning about the market on one of the tours. Stop in and have breakfast and lunch, then grab some goods for dinner!

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.
