If you visit the market on a Saturday there is also a Farmers Market, currently in a tent to the south of the main market building. There's a great stall for picking up farm produced maple syrup in colours and all sizes upto gallon jugs. Well worth a visit if your in town.

Fantastic market in the old part of Toronto. The upstairs in mostly fresh food and downstairs is delicatessen, bakery and other goods. Don't expect many eating options tho.

This market has food from all over the world and it's all pretty fresh. You can find nearly anything you need here from spices to types of fish you've never heard of. There are also local restaurants inside the market that have fresh food and everyone I have been to is amazing.

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.
