Packed and bustling but better for it. Interesting place, shame we were only there to look around, not buy.

Our 3 teenagers went into bored mode pretty quickly though so we curtailed our visit a little.

We visited this market on a Saturday at 9am. It opens at 8am on Saturday. Not open Sundays or Mondays. Open during the week 9am-5pm. We parked at 2 Church street at a Green P and they have a Saturday special- $1 for 2 hours. It’s only a 5 minute walk to the market. There is a second St Lawrence market across the street. It’s small and has only fruits and vegetables. There was no screening upon entering. But masks are required. There’s two floors. We bought lots of fruits and vegetables. There’s lots of meat vendors, fish, cheese vendors and bakeries. Some that sell cheese and pastries. We bought a Peameal bacon sandwich in a bun at Paddington’s Pump for $6.75. And a roast beef sandwich. The food was delicious and the price is reasonable. It’s best to come here when they open. We got here about 9 and some vendors had long lines. We visited around an 1 hour and half. It’s a popular tourist attraction and a Toronto Landmark.

This is a great spot to spend some time wandering around and browsing the goods; plenty to see and buy. The majority is inside so good to visit if weather isn’t great.

The architecture of this place is cute, and it’s a beautiful and spacious building.

The only thing that was disappointing was all the meat for sale. Maybe I don’t visit enough food markets, but I didn’t think that many people still consumed pork. Hopefully that will soon change.

It’s a great place for a Saturday morning visit. Numerous artisan stores selling meat, fish, cheese, bread and seafood. Not sure you can spend 3 hours as TripAdvisor suggests but maybe an hour or two if you are a slow or hesitant eater.
There are two floors and another adjacent location for fresh vegetables, right across the street in a big tent.

Beautiful and historic market in the big city of Toronto!

There are many vendors who appear to have been situated at the market for some time now! Lots of pride amongst many of the vendors!

We were told the market was considered the "Best" by National Geographic. Funny. I wonder what year that was.
It was nice, some very interesting stuff, but no match for Boston's Haymarket.

I kind of like this place when I visited Toronto in Sept 2019, although I don’t enjoy going to markets in real life. There are so many food stuffs, ready-to-eat food and souvenirs. There are so many types of food to try. So come here hungry. And you walk a bit further from the market around 8 mins you will reach the Queens Quay. The scenery here is spectacular where you can see the view of Lake Ontario, massive like a sea.
