Don't leave downtown Toronto without stopping here!

Some of the freshest cheeses, fruit and meats and friendliest vendors ever. You can sample some too.

Went on a Sunday (food places are closed) and was able to go antiquing. Some places were quite expensive but it was still fun.

I was quite excited to visit this market but found it a little disappointing. The line for fish and chips was too long(so I'm sure it's great) so ate elsewhere. Food was good. There are a lot of choices though.If you want some cured meats or sausages this would be the place to go. The limited seating was full so... More

One of the better markets around. Lively, fun, good food and lots of additional vendors outside and around the area in the summer. The overall neighbourhood is a good area to check out with lots of restaurants and the flatiron building

Great place to go for lunch! You can eat your way through the market. Individual vendors selling their wares. Fabulous sandwiches! If you want to take home groceries to make a meal...they have everything you could want from meat, fish, pasta, bread, and vegetables. Good prices too!

Great fish and chip place and so much more. They even have cooking classes and all the Ingredients comes from the market. Closed on Sunday and Monday. The... More

The fish markets always have plenty of fresh fish. Pricing is on the high side, but you simply cannot beat the freshness. The bakeries and produce market downstairs have better selection and price. Buster's Sea Cove is must if you're a seafood fan. Fresh and delicious! On Saturday, sometimes you may run into a string quartet of young musicians. Treat!

A fantastic urban market with immense charm in the heart of the city. An abundant array of fresh produce shops, bakeries, butchers, cheese shops and small retailers offering house wares, souvenirs and crafts not to mention a wide array of food stalls. My personal favorite is to grab a peameal bacon sandwich at Carousel Bakery or a veal parmesan sandwich... More

You can find anything here! You will find this market so unique. It makes grocery shopping an international adventure. Such a historic feel and presence as you shop and explore as our ancestors did!

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.
