Took family visiting from outside Canada to St. Lawrence Market after reading about the world renouned bacon sandwich at the "Carousel bakery". A soft bun- nothing special- with generous amount of back bacon... that's it!!! no tomato, lettuce or anything to make it more exciting... very salty and dry as well as expensive. An intimidating experience with foreign visitors.

I am a habitual visitor of the St. Lawrence Market. Simply put, it has something for everyone. Seafood, steaks, chicken, cheeses, veggies, a foodie paradise. The market offers up the cheap; the organic and everything in between. Carousel Bakery is legendary for their Peameal on a bun, DELICIOUS! I do recommend getting a fountain iced tea there, a sugary treat to accompany the salty goodness of your peameal. The organic food available is substantial, from veggies, to meats, to cheeses there is organic something for everyone. The breads available are also endless at a numbers of bakeries. There is ethnic flavors available from Mexican to Chinese to Indian to about any of the cultural diaspora inhabiting Toronto. It's just an awesome experience and it is no wonder that the Market is considered to be one of the best Marketplaces in the World. Not Canada, the World. It is really an experience to try out, especially on the hustle and bustle day of Saturday when the place is packed.

My mom & I really enjoyed the St. Lawrence Market. There was just so much in this market. I just love seeing how the "locals" live & this is a great way to experience it. The locals were working the marketplace & also shopping there too. I bought deli meat, fruit,baklava & a smoothie while I was there. We also bought T-shirts & magnets to bring home. I am a fan of the St. Lawrence Market!

Lots of food choices, worthwhile a visit. It was a Saturday and while there were a lot of people around, it never felt overwhelmingly crowded. Prices were decent but there were very few free samples. Worth it for a foodie as there were groceries, snacks and meals available.

Read the reviews about how nice this place could be, plus St Lawrence Market was voted as Top 25 markets by Food & Wine, but the market failed to meet my expectations. It couldn't be compared to Pike's place (Seattle), Quincy Market (Boston) or even Vancouver's Granville Island. There was a shop that sells "world famous" peameal bacon that cost $6 and seemed that many celebrities have frequented the shop. However, it wasn't extraordinarily good. I spent only 30-40 mins here.
