“Great shopping on a Saturday morning...early!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Always fresh breads and baking items, excellent selection of fresh meats, fish and cheeses. An enjoyable shopping experience - wish we lived closer so we could shop there more regularly. Definitely recommend going early, take lots of cash, and bring your own bags. We particularly like the butcher shops that will vacuum pack the meats by portion or however you request it - added bonus to keep things fresh and convenient.

“My favorite Toronto Market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you are visiting Toronto and like food, you have to come here for the experience - especially on Saturday. the energy is unbelievable. If you live in Toronto and like to cook or eat, it is worth the trek downtown. You can find almost everything here. My personal favorites - St Urbain Bagels, Chris, the Cheese Monger-best selection of cheeses from everywhere and they sample to help you select. The honey stall downstairs is another favorite - another great place to sample the myriad of honey varieties. Fresh meats and seafoods abound along with the best quality of fresh fruits and veggies in town.

“Amazing!! SO MUCH CHEESE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

St Lawrence Market was great fun, every cheese you can imagine plus every condiment, meat, bakery item you could ever want. An awesome atmosphere and great place to just wander and soak it up. It's in an amazing old building with beautiful architecture - definitely a place to visit if you are in Toronto.
