“Culinary eye candy”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

A treat for the eyes and the senses. The market presented a varied selection of food and merchandise in an historic setting. Fresh produce, bread, peameal bacon sandwiches and more. Good people watching and friendly locals ...a mush see venue.

“Peameal on a bun”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

It's a must when visiting the market. Fun place to amble around - one of the largest markets I know of in Canada.

“Great for food lover”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

St Lawrence Market is an amazing place to go to if you are a foodie. I didn’t buy anything its very expensive, but you can find few great deals. The best time to go is during a weekend morning that’s when its feels like an actual market. If you are in Toronto it’s a must visit. The area looks nothing like the rest of Toronto which is great. You will definitely run into some amazing people (which I have).

“Charm, affordability, and great food.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

A short walk from the central business district is the 200-year old St. Lawrence Market. A charming must see for tourists and locals. National Geographic rated it number one in the world for food quality. Cliche warning: A cornucopia of food awaits! The Carousel snack bar's peameal bacon sandwiches are a must--they're not cheap but they're really good. The meat selection from the various butchers is the champion of the place--great prices and top quality. The green grocers also have top quality produce at decent prices. If you're on a tight budget and want something to fill you up, go to St. Urbain's Bagel on the southeast side of the market, buy a bagel for .75 cents then walk to the green grocer at the northeast side and get a $1.50 fruit cup. You're good to go. There are also a variety of lunch counters downstairs--some very popular. And if you want a beer, there's Paddington's Pub at the front on Front St. Oh, and if you're wondering what the old building jutting into the Market is, it is Toronto's first or second City Hall.
