“Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

I really like St. Lawrence Market, especially in the summer. There are busking musicians that play on the weekends and plenty of sites and shops. Downstairs, there is a kiosk making Philly Cheesesteaks that is a veritable institution as I've been going since I was a kid.

People visiting Toronto need to check this place out. Think the Ferry Building in San Francisco, but a little less posh and more lived-in.

“Deals!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

The farmers market is remarkable, so fresh and I love that it is all locally sourced. The antiques market is so much fun and they arent overpriced.

“Wish we have one in Chicago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Even if you're traveling and have no way to buy Tomahawk steak (or two) to take home with you, St. Lawrence Market is an awesome place to stroll through. It has all kind of food. Best of all, it has many delicious food vendors there, including Carousel Bakery for peameal bacon sandwich (though other sandwiches are just as delicious.) Or stop in at Paddington's for fish sandwich and cold beers.

Be sure to go downstairs, as there are much more vendors! We could have stayed all day :)

“Great Selection of Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

There is a great selection of food, coffee's and teas. There is a coffee roaster on the first floor. There are several restaurants as well and especially wanted to try the fish at Busters Sea Food but had just had a big meal prior to getting there. There is all sorts of nic nacks and handy work as well they have it all! You can spend all afternoon going through it.
