I used to go there to get my fresh fruits and vegetables, then the cheese and bread on Saturdays. If you go to the basement, you could grab something to bite and there is a fresh juice place that I go to every time I go there. This is something I miss in Toronto. Not many restaurants offer fresh juices. I have got used to it now.. initially I used to ask for that every time I walk into a restaurant! My daughter used to warn me rather remind me every time too!

Anyway, recently my husband and I walked to Lawrence Market on a Sunday to see the place turned to a huge antique market. Although I am not one to buy second hand stuff I truly enjoyed browsing through.. I was shocked to see them selling everything.. from buttons to jewellery! You can even buy your diamond jewellery there! I would not do that for sure! There were quite a lot of hand made Bohemian Crystals, Waterford, Baccarat, Royal Doulton and many more were available to buy at a cheap price! There were lots of antiques, board games, books, and many more to see and grab if it is your thing to do! It is worth the visit and the vendors are very friendly too.. I think the best time to go is around 11 a.m. they take time to set it up and close at 5 p.m.

I would not recommend you to take your little ones. There is not much space between the isles to take a stroller. I have never tried the wash rooms either! To tell you the truth, I am scared to even venture on that route! ha ha! Do give about 3 hours to nicely browse through the whole place.

See it for yourself!

This is a good functional place to buy groceries, fruits and veggies. You can also get decent light food to eat on the spot. There is a decent selection of produce. The aisles are pretty narrow and hold onto your wallet or purse - pickpockets are not unknown. It isn't very exciting and is hardly worth going to as a destination unless you want to shop.

This completely indoor public market is a perfect place to get out of the cold in winter! Eclectic merchants are scattered over two floors and one-of-a-kind finds are around every corner. The crowded venue adds to the energy and buzz.
