On our first morning in Toronto we wondered down to the markets for breakfast, and it was worth the walk, the smell of freshly cooked baked goods, and to my boyfriends delight some sort of a meat sandwich all of which was available at about 9am. The food was the main attraction but there was tourist stores as well.

I could dare to say these are one of the best markets I've been in my life: full of life, delicious foods, clean and as organised as a market can be, two levels of international and local cuisines, places to seat outside in the veranda, great atmosphere. It has it all. This is a MUST while in Toronto.

I went with my husband to check out the place and we went 1 hour before closing, which was great because it was less crowded and we got great deals on end of day items. It's a cute little market to wander through, however the prices are a little expensive for the items. But worth it for an experience. Great... More

Live in the burbs and having a BBQ party, go to the st Lawrence market to get your meats, vegetables, fruits and cheese. Grill some meat, or but kabobs already prepared, grab some fresh veg to grill and finish with a mixed cheese and fruit plate. While I think about it you better get some shrimp and some antipasto for... More

We loved our first trip here so much last summer we brought my parents back up to enjoy a Saturday visit. Bustling and full of delicious foods. I can’t imagine anyone coming to Toronto and not visiting this gem of a place. Come hungry for sure, and bring some bags to take home all the goodies you will buy.

The food is very, very good. We had fish and chips, crab, meat and everything was excellent. A food court with top quality products.

This is your typical city market. Heaps of great food all under one roof - fruit, bakery, butcher, seafood, wine, deli, and much more. It's about 20 minutes walk from Union station. There are a few tables and chairs where you can sit, rest and eat.

A great place to go for fresh food. It is worth money spent. I could go every weekend with family or friends.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
