The St Lawrence market is a large 2 floor indoor market selling a great variety of products : included is meat, produce, spices, housewares, wine and a good variety of food to each on site. Prices seemed reasonable. Do not visit on Sat morning as the market is wall to wall people. Hope this helps.

All the smells of traditional porducts, cheese, maple syrup or candies, meat and quite a few restaurants, it's all there!Add some souvenir shops for magnets, postcards or even mugs and you will enjoy some eating and shopping at the St.Lawrence!

St. Lawrence Market is one of the worlds famous market in Toronto. I was very excited to visit this market as I'm a shopaholic. But when I actually stepped inside the place I freaked out 😑 This market is famous for most meat and some diary products. The foul smell of meat can be felt from each corner and a... More

What a wonderful market for the freshest food you can ever get. This market has been so popular for years and is one of the most well organized and cleanest markets I have ever been to. Many vendors will give out samples and almost everyone who comes to shop ends up eating there too. We always have the peameal bacon... More

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.
