Great place to do some shopping or even take in the museum that is upstairs. This market has actually been here since 1803. I actually enjoy going here for the specialty cheese and there back bacon.

we visitied Toronto and wanted to see things which the locals see so decided to go to the market. I can honestly say I'm jealous of Torotonians or is it Torontoites. This market had everything with unbeleviable freshness of the meat and produce. It was like visiting several farms. The prices were very reasonable. It's too bad we were staying... More

Great place to shop for gifts (much cheaper than elsewhere). My fav is the peamill bacon sandwich! One bite and you'd be back for second... and I did!

This is excellent. Wander around here for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Work out a menu as you go, buy the best quality ingredients and cook back in your apartment. Huge selection of fresh good quality food sources locally and from around the world.

If you have not seen this market, take some time to wander through it. I am always amazed at the variety on offer. A visit to the cheese shops - pick up some Niagara Gold - is a must as is the honey shop on the ground level, especially if you like New Zealand honey. You can go for a... More

There is not a lot here to talk about, it's a nice experience but not much to buy. If you are staying downtown it's easy to walk to, about 20 minutes from the Sheraton centre.

We visited 3 times, since it was a short walk from our hotel. I love markets and seek them out on every trip. This one was was lovely. We tried a few different food items and it was lovely to visit on different days. On Saturday, there is an additional market open across the street. I didn't find it to... More

Some of the freshest cheeses, fruit and meats and friendliest vendors ever. You can sample some too.

Went on a Sunday (food places are closed) and was able to go antiquing. Some places were quite expensive but it was still fun.

I was quite excited to visit this market but found it a little disappointing. The line for fish and chips was too long(so I'm sure it's great) so ate elsewhere. Food was good. There are a lot of choices though.If you want some cured meats or sausages this would be the place to go. The limited seating was full so... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
