I didn't find anything super awesome incredible, about this place. We were there for an hour or so ... prices were pretty high for everything. Had lunch there pricey ... didn't matter where we ate there were 11 of us so we just had meat sandwiches.

Recently visited the market on a hot and humid Saturday morning. It certainly is the place to buy all you fresh produces for the week, slightly higher in price than you local grocery store but if you like to support local farmer this is the place to come. The selection of fresh fish is just amazing, being from the East... More

Not what I expected! A fresh food market but not too big. Lots of cheeses and meats and aromas. Really good pizza

Great food stalls and little eateries. It was much bigger than I had imagined. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food, fresh fruits and vegetables sold here. It is a great place to see both the locals and the tourists shopping and eating.

Had a wonderful time having lunch with my family at St. Lawrence Market. Fresh products and fresh catch from sea. It was lively atmosphere and lots of variety to choose from .

This is a great place to go and mingle with the locals. There is an excellent selection of items from meats, mustards & cheeses. It did not have a wide selection of produce, though.

A great indoor market, worth a visit in the evening or morning if you are in the area. The market is full so there is lots to see, it should have everything you need.

I used to live just north of here in a condo and we would shop Sat mornings, that is until the Loblaws opened up just south of there. There are some hidden gems like the portuguese churrasqueira near the upper level North West entrance or Busters Fish house. However most of the places are a tourist trap with rip off... More

The area is very cool. Lots of nice architecture nearby. The market is indoor on two levels. There was almost everything you need with fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish.. I found the prices to be relatively expensive. Almost like Granville Island in Vancouver price wise. Everything was good except the sirloin steak which was tough when BBQ. The rest was... 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.
