Great place to spend and hour or two walking around seeing a wide variety of things for sale. We particularly like the honey booth down on the ground floor - they always are happy to give you multiple samples of the most delicious Australian/Tasmanian/French honey - which inevitably leads to us happily buying a couple tins. Good fun, and walking... More

We make the trek to the market every time that we are in Toronto on a Saturday. Vast array of meats, cheeses, baked goods and prepared foods - somewhat overpriced and definitely overcrowded. Still it's all part of the fun to see so many unique things in one place.

As visitors to the country staying at a local hotel, we popped in for a quick nosey and ended up having breakfast at Yianni's ! It was great to look around at the different food items for sale (would have loved to have bought and cooked/eaten one of the giant steaks). However it wasn't just food and we would encourage...

Even if you are not planning to actually shop, this place is really well worth a visit. Go hungry and try out a myriad of great food outlets, which cater to all tastes.

This is a lovely market for local residents, however as a tourist there is not a lot to see. Lots of fresh meat, seafood, veg and fruit. However, not somewhere I would visit again as a tourist.

If I lived in Toronto, I would visit this market every day, but rating as a tourist attraction, there is little to shine, unless you have a full kitchen to cook the meat etc. It's a great market, but you really need to be a local.

As a chef it is always nice for me to go down to this market. It has everything you could want to get a good meal going. Plus a few classic food stops to the eat and go. Peameal Sandwich ! @ Carousel Bakery

My family has a tradition of going here early Saturday mornings about 1-2 times a month, and I've always looked forward to it. There's lots of options for breakfast food, great produce and a variety of other stores. There's even a toy kiosk which I loved going to when I was little. I'll continue to go here when I have...

The market was full of wonderful things to take home to eat or they did have small snack bars. It is a must see for the trip!

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.
