Went with friends on a Saturday. Farmers market also open next door plus several stalls dotted about selling crafts. Great range of food to buy and try.

We went there because A. we like food markets and B. National Geographic one voted this market one of the best if not the best in the world. So expectations were very high. This market didn't disappoint. It is rather not a market where a...More

Worth a visit if your passing, decent food stalls serving a variety of produce. Would be a decent venue for lunch or a coffee stop.

Skip Loblaws and hit a real market. Not quite Rome or even Pikes Market, but a really enjoyable walking, smelling, seeing tour of great food and smiling vendors. Don't come hungry or it will get expensive.... Highly recommended.

I came here with high expectations, if National Geographic say it’s the best in the world, it must be pretty good. I was a little underwhelmed, the market is small in comparison to other big city markets, and while the main bases are covered, the...More

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

Probably not. I didn't really think it was worth going to at all, unless you actually want to go shopping in which case they had some nice fresh produce, but probably not so great at that time of the afternoon.

There aren't really restaurants in St. Lawrence Market, more like food stalls.
