St Lawrence Market

Toronto's sensational St. Lawrence Market has been a neighborhood meeting place for more than 200 years. The restored, high-trussed 1845 South Market building houses more than 50 specialty food stalls including cheese vendors, fishmongers, butchers, bakers and pasta makers with lots of action and yelling of prices in silly voices.

Inside the old council chambers upstairs, the St. Lawrence Market Gallery is now the city's exhibition hall, with rotating displays of paintings, photographs, documents, and historical relics. On the opposite side of Front Street, the North Market building houses a farmers' market on Saturday and an antiques market on Sunday.

Overlooking the market is the glorious St. Lawrence Hall, which can be seen for blocks. Considered one of Toronto's finest examples of Victorian classicism, the building is topped by a mansard roof and a working, copper-clad clock tower.

Practical Info

The St. Lawrence Market sits on Front Street in the Old York neighborhood, walking distance from the lakefront, between Jarvis and Market streets. You can also get here by subway, bus, and streetcar. Nearby attractions include the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Distillery District, and Harbourfront Park. The best time to come is Saturday morning, when the farmers come to drop off their goods.
