I live in a small town, and travel by train to Toronto to visit friends and get a good injection of "city life" ~ and since it’s only a ten minute walk from the train station -- every trip on my way back home, I head over to the St Lawrence Market to fill my eyes (and basket) with goodies – such as lean Ontario lamb shanks -- amazing artisan cheeses from Québec and elsewhere – spicy sausages, yellow mangos, black figs and big bunches of sweet basil -- and everything is always fresh and wonderful.
It’s a fun place to go and a genuinely excellent place to shop -- a bustling historic fixture in the downtown core, that is well-used and well-loved -- and I’ve bumped into a couple of TV cooking celeb’s strolling the aisles, (which is always a treat) and people are (mostly always) smiling and friendly – and why not!!!
There are tons of great cheese/meat/bakery/fruit & veg shops – as well as a tiny but good tea stall – and a place that you can pick-up a little chunk of BC smoked salmon – and of course – and my last purchase is always some kind of freshly made sandwich for the ride home (BBQ chicken / roasted peameal bacon or an eggplant parm sandwich – that’s enough for breakfast AND lunch!!) ...but careful!... it’s not open Mondays... boo hoo...
