I actually walked the market for 90 minutes as I cannot understand what people see in the market other than an outing. Parking impossible and expensive and the meat prices are so high and quality so low. If you are running out of things to do or see? Then go but it's a one star at best. I buy my... More

The word famous market is a great place for finding some of the best food Toronto has to offer. Mostly meats, seafood and produce with some specialty shops selling things like cheese and wine. The country bakery peameal on a bun is a must try. Use the mustard on the side. Kozliks mustard is great artisan mustard and stonemill bakery... More

This place reminds me of many French covered markets; a wide selection of carefully displayed foods and other goods, only much cleaner! There is a huge choice of foods to try and buy, and some nice cafes in which to relax. Worth walking down from central downtown, passing the modern blocks and old brick buildings including the flat-iron.

This is the place! I would also recommend coming here if you are still staying in an apartment or are looking for picnic items. Otherwise, as far as a tourist attraction, this market doesn't offer much.

Me and my visited Toronto last year in December 2016 to visit the St. Lawrence Christmas Market. We were not disappointed at all. It was great. The vendors were respectful, polite, and very welcoming. Great food too! They had these fireplaces areas were you can drink hot chocolate, and relax with family. It was relaxing. I never visited the Market... More

This is the place I used to go when I lived there and when in Toronto, I always visit. Grab a coffee and walk around and explore the many shops downstairs and the cheese and meat markets on the upper level. The service is very friendly and you just don't want to leave. They have very reasonable prices and offer... More

I have visited the market several times, I found it as the canadian version of mexican markets, lots of activity, colours flavours, fresh food, the best bread, many organic products. The market is closed on Sundays but then the attraction is the Antiques Market!, love it! good prices and a lot of fun! The neighborhood is an historic place in... More

Voted number one food market in the world?! I'm so there! Massive market with lots to see, sample and buy. I live in Toronto, and used to shop at SLM every Saturday with my room mate, when I first moved here. The main building food market is where I usually ventured. The layout of the place was easy to maneuver... More

The Saint Lawrence Market is a stellar array of culinary must sees. Have cheese, olives, produce, smoked meats and fish from all over the Country and enjoy the diversity that Toronto is famous for. Downstairs you can buy just about any kind of rice you have ever heard of, foods from south america, mexico, and the south of France. Where... 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.
