“I wish there were more public markets like St. Lawrence”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Public markets of this style are a rarity which is very sad. Buying good quality meat, produce, and grocery items directly from the shop owner rather that from some faceless corporate supermarket just feels so---right!

“Good food, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

I have been to St Lawrence several times and I enjoy it each time I go. I have been both with friends and on my own. The prices of foodstuffs and merchandise might not be the cheapest in the city, but the selection of specialty foods such as cheese, ice wine, honey, and meats is excellent. Great place to go gift shopping as well!

“So crowded!”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

The only time to shop there in relative comfort is 6:00 a.m. on Saturday. I would rather sleep.

“Go and see the awesomeness!”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

If your a bit of a foody and wandering round a fresh food market is your thing, you'll be in heaven here.

You name the food group and they have the best of the best in the market.

It's not open on a Sunday and a Monday I think and it's crowded all the time, but that goes to show how good it is.

If your visiting Toronto I don't suppose you'll want to buy steaks and fish to cook, however, to see what the place has to offer and to enjoy the food in the market at the food stalls at the back of the market it's very much worth the trip.

It's also located within the old part of Toronto so it's a nice place to kill a few hours and stop off near by for a coffe and a walk through the parks.
