The Great St. Lawrence Market in Toronto


If you have ever been to St. Lawrence Market in Toronto, it shouldn't come as a big surprise that National Geographic rated the food hub as the #1 market in the world. Toronto's premiere market features over 120 merchants offering everything from baked goods and organic produce, to handmade jewelry and clothing. Since 1803, the market has been served as the cultural and culinary focal point of Toronto. As the living symbol of the city and its many residents, St. Lawrence Market is more than a place to discover great food; it's a place where you can connect, share stories, and find hidden, locally-produced treasures.The Market is teeming with activity every day of the week. Its collection of farmers, merchants, and artisans sell all sorts of edible and wearable items, including

·      Bulk Foods

·         Cheese & Dairy Products

·         Eggs and Produce

·         Cold Beverages

·         Coffee & Tea

·         Baked Goods

·         Flowers and Plants

·         Local Meat and Produce

·         Freshly Prepared Foods

·         Produce/ Fruits

·         Specialty items

The St. Lawrence Market Complex is comprised of three buildings: The South Market, the North Market and historic St. Lawrence Hall.  The North Market is home to the Sunday Farmers' market while the South Market hosts over 120 vendors six days of the week. St. Lawrence Hall hosts special events such as weddings and reunions. The St. Lawrence Market holds a number of public events throughout the year, but many sell out quick, so reserve a spot far in advance. You can partake in wine and cheese tastings, cooking classes, spirited dinner parties, and more. For a full list of events, visit the market's event calendar.
