"Take to the MARKET - Toronto..." Toronto Favorite Tip by james_sinton

Toronto General: 247 reviews and 248 photos

Favorite thing: Take to the MARKET - Toronto is home to (at least) two fabulous markets. They are both quite different however. The ST LAWRENCE MARKET, at Front and Jarvis, anchors the original downtown Toronto neighbourhood. It's filled with meat, fish, deli, and cheese vendors among many others (sandwiches, vegetables). The ethnic mix of Torontonians making their weekly purchases is quite astounding. Check it out on a weekday lunch hour or better, on Saturday (close on Sunday/Monday). Take the subway to KING and walk 3 blocks east to Jarvis and one block south to Front. Or take the 504 KING Streetcar to Jarvis. Check out the buildings on King and Front too.
