"Delicious sightseeing" St. Lawrence Market Tip by mikey_e
St. Lawrence Market, Toronto: 39 reviews and 95 photos
St. Lawrence market is another one of Toronto's historic shopping experiences but, unlike Kensington market, this is hardly a study of the city's immigration patterns. St. Lawrence market is located very close to the luxury condos that sprung up near Harbourfront and the financial district, which means that many of its clients are among the city's wealthiest inhabitants. The market wasn't always this way - before, when the area was rundown, it was just a regular market with some interesting and neat shops, among them a great churrasqueria and pea meal bacon shop. Today, many of the market stalls offer organic produce, chic takes on market cuisine, products from New Zealand or Japan and some novel forms of jam and baked goods. Some of the original sellers are still in the marketplace, like the cheeseshop at the south end of the building, which always specialized in fancy and imported cheeses. The market can get very busy during the weekends and many who come here are just gawkers and tourists as well (so there's no pressure to buy).
