While I enjoy St Lawrence Market, I find it to be more of a tourist attraction on the weekend than a "farmers market". Very very crowded.

Check market days - not every day. Great place for local and international produce - fruit, vegetables, cheese, meats, fish,flowers etc. Popular with tourist groups/coach trips. Plenty of places to have a breakfast/snack/lunch. Well worth a visit - very colourful.

We were disappointed with our visit to the market. There wasn't that much to see or variety to purchase.

The best crab cakes and peameal bacon sandwiches. Great for fresh groceries (seafood, sausages, cheeses, fresh bread) Lots to see and eat.

As the review says, it has the best of Toronto food culture in one simple market. The food places surrounding the market are all delicious. If you want to eat and experience the local toronto food scene then this is the place to be

If you enjoy browsing food stores, including some very specialized ones (like a vendor specializing in truffle and truffle oil), you can't miss the St. Lawrence Market. In addition to the main market, there's also a farmers' market adjacent to it every Saturday. Definitely worth a visit.

I suggest getting there early like 7am on a Saturday. There is so much to choose from but if your planning any event where you are bbq'ing or cooking from home.

The perfect place for antipasto, dips, and dessert. This foodie paradise also features bakeries, sauciers, and butchers.

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.
