This is a one stop shopping extravaganza! From fresh bread, the best cuts of meat whether it be beef, pork or poultry. Very lean or with fat. The choice is yours. Organic veggies galore, watch the bagels being baked...how much fresher can you get? Cheese sampling is not a problem and you will be sure to purchase some of the... More

It is a pleasant barrage on the senses, smells, colors, people, food. It's always great. Try the Canadian bacon on a bun. Visited many times. Last time was a couple of months ago. There ls a Q ... Is it good for picnics? Not traditional ones, for one thing it's almost entirely indoors, but much of the food is picnic-style... More

It was a very nice experience. I tried a few bakery items like almond pretzels, brownies and lemon bar. A vast variety of fresh meat, sausages and sea food is also available. A must go if you are visiting Toronto. It tells you about the history of the city.

A landmark in downtown Toronto. The variety that this market offers attracts people of all colours, gender and age. Their prices are reasonable. I like the food section especially the Italian stall that makes authentic sandwiches. The market is clean but I hope they will keep it that way or even more tidy. Plus I hope they open a little...

Something great to eat here for just about everybody, but my favourite is the bacon sandwich with lots of HP sauce. Then it's off to get some cheeses and veggies for home. Parking is busy, but at least on Saturday mornings it's really cheap ($2 or something like that) at the Green P public lot just one block south of... More

We go often on Saturday afternoons to get amazing meat and seafood instead of going out for dinner we make an afternoon and go pick out what we want to cook together and have a romantic date night at home.

Well worth a visit when in Toronto! So much choice of everything! It was a shame we weren't staying longer/ can take food out of the country as there was so much we wanted to buy! Can see why it was voted Worlds best indoor market!

I heard that Lawrence Market was purchased by Celine Dion to preserve the old Toronto Historical site. You get a mixture of fresh meat, seafood and cooked food for your gastronomic appetite. Toronto has so many buildings / condominiums going up. It is wonderful to see that some people try their best to maintain the old charm. Oh wait, I... More

One of my favorite places to wander in Toronto. Incredible good food and such interesting people to talk to. I love all the cheese vendors who are so passionate about their products.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
