Need somewhere with plenty of food options? This is the place! From fresh produce, to baked goods and anything else you might want, it's all here. There's also some souvenir shops to grab that little gift. Wander around, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy one of the oldest market squares in Toronto.

Great place to go when you are hungry. Historic venue with all the cheese, meats, pastries and cakes you could want. Skip lunch and go here instead.

There is just about everything you would need to make a plain or exotic meal. I wish however, there were more varied places to eat.

It's a fun place to visit, easily accessible. You can just look, but fresh food or stop in for a bite. Open atmosphere and there are tables outside to eat. Or just come for a look around.

A great place to buy local and see some wonderful food. We thought it was a great snapshot of the city with vendors from all heritage backgrounds. Don't miss Kozlicks Mustards--so many flavors and excellent prices.

If you can't find it at St Lawrence Market then it doesn't exist! Very knowledge and friendly shop staff. Great vibe, clean!! This market is in a great part of the city. It was just a 3 minute walk from our hotel too. Open all day long

Stopped here, shortly after arriving on the train. I had pictures in my mind of a much bigger market, think Budapest, and other European countries. I was disappointed. There was a decent mix of fish mongers, butchers etc... and there was some kitchy dealers in the basement, but overall, I was less than impressed. I expected more places to eat,... More

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.
