Wall to wall food vendors from all parts of the world. The diversity was unbelievable. Meats, cheeses, sweets, wine etc. The market also offers small restaurants/take out places. The market offers elevators. Bring money and a stoller bag cuz you wont leave empty handed

A market that is full of fresh foods and places to eat. Everything from tarts, seafood to smoke meats. It's definitely a place to visit if you're a tourist and check out one of Toronto's oldest markets.

We started our visit with the famous Bacon on a Bun from the Carousel and then went on a shopping for Capons, Montreal bagels and fois gras. We weren't disappointed, we found it all at great prices. If you're going take a cooler bag to keep your purchases fresh on the drive home. Don't eat breakfast before you go! In... More

Walked over to find a busy Saturday noon hour Market filled with fresh and interesting foods. Enjoyed a peameal bacon on a bun and a fresh slice of pizza as I stocked up on cheeses, pate, salami , dips and tapenade to enjoy with a glass of wine. LCBO next door is well stocked .

I actually walked the market for 90 minutes as I cannot understand what people see in the market other than an outing. Parking impossible and expensive and the meat prices are so high and quality so low. If you are running out of things to do or see? Then go but it's a one star at best. I buy my... More

The word famous market is a great place for finding some of the best food Toronto has to offer. Mostly meats, seafood and produce with some specialty shops selling things like cheese and wine. The country bakery peameal on a bun is a must try. Use the mustard on the side. Kozliks mustard is great artisan mustard and stonemill bakery... More

This place reminds me of many French covered markets; a wide selection of carefully displayed foods and other goods, only much cleaner! There is a huge choice of foods to try and buy, and some nice cafes in which to relax. Worth walking down from central downtown, passing the modern blocks and old brick buildings including the flat-iron.

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.
