I haven't been for a few years but it is an incredible experience. Everything you could want is for sale. If you are a food gourmet like me you will find things here you will never find anywhere else. Have a peameal bacon sandwich. They are incredible! Parking is tight but it can be had if you are prepared to... More

This market has food from all over the world and it's all pretty fresh. You can find nearly anything you need here from spices to types of fish you've never heard of. There are also local restaurants inside the market that have fresh food and everyone I have been to is amazing.

Pricey, as is to be expected in the heart of downtown Toronto. I go to the Farmer's Market almost every Saturday, early, and usually wind my way back through the stalls of SLM. This is your one stop shop for excellent breads, meats, fish, cheeses, honey .... Plus, of course, touristy kitsch. Check out the "signature" peameal bacon sandwiches from... More

A great place for local and exotic produce from meats, cheeses, produce to pastries this is a must visit if you're a foodie. All the vendors are local and have a great knowledge and passion for their products, you won't find the any commercialized brands here.

When you are in Toronto, this is a must visit. I have had the chance to visit this place with my good friend. Tip: Make sure you ask in case you are interested in things, the sellers are willing to give you answers for all your questions!

We don't always hit the St. Lawrence Market when in Toronto, but it is a fun, diverting hour. Things to sample, stuff to learn (one of the fishmongers explained how to prepare and eat sea urchins! We still didn't opt to take any home). And there's lots of different options for an affordable/cheap lunch freshly prepared. Not five star dining,... 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.
