I used to live just north of here in a condo and we would shop Sat mornings, that is until the Loblaws opened up just south of there. There are some hidden gems like the portuguese churrasqueira near the upper level North West entrance or Busters Fish house. However most of the places are a tourist trap with rip off... More

The area is very cool. Lots of nice architecture nearby. The market is indoor on two levels. There was almost everything you need with fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish.. I found the prices to be relatively expensive. Almost like Granville Island in Vancouver price wise. Everything was good except the sirloin steak which was tough when BBQ. The rest was... More

A really interesting market with fresh and prepared foods. We enjoyed a local speciality-the "Peameal" sandwich-really a bacon sandwich, which made for a hearty breakfast. Give it a try!

I have been to many markets and this is as it says a traditional market. Please don't anticipate a market like Quincy Market in Boston which is really just a bunch of restaurants in one location. This is a traditional style market with fresh food and drinks as well. I saw some great products like seafood, meat, and wine along... More

This was a cool place to have a quick lunch. We tried the panmeal sandwich at one of the shops, bought specialty spicy mustard to bring back to the states and got an awesome Matcha green tea to go! My only regret is not leaving my suitcase light enough to bring back more delicious delectables lol. Tip: They are closed... More

It is a nice place, but relatively small and not offering any real excitement... You may spend half an hour walking around watching various food stends

We stayed nearby to St. Lawrence Market and walked over to get breakfast in the morning. I wish we had come back over later to see the lunch spread but we didn't have time. There are great coffee and pastry places and it looked like a great souvenir place as well, very touristy. There were great looking meat markets, veggie... 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.
