    A great view of the market from St Lawrence Hall. Lots of yummy memories of pealmeal bacon sandwiches from the Carousel Bakery plus bringing hundreds of Gr 9 geography students here on their annual field trip.

    I've always loved this market, ever since I've come here as a kid! There is a great multicultural footprint; food is a nexus for people of all kinds.

    St. Lawrence Market is a reminder of Toronto’s love for food. The site where the market buildings stand has been used for a weekly farmer’s market for over 200 years and continues to be a bustling, busy hub in the centre of the city. The market complex is actually made up of two buildings, called the south and north market buildings. The north market building is well known for its farmer’s market and its antique market on Sundays, where you can see some of the old furniture and items from early Canadian residents.

    Today, the south market building is set up with permanent shops in the form of stalls laid out in a series of rows, with their own street signs. Customers browse while vendors call out to each other from stalls selling fresh fruits, cheeses, jewelry, clothing and more. I enjoy shopping here because you can get personalized advice and pick up artisanal products that are hard to find elsewhere in the city.

    Many of the vendors are Toronto based, so you are supporting locals when you’re there too, just as residents did 200 years back! My advice? Grab a fresh made sandwich or sample something sweet as you make your way through the floors of the market.

    Le marché St Lawrence est un exemple de l'importance de la nourriture à Toronto. Le lieu se sert d'un marché depuis plus de deux cents ans et il reste toujours vivant au centre de la ville forte animée. Le marché a deux bâtiments, qui s'appellent le bâtiment nord et le bâtiment sud. Le bâtiment nord est connu pour son marché antique et son marché d'agriculteurs hebdomadaires. Le bâtiment sud a des magasins variés aux plans rectilignes avec des panneaux des rues pour se trouver. En regardant les produits, les visiteurs peuvent écouter les vendeurs qui crient les prix et les bons plans pour les fruits frais, les fromages, les vêtements, la joaillerie et plus encore. J'aime le marché parce que les vendeurs donnent les conseils personnalisés et il est plein de produits artisanaux qui sont difficiles à trouver ailleurs. Beaucoup de vendeurs viennent de Toronto et ses environs donc on soutient un marché local comme les résidents anciens. Essayez un sandwich ou quelque chose sucrée lorsque vous parcourez les deux bâtiments !
