The St. Lawrence Market is the major public market in Toronto and it has seen many faces since its construction in the 17th century. It is located in the Old District and it is divided into three buildings: the South Marke (features 120 vendors that sell a mix of food and retail items), the North Market (famous for its historic farmers market since 1803), and the St. Lawrence Hall (houses retail business).
Open throughout the day from Tuesday through Saturday, the St. Lawrence Market offers one of the best food markets experience in the world. Foodie experts and travelers often get impressed by the endless amount of options that showcase the authenticity of truly good food. One of the most famous dishes that are a signature in Toronto is the bacon sandwich at the Carousel Bakery.

Along with being a marketplace, the St. Lawrence Market has served as the city's social center, as well as its City Hall, where concerts, meetings, and lectures are held. Today, the market sells a variety of items that range from food to jewelry and some antiques. Also, there are cooking classes as well as exhibitions in the Market Gallery. Saturdays are usually when this place gets more crowded and you can see more of these fun events. Make sure to arrive early enough to explore the whole market!
