Had literally any type of food that you might want to buy, as well as some places for souvenirs. Not a huge amount of space to eat inside, but there’s a green nearby if you wanted to bring it outside.

Really good local food, but it can be a bit pricey. I'm all for getting farm fresh food and paying the fair amount for it but just be wary of what that fair amount is

Cool place to visit and hang out, but my experience is that if you're only visiting there's not much prepared foods to eat here (visited during the winter, if that matters)

The St. Lawrence Market is noted as being one of the best in the world! If you love food this is the place to visit (meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, deserts, cheeses, pasts etc.) It offers hundreds of food vendors as well as artisans on the lower levels. Try Paddington's 'breakfast on a bun'.

St. Lawrence Market is a good place to grab fresh food while exploring Toronto. There is a downstairs basement area with more food. Place is closed on Mondays so plan accordingly.

Rated by National Geographic as one of the best markets in the world, the St. Lawrence Market is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon alone, with friends, family, or a date. It's where Toronto locals go to pick up fresh fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses and baked goods. It has it all. As someone who tries really hard to support the local economy, St. Lawrence Market is my go-to place for farm goods. Come here when they have a Farmer's Market happening; Saturday mornings are my favourite.

If you don't plan on grocery shopping in Toronto, this is where you can buy your souvenirs and take lots of photos. When your stomach starts grumbling for food, ease its woes by picking up a famous toasted bagel at St. Urbain Bagel or jam-packed sandwich at Mustachio Sandwiches.

The market is gorgeous and a deep part of Toronto's history. When you're done exploring, take a walk to the Distillery District.

From the food stalls to the Sunday antique dealers, the St. Lawrence Market is the best place to get something unique while you're in Toronto. You'll find some of the best seafood dealers, best cheesemongers, best exotic meat butchers. Plus, you have to try the peameal bacon sandwiches!

The place to go for the most fantastic fresh food shopping - seafood, free range meats and fresh fruit and vege. Many vendors serve breakfast and lunch. Busters fish and chips is amazing. Please note, the market is not open on Sunday.

This is a very interesting location for just about anyone visiting the Toronto area. There is a very large spectrum of food vendors in the space, with everything ranging from Asian to South American cuisine. There are also a number of gift shop type places. It is a fun way not only to expand your culinary horizons, but also mix and mingle with local Canadians.

When I lived in Toronto, this public market down by the waterfront was one of my favorite haunts. The market halls are enormous, and there's also a weekly farmers market here, if the 100+ specialty food vendors that are open almost every day (except Sunday and Monday, usually) aren't enough to sate your foodie curiosity and appetite. Don't leave without trying some Ontario-made cheese.

I last stopped in at the St. Lawrence Market on a Saturday morning. They open at 5 AM and considering that I am a morning person, I should have come earlier and for breakfast. The historical main building (2 floors) and the North building across the street were in full swing and were filled with all sorts of wonderful/interesting smells and fresh food options, including meats, fish, cheese, fruit, soups, sandwiches, and baked goods. The compact kitchen gadget shop was pretty cool too.
