  • Walked 7 blocks to take a late lunch here and worked up the appetite to sample the famed Peameal Bacon sandwich from Carousel Bakery. The place bustled with locals (stood in line ahead of three men in...  more »
  • Toronto is a bustling little town. With few options. In this context, it is worth visiting the market and eat the sandwich of bacon (peameal bacon). The bacon is really tasty and very skinny!!! A cuddly, fluffy bread. The market is much smaller than the municipal market of São Paulo and not very different in style. If you're going to spend more days in the city, it pays to buy condiments, fish and groceries in General

  • Do I need to post about the market; it's freaking St. Lawrence Market. There are so many unique vendors along with vendors you'd expect. Everything is fresh and supported by skilled people in their trade. If you haven't shipped here try it just once and you will immediately remember what shopping for food was like. Oh yeah there are also shops that prepare their specialty on the spot for lunch or a quick snack.
  • The only thing that has changed over the past decade is the prices. The bacon sandwiches are still the best in the city and there's always fresh pasta and pizza being made. I love going to the market early Saturday morning because the farmers market is open and you can get almost any type of produce you can think of and it's fresh from the farm. The market can get quite busy throughout the day, I'd recommend going early as possible to get the freshest food and best experience.
  • Super fun experience. We got some incredible blueberries from the "King of Berries" stand and some delicious baked goods from Carousel Bakery (they're famous for their peameal bacon sandwich but I really loved the custard tarts). Also really enjoyed crepes at Crepe it Up downstairs So many fresh and delicious items and lots of free samples.
  • You can find any food product in this marketplace. I could spend hours there buying different meat and vegetable products that you may not find anywhere else. The restaurants within have some very authentic food, at great prices. And the food is very quick, if you rushing to get back to work. Definitely check it out.
  • The market has a wide range of foodstuffs. You can also eat there. I had fried calamari from Buster's Sea Cove and they were as fresh as you could get them. Very very good. Cakes are good too, we tried the cheesecake.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
