  • market has the traditional in any market, but unlike has certain ports of meat, cheese and fish of high quality, definitely in this market will be the most close as possible that they will have to street food in Toronto, if you want to know more to the Toronto people must know this market, I recommend the jobs of hamburger and hotdogs, but above all the position of the end of the corner of fish and seafood, without a doubt the best salmon which I tried in Canada and at a great price

  • We visited the market with our kids because we heard that you could buy amazing bagels, cream cheese and lox, along with some fresh roast coffee. This is all true, although you do have to go to a few ...  more »

  • Our favourite activity on the weekend. So many great places to get such a wide variety of food. Also so many good food stands to get a bite to eat during the process. All vendors I have been in contact with have always been pleasant and helpful. My favourite grocery areas are on the main floor north east corner and 2 downstairs options. Favourite eats are the famous meatball sandwich a snack the churrasco chicken sandwich. The cheese shops are great most of them even have non pasteurized options if you are intolerant. Look at this salad I made with all market ingredients....
  • Such a beautiful market and worth visiting if you're a first time explorer in Toronto. Best to visit by yourself or with one friend or date....it gets crowded fast and it's almost impossible to move together as a group. Great selection of vendors though - food was fresh and everyone who worked there was lovely. You have to try the Smoked Salmon on Bagel! I forget the vendor, but they are near the back doors!
  • Awesome market for everything from groceries for the week to a bite to eat! It reminds me of the reading terminal in PA which is also another amazing spot. There were many artisans and small shops that specialize in one particular fare. There was so much to see smell and eat that I felt my head was constantly moving back and forward to catch everything. I highly recommend at least walking through once during your stay in Toronto.
  • Best for all your favorite foods, also great place to buy your household food.... organic farming and produce. I recommend my friend Jorge, he has the best organic food, such as an array of vegetables. Also stop over by the indoor market ( two levels of just amazing food) and pick up some butter tarts. They are wonderful.
  • Interesting market place with a wide variety of fresh food to choose from. There are also seats inside, so it's good to just buy a sandwich or a bagel and eat it there. The street level floor is mostly fresh meat, fish or pickled veggies and condiments. There's another floor below the street level, you'll see smaller shops selling souvenirs, seasonings, baking ingredients or bottled juices. We ended up trying the must-eat peameal bacon sandwich and a Montreal bagel from the St. Urbain Bagel. All were very yummy!

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.
