St. Lawrence Market, it is one of my favourite spots in Toronto. I can use any excuse to visit there. In addition to being my favourite place, it is one of the most touristic spots in the city and a heaven for a foodie.

If you are into shopping from boutique stores rather than big supermarkets, St. Lawrence is a great place for you. For example, there are cheese shops where you can find various kinds of cheese. Also, you can shop at the butchers in the market and find rare meat kinds if you like! There are bakeries, wine shops and so on. Also, vegetable and fruits are usually super fresh.

You can do your grocery shopping in St. Lawrence and cook in the home but also you can fill your tummy in one of the places in the market. Our favourite is Buster’s Sea Cove. If you like seafood this is your spot. There are some bakeries where you can get delicious sandwiches, dessert and pastry. Our other favourite spot is Carousel Bakery, they make delicious peameal bacon sandwich. When the weather is good, you can eat sitting on the picnic tables just outside of the market.
