Established in 1803, St. Lawrence Market has been the place where you find the greatest selections of meat, seafood, veggies, and freshly-baked bread. You'll find a lot of interesting things here that you can't find in the supermarkets, like elk meat, yogert made with goat milk, hand-pick wild mushroom, super-sized colossal tiger shrimp.
The Market is the busiest on Saturday mornings, when the North Market opens. The North Market is in a separate building on the north side of Front Street. Go early if you want to see the action and try the freshest baked items.
Market which mainly sells food but you can also find souvenirs and crafts and etc.... I ate a few times at St. Lawrence Market. It was a convenient stop on the way from the hostel to different sites. Good place to get sandwiches, sausages, vegetables, fruits. And, there's a small pub at the front of the building as well...so that's a bonus. At the St. Lawrence Market, I had a peameal bacon sandwich; It's the true Canadian Bacon...and it was pretty good.

In 1803, Governor Peter Hunter officially designated this area as the "Market Block." The present building dates to 1901. This is a market for fresh produce, clothing, and just about everything else.
I really like Greek Food! Maybe it's because there are no Greek restaurants in my hometown... Ding! Ding! Ding! There is a business opportunity for someone here! Come and Get It! :-)
A very nice area to visit and have lunch at. Old fashioned buildings and churches, vibrant ambiance and colorful markets.
All hustle and bustle, lively, full of interesting things to eat, can buy all sorts of things there.
If it was raining, a good place to go to see local produce.
If you stop by the St. Lawrence Market on a Saturday, don't forget to cross Front Street and visit the St. Lawrence Farmer's Market. There's always lots of yummy things to be found there.
