About St. Lawrence Market
It’s one of the world’s great markets – each merchant a square on a lively and authentic patchquilt. The mothers, sons, fathers and daughters whose hard work and passion for food and their craft make up the collective story of the Market. You’re here, and part of the story. There’s so much to see, taste and discover – now, where to begin?
The St. Lawrence Market Complex today is comprised of three main buildings: The South Market, the North Market and St. Lawrence Hall. Their main purposes are described in brief below.
The South Market
The main and lower levels of the South Market contain over 120 specialty vendors, known for the variety and freshness of their fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, grains, baked goods and dairy products, as well as for the uniqueness of the non-food items for sale.
The second floor of the South Market is home to the Market Gallery, an exhibition space for the City of Toronto’s Cultural Services.
The North Market
The North Market is primarily known for its Saturday Farmers’ Market, a tradition begun on this site in 1803 and continuing today, as the producers of Southern Ontario bring their seasonal produce to market in the city.
On Sundays, over 80 antique dealers fill the North Market and the surrounding plaza, displaying their wares from dawn to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
