Developed in an area rich in history, the St. Lawrence Market stands where the old city hall and prison complex used to be. Receiving the nod from National Geographic as the "world's best," both the North and South sections are itinerary staples for both food and modern culture.
Temporarily located a block south on the Esplanade until the new four-floor glass complex is built, St. Lawrence North is known for being a huge farmer's market that caters to your every fresh and local need, while the St. Lawrence South, located on Front Street, is known for its delicious selection of prepared goods. Rich with many years of trade and tradition, a favorite spot to return to is the Carousel Bakery, famous for Toronto's own Peameal Bacon Sandwich (think cornmeal-coated slabs of bacon).
