St. Lawrence Market
Strong coffee, gorgeous flowers, warm baked goods, fresh fruit, local handmade jewelry, fascinating antiques, freshly cut meats....whatever you are looking for, St. Lawrence Market probably has it!
This sprawling marketplace has over 120 vendors regularly, the vast lineup including bakers, butchers, and artisans of every sort. Pride and passion are found in every separate stand, this market a local tradition and culinary focal point since 1803! That's right, people have been shopping (and trading) here for over 200 years!
There are 3 main buildings that are considered to make up the market, The South, North, and St. Lawrence Hall. Within the South Building, you will find fresh fruit, veggies, meat, fish, grains, and dairy products all throughout the week, the products depending on what is in season and surplus at the time. The North Building holds the highly popular Saturday Farmer's Market, as well as the Sunday Antique Market. St. Lawrence Hall holds various city retail businesses selling prepared foods, organic foods, cut flowers, and so much more. There are several special events that take place regularly on these grounds, making it one of the largest and most utilized community gathering centers in all of Ontario.
