St. Lawrence Market, “best in the world”, 92-95 Front Street East

In its latest book, “Food Journeys of a Lifetime”, the National Geographic Magazine proclaimed TORONTO’s St. Lawrence Market “the best food market in the world”.  A few years earlier in 2004, Food and Wine Magazine listed the Market among “the 25 Best Food Markets in the World”.  There’s been a public market at Front and Church since 1803, making it one of the oldest continuously operating food markets in North America.  If you like markets, this is the one to visit.

Open Monday to Saturday, 92-95 Front Street East at Church.
