Outside St Lawrence Market on Front Street east

St. Lawrence Market & Esplanade

You could be forgiven for coming to Toronto just to eat your way through St. Lawrence Market. The sheer variety and quality of food stalls mean there’s a cuisine to suit any taste bud or dietary preference. So, have a light breakfast and plan to eat your fill—the options are endless. 

Don't miss:

  • The peameal bacon sandwich at Carousel Bakery—arguably the market’s most popular draw
  • Saturdays for the farmers’ market and Sundays for the antique market
  • A stop at the Gooderham Building, one of the city’s most recognizable buildings
  • Sampling a taste of Montreal at St. Urbain Bagel
  • Handmade, small-batch Kozlik’s Canadian Mustard—a wonderful gift for a condiment lover in one’s life  

BOUNDARIES: Queen Street East to the north, Lakeshore Boulevard to the south, Yonge Street to the west, Parliament Street to the east.

PUBLIC TRANSIT (TTC): King subway station, then 504 streetcar eastbound. Or Union subway station, then walk east on Front Street East.
