The St. Lawrence Market is the kind of place that you go on a sunny summer morning, or a rich autumn afternoon, or a crisp winter one. And you sit and eat an amazing peameal bacon sandwich from Carousel Bakery, or a cream filled Portuguese pastry, or some ginger beef. And you drink a perfect coffee or Italian soda. And then you sit outside at one of the communal picnic tables and savor your finds while a busker plays the Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah” and the moment is golden.
This is a place to wander and wonder. Give yourself time to check out the stalls and the kitschy Canadiana. You will be astonished at the great kitchen gadgets and goodies tucked away here.
Yes, there will be tourists. But hey, haven’t you heard? Toronto is the most diverse city in the world according to the United Nations. So really, everyone is from somewhere else and home at the same time. So roll with that. You will be so happy you did.
