The St. Lawrence market in Toronto is a magnet for upper middle class shoppers who want to buy good quality fresh produce for moderately elevated prices. In fact the only other people you’ll spot in there are the farmers who sell their own produce and tourists, snapping away happily with one hand whilst the other grasps the huge $3 pea-meal bacon rolls (salt and sugar cured extra lean ham rolled in cornmeal) that are a speciality of the largest city in Canada. The south market hall and the farmers market in the north market building have been trading for over 200 years selling meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables. Specialities include elk meat, goats milk yoghurts, hand-picked wild mushrooms and enormous tiger prawns. Upstairs in the south market, in the former council chambers, is a gallery exhibiting photos and artefacts of the market’s history to make your visit both culinary and educational.
