The St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood is as old as Toronto itself. The architecturally significant 19th century Georgian style red and yellow brick buildings that line Front Street go back to this earlier period. The newer part of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood situated around The Esplanade was constructed in the 1970s. The Esplanade off Yonge St, is lined with great restaurants, cafés and hotels. St Lawrence Market has seen a resurgence in newer condos over the last few years. There’s a mix of converted & new lofts plus newer condo developments to suit whatever you like. Right on Yonge St & close to the subway, Union Station & Financial District, St Lawrence Market is a very desirable area to live.

Enjoy a cold one at The Bier Market with a selection of over 100 brands of beer from over 24 countries or stroll through the funky furniture stores on King Street. Or visit the market which is home to several dozen meats and deli stands, produce shops and fish stands all offering an abundance of everyday and gourmet foods. Cheese and dairy foods, dry goods and a small selection of organic health foods are also available on both levels of the market. On Saturdays, smaller farmers market opens in the north market building directly across from the Market’s main doors on Front Street. Here shoppers can find fresh cut flowers and fruits and vegetables, including local and hothouse produce.
