A day at St.Lawrence Market

My friend took the courtesy to bring me in St.Lawrence Market last March break along with her daughter, my husband and I wanted to go there but whenever possible it was always postponed. It was a like an old marketplace full of different produce. From barbecue to fillet mignon, different cuts of meat prepared for easy cooking, cheese, poultry, seafood, fruits, utensils, bread, cakes and pastries, coffee, chocolates, organic products, condiments ( Asian, Japanese, French, Thai, Indian, etc ), trinkets, t-shirts, stuffs for pet, flowers, cat grass, restaurants and everything.

We found the cat grass here is cheaper compared to the one we see at the grocery. We loved the Calamari and Fries at Buster's Sea Cove. And we indulged ourselves to a bite of brownies at Eve's Temptations. I also found the Mirin I'm looking for on the Lower Level of South Market.

In addition to this they have The Market Kitchen which features a Celebrity Chef series, interactive demonstrations, dinner packages and hands-on cooking classes.

"Toronto, Canada's St. Lawrence Market, located west of Jarvis Street, between King Street East and the Esplanade, is owned by the City of Toronto.
