St. Lawrence Market (South Building)
Eating Your Way Around Ontario
The St.Lawrence Market is one of my favorite spots in the city. Housing over 120 speciality vendors, it's a perfect place for picking up ingredients for a picnic or light supper. I was able to taste local in every category I wanted. Cheeses from Ontario and Quebec, local wineries, seafood featuring fresh catch and baked goods-my beloved butter tart. There's an international flavor to the market that reflects the city itself, and the Saturday Farmer's Market provides a chance to see the best in Southern Ontario growers. Sundays the antique vendors line the outdoor areas with unique wares. When you've made your selection from the dizzying array of choices, head over to Sugar Beach and enjoy your meal at the revitalized waterfront.
