The St Lawrence market was named in April 2012 the world's best food market by National Geographic. How does one tackle the top food market, well wear your stretchy pants and bring your appetite as you graze your way through over 50 independently owned market vendors serve up some of the finest food this city has to offer. Once the home of Toronto’s first city hall The South Market is now is a major tourist destination. In 2010 former Major David Miller announced the north market would be replaced by a new stunning wood and glass structure, however budget over runs and design delays have pushed the opening of the building until 2016. The market with its many bars and restaurants and close proximity to downtown stands as one of Toronto’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
