A Profile of St. Lawrence Market


St. Lawrence Market is Toronto's most historic market. The North Market opened way back in the early 1800s, was since destroyed in the Great Fire of 1849 and then re-built many times over. The building that stands today was erected in 1968.

I've been shopping at the market ever since I was a kid. On special holidays my father used to take me on early morning oyster-runs so we could get our pick of the Malpeques before the crowds descended. In recent weeks, with camera in tow, I spent some time documenting St. Lawrence Market for blogTO.

You'll notice that the profile links to information about most of the merchants within. Go check it out.
