Wandering the St Lawrence Market area of Toronto can yield some amazing (and delicious) gastronomical discoveries. This market was set apart by National Geographic as being the best food market in the world, and a visit here certainly shows how it won the title. In the market itself you'll find food from all corners of the globe. A personal favourite is Buster's Sea Cove at the southwest corner of the market. Here you can dig into a plate of fish and chips or go for something a bit less traditional, like the grilled Swordfish Sandwich! Whatever you order up, you can count on it being very fresh!
During the browsing and the shopping though, you may want to pause and enjoy something yummy in one of the nearby restaurants, or grab a drink in one of the local pubs. Whatever might be tempting your appetite, you're sure to find it here!
Wandering the area you'll discover restaurants specializing in cuisine from France, Japan, Morocco, Italy - you name it!
