Hg2 : The Hedonist

St. Lawrence Market

Torontonians are fiercely proud of this building – it’s one of their oldest (built in 1851 and based on architectural plans for London’s Victoria Station), and houses one of the world’s best food markets.

Come hungry, but exercise control until you’ve done the full circuit and samples of the take-out stalls. The ground floor is a Mecca for cheese, fish and seafood lovers, and condiment connoisseurs will relish the Mustard Emporium. The Carousel Bakery is the most crowded pit stop, largely due to the Peameal Bacon Sandwich: cornmeal-crusted bacon on a doughy roll with your mustard of choice (try maple/horseradish).

The lower level has an array of fruit and veg, and barrels of pick ‘n’ mix sweets, nuts and chocolate. Across the road there’s a Saturday farmer’s market (5am-5pm) that becomes an antique fair on Sundays (dawn-5pm).
