St. Lawrence Market & Old Town Toronto
- Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Toronto, Ontario
- Product code: SLM
Taste where Toronto all began! Over 200 years ago, our aboriginal forefathers would trade goods from war canoes and fish for salmon on the shores of Lake Ontario, just behind where the market stands today. St. Lawrence market has been around longer than the city of Toronto itself. In fact, in 2012, it was named best market in the world by National Geographic.
Join us on a short walk and a brief history lesson through old town before we duck into the market. Portuguese treats, authentic Jewish bagels, Indian candy, local Ontario cheeses, wild game, mustards, genuine Ukranian perogies, and butter tarts will all be enjoyed! And of course, we can't forget the iconic Peameal Bacon Sandwich, enjoyed by chefs such as Emeril Lagasse, Anthony Bourdain, and Guy Fieri when they visit "The Six". Our guide will even tell you the story of how one of the richest, most powerful and most famous woman in the world learned her business acumen selling carrots in the basement of the market.
If you love food and you love history, you will love this tour!
