Taste where Toronto began! Over 200 years ago, indigenous people traded goods from canoes and fished for salmon on the shores of Lake Ontario behind where the market stands today. Join us on a short walk around old town for a brief history lesson before we enter the market to taste Portuguese treats, authentic Jewish bagels, candied salmon (often referred to as "Indian Candy") , local Ontario cheeses, genuine Ukrainian perogies, butter tarts and the iconic peameal bacon sandwich enjoyed by several famous chefs including Emeril Lagasse, Anthony Bourdain, and Guy Fieri. Learn how one of the richest, most powerful and most famous women in the world learned her business acumen selling carrots in the market's basement.
