St. Lawrence Market has been named the world’s best food market by National Geographic.
The famous Toronto market beat out well-known food markets like the Union Square Greenmarket in New York and Cours Saleya in Nice. Take that world! St. Lawrence is numero uno…
Here’s what the magazine had to say about every Torontonians go-to place for fresh fish, produce and peameal bacon sandwiches:
“This farmers market emporium has operated since 1803, when it cohabited with Toronto’s city hall. Redeveloped between the 1970s and 1990s after long neglect, the area’s mix of homes and businesses showcases urban regeneration. More than 120 retailers dispense everything from seafood to coffee.”
A little international recognition goes a long way and we think this is a pretty great selling point for all the awesome condo projects that are currently under construction or in preconstruction in the area.
We compiled a short list of our favourite developments that are only a short walk away from the St. Lawrence Market…
- Backstage by Castlepoint Realty, Cityzen and Fernbrook Homes
- The L Tower by Castlepoint Realty, Cityzen and Fernbrook Homes
- 88 Scott Street Condos by Concert
- Market Wharf by Context
- Trump Tower by Talon International Development
- Post House by Alterra
Obviously there are many benefits of having the Market right at your doorstep, but the one we think we’d appreciate most is not having to wake up absurdly early on Saturday to get the freshest of the fresh produce and meat.
