Photo Essay: The St. Lawrence Market
I’ve mentioned before, I am fortunate enough to work near one of Toronto’s true treasures, the St. Lawrence Market. For over 200 years it’s been known for variety and freshness of its fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, grains, baked goods and dairy products. It also happens to be one of my favourite places to wander about in search of hard to find ingredients, fresh produce and a wealth of recipe inspirations.
Having multiple vendors in one location ensures competitive pricing and only the freshest produce.
While you may not live in Toronto, I encourage you to go check out your own city’s market. The first trip may be overwhelming, but you’ll soon learn the real secret of a farmer’s market is not only the fresh food, but also the wealth of people willing to talk to you about every aspect of the food you eat.
The creative food ideas just flow.
