St. Lawrence Market is as old as Toronto itself. The architecturally significant 19th century Georgian style red and yellow brick buildings that line Front Street date back to Toronto’s earliest period. The newer structures situated around The Esplanade were constructed in the 1970’s. St. Lawrence Market is family-friendly, populated by mixed income families, couples and individuals from many different cultural backgrounds. 

The focal point of the neighbourhood is St. Lawrence Market, of course. South Saint Lawrence Market served as Toronto’s first City Hall, while North St. Lawrence Market was Toronto’s first official farmer’s market. In the early 1900’s, St. Lawrence Market had become one of Toronto’s most prominent industrial centres, and remained so until the 1940’s. As the city expanded, the industrial base began moving outside the city, which put the area into a period of decline.

Consistent throughout the neighbourhood is red brick, which acts as the identifier for St. Lawrence residences. Non-profit housing, market rental buildings and luxury condominiums are scattered throughout the St. Lawrence Market area as well. There are lots of restaurants and shops along The Esplanade that appeal to tourists, but are also convenient for locals.   

Although St. Lawrence is in the heart of the city, residents can still enjoy fresh air and a nice scenic walk. David Crombie Park is a multi-faceted linear park that runs through the centre of neighbourhood along The Esplanade. This park has pretty gardens that are perfect for taking a break or going for a stroll. There’s also a waterfall, a handball court and a basketball court. The St. Lawrence Community Recreation Centre is also located on The Esplanade and offers recreational activities to residents.  

St. Lawrence is a great place to live and to appreciate character and the history of Toronto. It’s also home to the famous landmark St. Lawrence Market, a popular food emporium with over 200 vendors. Taking a stroll through the market will leave you entertained and your bags full of fresh meats, seafood, fruits and vegetables. With St. Lawrence being a short walk to Union Station and a quick escape out of Toronto. It’s a great place to live for the young professional or growing family.
