Established in 1803, the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is a must-see if you’re in town. It’s open five days a week and on Saturdays it opens at 5 a.m. for the farmers’ market.
Whenever I travel, I always seek out the local farmers market. It’s a good place to pick up snack foods and lunch and it also gives you a sense of what’s in season in that area so you can know when you go out to restaurants.
Ontario is very similar to Michigan in climate so I wasn’t surprised to see a lot of the same produce we have in October, which is when I was in there: carrots, cabbage, apples, parsnips, kale, etc.
This market is huge. It’s not just produce, but also specialty merchants, vendors, and eateries.
I couldn’t resist the raspberry jam from Stasis Preserves.
All that’s in the jar are raspberries and sugar, which makes this a delightful Bill-friendly treat for his millet and flax toast!
