The town of York was incorporated as Toronto in 1834. When the New Market House opened in 1845, it was the first permanent city hall and jail until 1899. In 1902, the structure was repurposed as the South Market and adjoined to the North Market. Today, St. Lawrence Market South hosts over 50 stalls selling meats, cheese and produce five days a week (Tuesday through Saturday). Several vendors also offer snack and meal options. You can enjoy your quick bite in the sunshine at a table along the mezzanine.
