Workshops such as Taste of Morocco, Macaron Making, Le Café Gourmand, Homemade Pasta, and even French Food for Kids – all take place at one of Toronto’s most iconic spots – the St. Lawrence Market.
Located in downtown Toronto, on the corner of Jarvis and Front, the St. Lawrence market has been serving Torontonians since 1803, offering fresh local produce, and even prepared delights on its second level.
A Farmer’s Market takes place every Saturday from very early in the morning (5am to be exact) until 3pm, bringing together vendors who sell everything from seafood and breads to organic meats, flowers and coffee.
An antique market also takes place every Sunday from dawn till 5.
But best of all – the market offers culinary and food handling workshops that will have you drooling all the way to the market and back.
These events happen on Friday nights, and occasionally on the weekend, and the sell out pretty quickly (a testament to how good they are!).
Events taking place in the near future which have not sold out yet, are:
