St. Lawrence Market – Old Town

The St. Lawrence neighbourhood has been critically acclaimed as a major success in urban planning. In many ways, it has become the model for the design and planning of new urban communities across North America. The ‘St. Lawrence Market’ which began operation in 1803 is open daily, selling foods and other goods, while the Saturday farmers’ market operates in the north building, on the north side of Front Street. Since that time, the area around St. Lawrence has been redeveloped into a popular downtown residential neighbourhood. Some of the most interesting architecture in the city can be found in St. Lawrence, one notable landmark is the Flatiron building, known for its distinct narrow, wedge shape built in 1892. Several old industrial buildings still remain, including old meat-packing plants from the 1800s that have been converted to mixed commercial use spaces. The Esplanade off Yonge St., lined with restaurants, cafés and hotels runs through the middle of the area. The area prides some of the city’s best loft conversions and condominiums. The locals love being steps away from the farmers’ market. This is one neighbourhood to keep on the radar when searching for your new home.
