St. Lawrence Market and Old Toronto Food Tour
Get a flavor for Toronto’s multicultural history on a leisurely food and walking tour of Old Town. Visit the area’s gems as you listen to little-known anecdotes about its turbulent history. The tour ends at St. Lawrence Market, which can be overwhelming to navigate alone. Follow your guide through the market to enjoy a tasting menu of 14 different cuisines.
What to Expect

The tour begins in the morning at St. Lawrence Market. Fuel the morning with freshly-baked croissants and a hot drink from an independent coffee.

Start the tour at Toronto’s oldest church, home to one of Canada’s most prized stained-glass collections. As you make your way through Old Town, your guide provides a historical overview of the city and points out landmarks you may not have recognized on your own.

Circle back to St. Lawrence Market for an array of food samplings, including Jewish bagels, Ukrainian pirogies, and Indian candy. With over 100 vendors, the market can be overwhelming—let your guide navigate to the best stalls for you.

There is some street parking, but also a garage very close by. Like others have said, costs vary by tour company, but it’s defiy worth the. OST for the amount of food you get.
