While some may call it Moss Park, the crown jewel of the neighbourhood is the St. Lawrence market. It's the heart of the area. A focal point that draws people in from across the city, the GTA and the province. It's a foodie haven and a representation of the neighbourhood's diversity, culture and passion.
Aside from the endless supply of organic meats and delicious baked goods, the St. Lawrence market area is home to some of the most interesting architecture Toronto has to offer. From the Flatiron building to the old Hall. Established in the early 1800's, this is far from your new, contemporary neighbourhood that's just on the cusp of something great. But that's where the appeal lies. Toronto has done a great job of preserving the neighbourhood's old world feel while it adds luxury condos and homes to its repertoire. The renewed love for this unique enclave has made it one of the most coveted spots for families, young professionals and anyone else looking for a picturesque place to hang their hat. Oh, and condo supply has been steadily increasing.
There is a unique mix of large, spacious units from decades past to new towers redefining the city's skyline. Whether you're looking for a modern loft with floor to ceiling windows, a two-story townhouse with a private walk-out terrace, or a detached home with crown moulding throughout, the St. Lawrence Market area has something for just about everyone.
Inside this hidden gem is an eclectic collection of restaurants, bars, speciality shops and grocers that provide residents with a seemingly endless supply of Toronto's best. It's becoming much like a city within a city. Perhaps that's why people take so much pride in the area.
From top-notch schools and five-star restaurants to high-end furniture and home stores to independent retailers and green parks, this neighborhood offers all the necessities one could want. Not to mention, you're only a short walk to the waterfront, Distillery District and the core.
