Toronto BIAs

Welcome to St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood!

Located in the heart of historical Old Town Toronto and steps from the financial district, Air Canada Centre, Union Station, the waterfront and the Distillery District, the St. Lawrence Market BIA is a unique area where old and new co-exist; where heritage buildings stand alongside modern condominiums and businesses.

Home to the famous 200-year-old St. Lawrence Market and the north Market that houses the popular weekend organic farmers market and antique market, our area is a daily destination for gastronomic adventures. The St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood has Toronto’s largest concentration of historic architecture including the Flatiron Building, St. Lawrence Hall, St. James Cathedral and the original 10 blocks of the Town of York. With more than six live performance theatres, quaint shops and the King Street East Design District featuring the largest collection of fine home décor and design stores, charming restaurants and bustling pubs, the Hockey Hall of Fame, six city parks including the historic sculpture garden, Berczy Park and St. James Park and Victorian Garden, it’s easy to comprehend why we’re described as both hip and historic.

Annual events in the area include Music in St. James Park summer concert series, Active in St. James, History Comes Alive in Old Town Toronto re-enacting scenes from life 200 years ago, historical artisans, the Feast of St. Lawrence food festival, Bard in St. James, Berczy Beats, I Heart Market Street, the Old Town Toronto Pumpkin Parade, and the Cavalcade of Lights in Old Town.
