One of my favourite things to do on a summer day is head to the market. I live about 5 minutes away from the St. Lawrence Market so I’m always dropping by to pick a few things up whether it’s flowers, a few groceries, a sandwich, or a coffee. Although I have my set spots for specific items, I still do a tour of the market every time I go because it has such a cute, homey vibe to it that I just love!
For a great selection of flowers and succulents, I love the Greenery Patch. It’s affordable, good quality and has the best variety!
For groceries, my go-to is Family Food Market. They have a large selection of gourmet produce. It’s a little more expensive than say, Loblaws or Metro, but the quality of the fruits and vegetables are so worth it. On top of that, the sweetest people work there providing great customer service.
I don’t get this often because it isn’t the healthiest option at the market, but it is DELICIOUS – the peameal bacon sandwich at Carousel Bakery. I promise you, it’ll be worth it. (Side note: it’s apparently “world famous”…pretty cool).
And of course, coffee. I normally grab a coffee or latte from Balzac’s which is just outside of the market and has a cozy atmosphere for a coffee date!
Now that I’ve listed my St. Lawrence Market go-to spots, naturally, I must move on to my new french market basket which is PERFECT for a trip to the St. Lawrence Market. It’s from MUR Lifestyle, a brand I was introduced to a few weeks ago and I’m already so obsessed! Their goods are carefully sourced from small scale manufacturers, artisans and designers so you can always count on a unique offering of beautiful, high quality products at a reasonable price. I also love the idea of supporting a Canadian husband and wife duo!
