Since this week's theme was "local Markets", I decided to take a walk and have lunch at Toronto's St. Lawrence Market. This market is situated close to Front Street East and Jarvis Street, the area is also known as Old Town district of Toronto.
St. Lawrence Market was named the world's best food market by National Geographic in April 2012, so I was really expecting something good for lunch. I decide to eat at the "Buster's Sea Cove" seafood stall.
I think Buster's Sea Cove is enjoying a lot of good reviews online so I was expecting a lot of people there. However, the quality of food and service was still very good. This haddock (I think beer battered) was so good with the Tatar sauce. Everybody was busy looking at their plates, so I got to sneak a photo or two of this place.
After the seafood distraction I got to walk further into the market. This market offers so many stalls from produce to handmade jewelry. The produce section had many varieties of fruits and vegetables. Lot of locals and restaurant owners were shopping for the day's menu here.
Another hot item seems to be the cheese. There were so many varieties to sample and many olives and vines to go with it too.
Towards the end of the market hall I regret having the seafood because this guy was cooking some BBQ that smelled so delicious. He was all serious, probably have been here for many years
This is a place that I have been few times but going there to capture a story made me see the place differently. I could have researched more or interviewed few vendors but today was a hectic day where I had to do a lot of product development tasks for PhotoBlog. I am doing this to force myself to take a break from work. Even in those conditions, I got lot more satisfaction out of this storytelling.
