Tourists and Torontonians alike will soon have even more access to one of the city’s most delicious spaces, as the St. Lawrence Market embarks on a test-run of Sunday hours.
The year-long pilot project will begin on March 15 and will affect the market’s South Building, otherwise known as the main building.
The market hosted a public consultation in early October, which offered space for community input on the concept of changing up the market’s hours.
The goal, the city says, is to optimize the hub’s times of operation.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how many residents and visitors embrace Sunday and evening shopping at St. Lawrence Market,” said Mayor John Tory in a release. “The new Hours of Operation Pilot Project modernizes the market’s operations and ensures that more people have the opportunity to experience this amazing, historic Toronto destination.”
Currently, the South Market’s hours are from 8 am to 6 pm from Tuesdays to Thursdays, 8 am to 7 pm on Fridays, 5 am to 5 pm on Saturdays, and closed Sundays and Mondays.
Under the new pilot, the building will be open Tuesdays through to Fridays from 9 am to 8 pm, Saturdays from 7 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from 10 am to 5 pm.
“The revised hours will let the St. Lawrence community take full advantage of everything the market has to offer,” said Toronto City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam.
