On a Sunday, The St Laurence Antique Markets, held in St Laurence Hall, in Toronto cater for bric a brac, antiques, art deco glass and anything in between. During the week the markets operate as farmers markets and food stalls.

We were fascinated that something so delicate and old was still in working condition. Ivan was very interesting, he pointed out the workings of the old watches.
St Laurence hall was built in 1850 as a meeting place for the locals. It was restored in 1967 and is now a magnificent historical building, that is the venue for weddings and special occasions
