The Market Gallery animates the second floor of the South St. Lawrence Market which encloses all that remains of Toronto’s original 19th-century Front Street City Hall council chamber, operating from 1845-1899. The historic site presents a variety of changing exhibits related to the art, culture, and history of Toronto. The gallery’s signature fan windows, which once overlooked Toronto’s harbour, today overlook the main floor of the market featuring various food vendors.
The Market Gallery includes: 1,955 square-feet of display space on the second floor; and 1,700 square-feet of office, workroom, and storage space on the third floor for a total of 3,655 square-feet.
Visitors can explore the sights and sounds of the historic market with a visit to the Market Gallery, which offers a treasure chest of collections, exhibits, and educational programs.
