Food market in Toronto named best in the world

It's no secret to locals, but the St. Lawrence Market, one of Toronto's gastronomic institutions, can now qualify as world-renowned. The market took top spot on National Geographic's list of theworld's best food markets.
The list is part of National Geographic's "Food Journeys of a Lifetime," which spotlights the best food experiences around the world.
The 200-year old market ranked just above New York's Union Square Greenmarket and St. Lucia's Castries Market.
"This farmers market emporium has operated since 1803, when it cohabited with Toronto's city hall. The area's mix of homes and businesses showcases urban regeneration. More than 120 retailers dispense everything from seafood to coffee," National Geographic posts.
"We are excited to be recognized on an international scale. The locals always knew this," market spokesperson Rebecca Grima tells the Toronto Sun.
Grima credits vendors' passion for food, excellent customer service, and wide selection for the market's world-class reputation.
"St. Lawrence Market is engrained within our city's culture. It has helped build the neighbourhood. When you look at all the merchants and the vendors in the market — it is so multicultural," Grimatells
