St. Lawrence Market South renovating lobby at main entrance
The City of Toronto's St. Lawrence Market is giving its main entrance lobby a makeover. Beginning Sunday, June 26, renovation work will begin at the main entrance facing Front Street. The lobby will be closed to the public for about four weeks as it is transformed into a more attractive and more accessible space.

The new design will feature automatic sliding doors, better way-finding signage, improved lighting and a modernized design that complements the building's historical architecture.

During the renovations, St. Lawrence Market merchants and vendors will still be open for business and customers are welcome to continue to shop at the market. Although the South Market's lobby will be closed, all other entrances into the building will be open. The North Market will not be affected by the renovation.

All updates regarding the renovation will be posted at
