St. Lawrence Market

Rising at dawn on a Saturday morning could mean only one thing: a trip to St. Lawrence Market. Few other reasons could stir me so early but the opportunity to shop for fresh food at this Toronto landmark. The farmer’s market feel to the place certainly beats the generic corporate warehouse-style place otherwise frequented.

Getting there early means less of a crowd getting there and moving about the vast selection of vendors. Missing breakfast to get there early meant I had an excuse to indulge in some of the delicious food there ready to be eaten. In past years I would have shown no restraint but lately the adoption of a calorie-reduced lifestyle has me being more selective. In the end I settled down for a quick “breakfast” of smoked salmon washed down with a double espresso.

The colours and selection can’t be beat and there were hours to take it all in. I’ve provided a few photos as a sample of all there is to offer.

It’s worth noting that amongst the flower vendors the sunflower seems to be incredibly popular and those buying seemed to agree.

Large tables both in the middle of the venue and lining the walls provided an abundance of produce.
Enough bunches of carrots and other vegetables to feed an army.
Fans of the Radish were not forgotten.
Flowers of virtually any kind are always nearby.
The meat counter; one of several where available is anything from bargain cuts to luxurious extremes. I settled for somewhere in the middle.

Sushi!

Seems almost a waste to simply eat and enjoy our recent Valentines Day dinner. Why not seize the opportunity and take a few quick photos before it’s all gone?

Food Photography

It’s not often I attempt food photography and even less frequent make any serious attempt. Armed with my trusted iPhone the results are often debatable and highly questionable. Although I have no business being anywhere near the world of food preparation occasionally I’m a tourist snapping the odd photo.

Presented here may be my most credible venture into food photography so be kind in any possible critique. My ego bruises easily. 🤣

Mystery Lunch

Odd incident from earlier today. Had things to do during the morning and arrived back around noon. It took a couple hours to then get the more pressing matters taken care of after which I decided to take a break and check on the snowfall. Opening the door I looked down only to discover the “Mystery Lunch” sitting there with no tags or labels. Perhaps a delivery error? Perhaps left by the junk food gnomes? The world may never know the true answer!

Mystery Meal for Sure!!
