This is the second and final segment on the St. Lawrence Market. Part 1 focused on the produce sold at this market. This gallery focuses on the rest of the items sold here -- seafood, meat, cheese and such.
The meat selections at the market are extensive, most presented in coolers and covered in plastic so they did not photograph well. The seafood selection was as large as any I've ever seen in a non-ocean based city, also very fresh and tempting. Hundreds of cheeses were for sale, some from Canada (especially Quebec) but many from Europe.
A special note about a traditional and popular prepared food item you can buy at this market, at the Carousel Bakery, namely the "peameal" bacon sandwich. Canadian bacon (called "back bacon" here, as opposed to "side bacon") is made from the lean loin, not pork belly, and historically was rolled in ground peas to aid in preservation of the meat. Now cornmeal is used instead of peameal, but the name "peameal" endures. To prepare the sandwich, the peameal bacon is sliced fairly thickly, grilled and served on a roll. It is delicious! Photos of this are at the bottom of the gallery. This sandwich originated in Toronto and is one of those local foods those who watch the Food Network make a pilgrimage to try.
