Public survey about St. Lawrence Market's hours of operation now open
The City of Toronto is conducting a survey to review the operating hours of the main building (South Market building) of St. Lawrence Market and evaluate how operational improvements can help the Market better serve visitors and residents of Toronto.
In March 2020, St. Lawrence Market was in the process of launching a pilot project with expanded hours of operation, including public hours on Sundays and weekday evenings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the project was paused and the Market modified and reduced hours of operation to comply with COVID-19 health measures. As the City works to rebuild, the Market is now again considering relaunching expanded hours of operation.
The public survey is being conducted to verify how expanded hours of operation for the Market could best serve the public's needs. COVID-19 has impacted many aspects of our daily lives. This survey aims to understand the impact that COVID-19 has had on food shopping patterns, Market visitation and the level of demand for additional hours to access the Market.
The public is encouraged to provide their input and complete the 10-minute St. Lawrence Market Hours of Operation survey. The survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/stlawrencemarkethours
. The survey will be live until Monday, April 18.
Survey results will be reviewed along with other current data and past research conducted to verify what the expanded Market hours of operation could be. Research and consultation on the hours of operation has been done and included analysis of local shopping data, comparative analysis of local and international markets, public consultation, and consultation with Market merchants and stakeholders.
The South Market currently operates five days a week, Tuesdays through Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. It's closed on Sundays and Mondays.
