This popular flea and antique market used to take place at St. Lawrence Market north, however, it has recently moved address and all of their wondrous vintage wares and tears can be found at The Esplanade in Toronto, Ontario. Sunday Antique Market was originally established at St Lawrence Market in 1890.

Customers come back time and time again for a fantastic display of vintage goods and retro memorabilia. Expect to find unique and eccentric items, such as vintage fantasy card holders, arty postcards, typewriters, floral curtains, mid-century furniture, secondhand garments, and vintage cameras such as Plaubel Makina W67 and Kiev 88.

Vendors at Sunday Antique Market are friendly and very happy to chat away with customers about all of their items and knowledge about antiques and vintage products. If you have any questions or are looking for something particular, then don’t be shy or hold back – put yourself out there! Merchants are also willing to negotiate the prices of their stock, in fact, they expect most people to offer them an alternative to their original asking price.

This market can get quite crowded and isn’t particularly big in comparison to other flea markets in Ontario. Also, there is no admission fee – which can attract a lot of people who come along just as something to do with their Sunday afternoon. Overall, Sunday Antique Market is definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for a wide selection of bric a brac and eclectic vintage treasures.

  1. A Sunday Trip Down Memory Lane

    Earlier this year – the first weekend of May – I came across the St. Lawrence Sunday Antique Market quite by accident. This was the weekend of the Jane’s Walks, and the one I took in started in Parliament Square Park and finished at the Esplanade and Jarvis Street, which is a stone’s throw from the St. Lawrence Market.

    That market is closed on Sundays. However, the antique market, temporarily located south of the St.Lawrence Market, was open. I’d walk through the aisles of the market and look at the antique and vintage merchandise. The merchants were friendly and the merchandise was reasonably priced. It wouldn’t be too surprising that I would return to the antique market for another visit in the near future.

  2. I’ve visited this market several times over the past year or two. The merchandise is reasonably priced. I bought some wristwatches and other jewellery to wear. During one visit, I started my Christmas shopping and bought some crystal wine glasses to give as a present. It’s a good place to buy things for your home – furniture, light fixtures, a telephone, and some pictures to hang on the wall.

  3. Looking Forward to Reopening of Antique Market

    Recently, I’ve learned that the Sunday Antique Market @ St. Lawrence will be reopening on August 29, 2021. Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic and over concerns about safety, the market has been closed for several weeks or months. The last day I came down to the market was March 15, the day it closed down earlier than usual – and shut down.

    I’m looking forward to coming down to the market someday soon, and check out the antique and vintage merchandise, maybe get a jump start on Christmas shopping.

    When weather allows for it, the market spills out onto the street (outside 125 The Esplanade) and northward on to Market Street, under the western overhang of St. Lawrence Market. People could enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while checking out the antiques for sale. There will be more than a few warm sunny days before the snow flies.

  4. Looking Forward to Reopening of Antique Market

    St. Lawrence Antique Market (or SLAMmer) reopens again!

    Tomorrow, the Sunday Antique Market at St. Lawrence – also known as the St. Lawrence Antique Market (SLAM) – reopens again, and I’m looking forward to visiting it and checking out the antique and vintage merchandise. The weekly market has been closed (or SLAM-med shut) recently because of the COVID19 pandemic’s Omicron wave, so far the pandemic’s largest and (hopefully) the last.

    We sure missed the market.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
