“Say, Cheese!” – St. Lawrence Market, Toronto

“Say Cheese” - St. Lawrence Market, Toronto

“Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”
― G.K. Chesterton

The St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is marvelous for its sights, sounds, and smells. It hearkens back to markets of old, with vendors selling their wares in the hustle and bustle of a busy market.

When thinking of a title for this image I was going to call it “Everything Comes with a Price”, as I found the large price tags on every item on display extremely distracting. THis particular vendor is more of a ‘self-serve’ shop, where all the cheeses are on display and you can just pick one from the bin. The other cheese shops in the market have some cheeses in bins for purchase but have opted for the merchant model, where the cheeses are behind a counter and the cut fresh what you want and charge according to price and weight.
