The St Lawrence Market is situated in the historic heart of Old York and offers everything from fine dining, theatre, elegant home furnishing shops to a farmer's market all in a historical surrounding. The Esplanade runs through the St Lawrence and has a wide array of specialty shops and services to meet residents' needs. In the center of this historic district is the St Lawrence Market which offers over 50 specialty vendors and is considered one of the top 25 markets in the world by Food and Wine Magazine. Merchants sell every kind and cut of meat, sausage, cheese, fish and fresh pasta. Condos in this area are in high demand not only for the area amenities but the close proximity to the Financial District. Just further east is the Distillery District, a national historical site set in 13 acres of well preserved Victorian Industrial Architecture. Once the largest distillery in the British Empire, today the district is a pedestrian only village with galleries, theatres, restaurants and boutique retailers. Currently there are a couple of older condominiums and new ones slated for construction.
