A Day in the Life at St. Lawrence Market


Did you know that Sam Crignano, the CEO of Cityzen, actually lives in the St. Lawrence neighbourhood? If there’s anyone who knows how great of an area it is, it’s him.

Sam gave us all the details on what his ideal day in the area entails so that you can get a taste of what life is like here.

Sam, of course, starts his days grabbing a coffee at Balzac’s on Market Street (he loves his espresso!). On a perfect Saturday, Sam heads into the St. Lawrence Market to check out the abundance of choices it offers for dinner! He then might get his hair done at Allan Parss, one of the city’s top salons, or shop for designer threads at Garrison Bespoke. If the day is still young, Sam also told us that one of his favourite things to do in the city is head down to Sugar Beach. There’s nothing like putting your feet in the sand dipping your toes in the lake’s edge!

When it comes to restaurants, it was impossible for Sam to pick just one. There are so many around here, so the Crignano’s like to switch it up – every meal is a new experience.

Having great places like these within walking distance is really convenient for him because of how busy he is during the week. It’s nice to be able to ditch the car and get all your errands done within walking distance.

Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
