We finally have an official opening date! One of Toronto’s highly anticipated hubs, Waterworks Food Hall is officially opening this June. The European-style food hall will be home to more than 20 different food stalls, a sitdown restaurant and much more. Here’s everything you need to know.

If you’ve strolled along Toronto’s Fashion District, then you’ve most likely come across the massive Waterworks Food Hall, located at 499 Richmond Street West.

And yes, this is the same spot where the beloved Lee’s Restaurant on King Street, relocated to.

The 55,000 sq. ft. space has been repurposed as a European-style food hall and will host more than 20 different food stalls featuring culinary favourites from around the world, according to the establishment.

“We are committed to preserving and revitalizing architectural landmarks that enhance the attraction and livability of Toronto’s neighbourhoods, and we are so pleased to be opening the Waterworks Food Hall in the King West community,” said Eve Lewis, President and CEO of Woodcliffe Landmark Properties.

“This project has been a true labour of love for us, and we are so proud of how it turned out.”

These are just some of the many vendors to expect when you visit this June:

More vendors will be announced closer to when the food hall opens.

You’ll also be able to check out SOBR Market, downtown Toronto’s first non-alcoholic bottle shop, at the food hall.

With the aroma of freshly prepared cuisines still lingering from the recent opening of Queen’s Cross Food Hall, and the recent openings at The Well, the announcement of Waterworks Food Hall’s launch adds another exciting chapter to Toronto’s culinary landscape.

It’s safe to say Toronto loves food halls. And we certainly can’t wait to try them all.
