Sure, Toronto offers some very decent representations of Italian food, and you may even find some genuine Italian products. But if you want the good stuff, you gotta go to the source right? Flying to Italy every other week to stock up the pantry is probably not very realistic, but a trip to the Eataly Food Market in Toronto just might be the next best thing.

Super curious to see what this popular European foodhall/marketplace was all about? Well we tagged along with Samantha to find out if the hype was worth it.

With numerous locations around the globe, this is the first Eataly to open in Canada, and it is massive! Spanning 50,000 square feet over three floors, it offers various restaurants, cafés, takeout counters, a bakery, a cooking school and even its own brewery.

With so much to see and taste, it's hard to know where to start. Sample on pasta and pizzas made fresh right in front of your eyes or stuff yourself with cannolis at the cannoli station. You can even sample on the best Italian delicacies like extra-virgin olive oils, over 400 types of cheeses, and a taste of the hazelnut spread fountain. That's just what you can eat in-store!

Bring home a taste of Italy thanks to the huge selection of 10,000 local and imported products to choose from at the Eataly market. Not sure what to do with all of those amazing products, you can step into the intimate cooking school at this location. Yeah, Eataly is quite literally a foodie paradise.
