The Wellington Market at The Well is Toronto’s newest casual culinary experience that features over 900 seats, a 3,400-person capacity, and a mix of merchants that celebrate the best of the city’s culinary options.

The Well is a joint venture between RioCan REIT and Allied Properties REIT.  The Market, designed by Giannone Petricone Associates Inc. Architects, will enhance the existing culinary offering that features 12 restaurants such as the Wellington Restaurants and the Aera on the 8 Spadina rooftop. Canada’s first-ever Prince Street Pizza location will also be part of this culinary scene.

“The opening of Wellington Market is the result of the collective efforts of our dedicated team, tenants, community and partners who came together to bring a one-of-a-kind experience to Toronto. We are grateful for the tremendous efforts of this visionary team, whose dedication and collaboration brought us to this significant milestone,” said Oliver Harrison, SVP, leasing and tenant experience, RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust. “We are excited to share this evolution of the Toronto food and drink scene and have everyone experience it in their own unique way.”

With more than 70,000 square feet and fully liquor-licensed, Wellington Market aims to provide a one-of-a-kind experience. Visitors can grab a drink from the central bar, The Pier, and discover various dining options, such as Japadog and La Cubana.

The Market is positioned to cater to the demands of the 11,000 residents and employees who will live and work at The Well, and the approximately 80,000 residents living nearby within walking distance.

“Creating the ideal mix of merchants resulted from a thoughtful, curated, and strategic process informed by
extensive culinary research and outreach beyond Toronto’s borders,” said Harrison. “This collection of food options cannot be found under one roof anywhere in the city. It pays tribute to the city’s rich culinary history and offers an inspiring balance of new and well-known staples to its food scene.”

Wellington Market has been carefully designed with various entrances, including a series of folding glass walls that open to create seamless transitions to the lower ground level of The Well’s Retail Walk.

The market forms part of The Well and currently features 35 tenants. Additional merchants are set to open in the coming months.
