St. Patrick's Market is one of three public markets created in Toronto in the 19th century along with St. Lawrence Market and St. Andrew's Market. The lot at what is now 238 Queen Street West (at John Street) was designated for a public market for St. Patrick's Ward in 1836 when D’Arcy Boulton bequeathed the property to the city with the express provision that it was to be used forever as a public market. The original market building, a two-story structure with a tower, was built in 1854. The current single story structure was built in 1912, after the previous structure was destroyed by fire, and was leased from 1929 or earlier to A. Stork & Sons, a live poultry slaughterhouse which offered "fresh killed poultry and cut up chickens" for sale on the premises. Stork & Sons closed in the 1980s and, in 1988, the city signed a 50-year lease with Market Inc. to host a "exciting retail mini food market" with "an ambiance similar to the St. Lawrence Market", including a bakery, and stands selling meat, seafood, fruit, vegetables and "food stands with prepared and unprepared meals within its market".

When it opened, it was claimed to be "the largest structure in North America designed exclusively to display passenger vehicles".
