Located in the heart of Toronto, Kensington Market is the city's beating heart, and a must-visit before flying back to Boston. Imagine all of the beauty and excitement of Toronto's world-renowned diversity compressed into a single neighbourhood.
Kensington is just that with its vibrant Victorian houses—that double as vintage clothing storefronts— and gallery-worthy street art. The area grew and thrived throughout the 20th-century as immigrants from Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and Latin America came to call Toronto home.
During Pedestrian Sundays (when the streets are closed to all traffic), Kensington feels even more like a flea market in a far off tropical city with its charming combination of old world and new. No condos or high rises creep up onto the edges of this culturally rich community, which also features Toronto's most unique and authentic eateries, not to mention some of the city's finest people watching opportunities.
Whether you're in search of vegan treats, a drink on a patio, food from around the world, vintage clothing, handmade goods, or eclectic street performances, there's something for everyone to eat, see, hear, and enjoy.
