I remember the first time I visited Kensington
Market Toronto. It was not long after I moved here. I knew in general
where it was but I just kindof winged it after I got off the subway.
I now know I ended up on the wrong street to see anything more than a
few food stalls and didn't venture far enough to see all of the
Kensington Market area.
Toronto's Kensington Market is a mixture of residential, food markets,
restaurants and shopping. The main shopping throughfare is found along
Augusta Avenue but you can find shops on Nassau and
Bungalow – mix of vintage & new clothing, mid
century modern furniture
Model Citizen - clothing
Cinderella Vintage Shop
Tibetan Village Store
The Pearl Gift Shop
Sub Rosa Vintage
Courage My Love
Indo East Trading
Red Arrow Bikes
Fashion Old & New
The Fairies Pyjamas
King of Kensington
Tibet Gift Shop
Casta Brava Leather
Food wise you will find gourmet burger joints, Mexican food and many
vegitarian restaurants. The neighbourhood is bordered by Spadina to the
East which means Chinatown is in close proximity; you will see its
influence the closer to Dundas you walk.
Many of the small grocery stores and food stalls line Baldwin Street.
Visiting the Kensington Market area is a must any time of the year but
even better during the summer months with pedestrian Sundays.
