Shop ’till you drop

We start our morning at Starbuck’s, watching the cast of people at College and Yonge.

Then off to Kensington market (SW of Spadina and College), just a few blocks from the hotel. We arrive just as the shops start to open around 10.

Kensington is a wonderfully crowded and random mix of ethnic fresh food shops, bakeries, cafes, vintage and eclectic clothing stores, cheese shops (180+ cheeses in one place with samples), vintage music stores, brightly painted Victorian houses converted to stores, and much, much more – all of which spill out onto and fill the front yards.

Kensington Shops

An incredible mix of sights, music, people and foods that defies description.
