Enjoy a Day in Toronto’s Famous Kensington Market

Kensington market is a popular place for a reason. It’s why there are all those listicles and blogs posts — although be warned, many are suspect. Kensington Market is a must-hang in Toronto and worthy of your time to explore and try new things. First a word about what it is and it’s history before describing the wisest places to depart with your hard earned cash.


Kensington was largely home to Toronto’s Jewish population for a time awhile ago. The city’s Chinese residents also then set up a base there, and it’s still Chinatown but really it’s an eclectic mix. A mosaic of people with a certain bent.
