Toronto’s mixed bag
Originally a Jewish colony, Kensington now fetuses a bit of everybody and everything. Rent a Charter Bus in Toronto, it won’t take you into the market itself because the streets are too narrow. But wherever you go in you’ll find goodies and good eats from around the globe. Be sure to check out the second-hand stores Kensington’s full of them and you can usually find better stuff there than you’d find at any shopping mall.
Having visited all the stores in the neighbourhood over the years, we like to consider ourselves Kensington Market experts.
In our humble opinion, Kensington Market is THE place in Toronto to get a huge variety of authentic, affordable eats within walking distance of each other, and that is why it is one of our favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto. After countless hours of research (and a lot of eating!), we’ve hand-picked a variety of different stores that we feel best to represent distinctive threads in the fabric that is Toronto’s rich food culture, as well as a selection of stories about the neighbourhood, stores and food. We even worked with one of the stores to put a special twist on a Canadian dish, just for the tour! All of the stores and samples were tested by countless locals and tourists, and we’ve tweaked the tour over time to arrive at the perfect mix of variety, amount and deliciousness for the majority of our guests.
After the tour, you’ll probably want to stick around the area. Shop at some of the vintage stores in the area, listen to some of the buskers in the area, or take selfies at the many graffiti murals in the neighbourhood. Feel free to ask your guide for more suggestions during the tour, as we would love to share more about one of our favourite spots in the city!
