Whyte Avenue (also known as 82 Avenue) is an arterial road in south-central Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It became the main street of the City of Strathcona as it formed, and now runs through Old Strathcona. It was named in 1891 after Sir William Whyte, who was superintendent of the CPR's western division from 1886 to 1897 and was knighted by King George V in 1911. Old Strathcona is Edmonton's main arts and entertainment district, and is also a shopping hub for local residents and students at the nearby University of Alberta. Whyte Avenue, now a heritage area, is at the heart of this district, housing many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Whyte Ave. A stroll along this vibrant part of the City and you will think you've gone away to some quaint but HIP town. The people, the ethnic venues and the huge variety of shops make this a number one fun spot to check out.

Love this place, so fun in the summer, lots of trendy shops and little vendors along the road. There is an amazing farmers market as well, how ever i do believe is is seasonal.
