A great place to wander around, shop for cool vintage clothing or fresh vegetables and funky decor items. Small, local businesses that are family owned. Lots of local culture and colour too. A true Toronto experience.

One of the most culturally diverse, funky, artful and interesting neighbourhoods in Toronto. Worth seeing for both historical context and progressive shops and initiatives.

You can travel the world without leaving Toronto - visiting cool neighbourhoods like Kensington - take an afternoon and wander the cafes, Jamaican shops and unique shops.

I had already read something and watched a couple of documentaries about this corner of the world. But nothing compares to the real stuff when the opportunity arises to check it live in its true colors. And indeed, the district is everything described on books,...More

It is always worth it to take a stroll through Kensington Market. There is a shop/restaurant for everyone in your party. The independent bakeries and small boutiques immediately draw you in, and the thrift/vintage stores that crowd the neighbourhood often offer wonderful finds! One of...More

Enjoyed walking around this area. Very laid back place. It reminded me of Camden Town in London. Worth spending a couple of hours here. Plenty cafes and eating places. Street art is good fun to look at.

By far one of the coolest spots in Toronto! Tribal Eye is a must, also any of the small shops that have really amazing things. Anything you want to find!

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Kensington Market is a neighbourhood and it is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It is a Bohemian place where you enjoy musical groups at night in the cafes.
I was just wondering if there are public washrooms in the area??

Hi there, I believe there are in the park but I am not sure I would want to really use them. The park tends to be frequented by shady people and I have seen cops ticket people for drugs there on several occasions. I imagine... More
