KENSINGTON MRKT. IS AN EAST VILLAGE, VENICE BOARDWALK AND WOODSTOCK ROLLED INTO ONE

Kensington Market is a National Historic Site and the locals fight hard to keep it that way. There are no big box stores. The multicultural neighbourhood occupies a large tract of land from College Street to the north, Spadina on the east, Dundas on the south and Bathurst Street to the west. The area is filled with food stores of every kind, a variety of upscale & downscale restaurants, nightclubs, coffee bars, vintage clothing shops, synagogues, and re-jigged architecture of every description.
