Kensington Market is a favorite neighborhood among visitors to Toronto and locals alike. The latter seem to be fighting a never-ending war against further “development” and chain stores moving into the area, and then those actions are criticized/trolled by other “pro-business” types for trying to hold on to some kind of magic they may have never seen or understood for themselves.
Pedestrian Sundays don’t start until next month, but right now the weather’s at a point where there’s at least one or two days a week that are nice enough for a stroll through the market, and that means for an active poster scene!
