Kensington Market

A year-round cacophony of vendors hawking everything from fresh fish to dress socks, Kensington Market is the place to get whatever your heart desires. The food choices available are a gesture towards Toronto's multi-ethnic population. Kensington Market is also known for its second hand vintage clothing stores.


Toronto is a city with no shortage of shopping options. Whether it is a busy market you're after (St. Lawrence will certainly meet your expectations), or more of a "classic" shopping mall experience — Toronto has it all. Check out the Toronto Eaton Center (the city's largest mall) or plan your trip to one of Toronto's outlet malls with great bargains on brand name fashions. Head to Chinatown to browse through exotic herbs and teas and don't miss the city's many thrift shops in search for gifts to bring your loved ones.
