Kensington Market may be small but it is mighty. With a long history as a meeting place, food and clothing market, Kensington is just as popular and prominent as it was 100 years ago. This ever-changing neighbourhood has been home to the Jewish and Italian communities as well as Chinese and Caribbean and many more. The vibe of this eclectic place incorporates all it’s past history as well as it’s vibrant present even being proclaimed a National Historic Site of Canada in 2006. There aren’t a huge number of Toronto condos here, although this is a neighbourhood very much in demand with amazing fresh produce markets, restaurants and more.
The Market itself is the main draw here. Mostly along Augusta, Nassau, Baldwin and Kensington streets, it is home to some of the best open air markets in the city. Featuring organic fruit and veg along with sustainably caught meat, fish and coffee, there is something here for all. Vintage and underground clothing stores used to be the main focus and although some of the originals can still be found, there are fewer than past years, having given way to cafes and restaurants from all over the world. The main streets here are narrow and filled with people doing their weekly shop, Kensington is know to have one of the highest pedestrian rates in the city, in the warmer months the area is closed down to all traffic for Pedestrian Sundays, which brings people out in droves. Toronto Western Hospital is conveniently located in the neighbourhood and there are a number of happening and busy neighbourhoods such as Queen West and The Annex that are within walking distance so you can get a bit of culture without having to wander too far.
If you are living in a condo in Kensington Market, walking is the easiest way to get around, everything you’d ever need in within a couple of blocks. Going further afield is easy with almost all the streetcar lines running through the area or a couple of blocks away. Driving? Easy access to all major routes around the city can be had and there is an onramp to the Gardiner from the bottom of Spadina.
