That’s right – 0 pictures. I took no pictures of Kensington Market. To be fair, I was there to shop, not document.
Here, have a photo courtesy of Wikipedia:
Kensington Market is a nice place for a stroll – especially if the weather’s beautiful (and it was the day that I went). There are lots of stores to just wander through (usually they’re not very wide, but they’re long). Stores also had some of their wares outside, hanging on fences or racks or lines, so you didn’t have to go in to get an idea of what they’re selling.
My main thought while I was browsing was that the Market would be a great place to costume shop. If you needed an outfit for a play or for Halloween, you would likely be able to find it here (or something similar).
My goal was to find a sundress, but I wasn’t successful. There were lots of other items, like t-shirts, I would have liked to buy, but I had a small suitcase and didn’t want to over-shop (my restraint was good – too good). If I lived in Toronto this area would be dangerous. Maybe next time I’ll pack less and purchase clothes to wear while I’m in the city.
The market also has plenty of places to purchase food. Dana wanted tacos, but the place she wanted to go was too busy. So we walked down the street, turned the corner, and found another Mexican restaurant. I forget what it’s called, but it has a patio, a bar downstairs and seating inside. I can’t remember the street it was on. It was good, though. The guacamole was delicious.
Not only do I have 0 pictures for you, but I also can’t remember the name of the place we ate at… Such good reporting skills.
