Walking out of China town, and take a turn in one of the streets to find yourself in a neighborhood where cultural diversity is a day to day reality: Rasta people, latinos, asian, alternatives, new wave youth, shoppers ... you name it!

The Market can be a real treat for foodies. There are some good cheese shops, butchers, and ethnic food stores, some of which have food stalls inside where you can grab an inexpensive snack. There are also some cafes and full-service restaurants scattered through the market, including a couple of vegetarian/vegan places.

The houses, the shops and everything around seem to have a history to tell, a soul.

  1. You know I've never been to Canada and my son stays there and I do believe he's told me about the Kensington Market too. He loved it, he said it reminded him of Green Market Square in Cape Town and going by your photos I think he's right. Love the vibey colors and the chaotic arty look. I will need to make a plan to go visit him and maybe, just maybe we can go to the market together ;-)

    I agree to your statement that the houses, the shops and everything around us seem to have a history to tell. When I have a time to reflect to life, I sit to a comfortable and peaceful place, for example in a unpopulated park, look around and feel the vibes around me. That is so refreshing. You have such a nice trip by the way. I like the photos! So colorful!
