Toronto’s Kensington Market –
Kensington Avenue is a block-long strip of pimped-out Victorian houses, which sell all their belongings that they no longer want on their front yards, creating a never ending garage-sale atmosphere but with much higher price tags. Exile (22 Kensington Ave) and Courage My Love (14 Kensington Ave) are two of the best. There is also the would-be circus which performers in the park, why not grab a coffee in the corner café next to a grizzled old maven plus watching the spectacle slide by is the next best way to get an insider’s perspective on the market.
