A Winter Walk in Kensington Market

globe-sculpture-sign-kensington-market-toronto

This is Kensington Market, an area that we go to all the time, to get vegetables and fruit, spices and international ingredients. There’s a shop representing most every nationality, tucked somewhere in the tightly packed streets. It’s been a market area for over a hundred years.

It’s not only food here though; you can also find awesome vintage clothing, used record, army surplus, independent restaurants, bars and cafes.

Also, above and in between the stores are homes … lots of people live in the neighbourhood too.

It’s a great and popular place, and we certainly are not alone in our love for Kensington.

Regular visitors to my blog will have seen quite a bit of this part of town in pictures before because it’s so picturesque, but while I’ve shown you what it looks like in spring (here), summer (here) and autumn (here), I noticed that I’ve never shown it in the wintertime, when things are covered in snow.

In fact, an image search indicates that very few people, if any at all, have posted pictures of the area during the winter. If you didn’t know otherwise, you might think that the market closes down when the going gets cold. I’m here to show you otherwise!

No matter how gray the weather there is still lots of colour to be found in Kensington Market.

Thank you for taking a look.
