Kensington Market is a vibrant area, said to be among the best street markets in North America. I loved ambling along, taking the atmosphere in, smelling the smells of faraway places, watching locals go about their business and tourists like me taking photos and window-shopping. Diversity is the name of the game.

People from all walks of life live and shop at Kensington Market. Like the lady in grey, who happens to be a bloke, doing the shopping:
Spices galore! The air smelled of exotic spices and delicious foods: Chinese, Indian, Thai, Chilean, Mexican; you name, it’s there:
Gioconda is eyeing some belts. Which one should she buy?
Alternative means of transport?
Kensington Market is one of the most fun areas to stroll and shop in Toronto.
