Kensington Market is a popular spot for me and my friends to go to after our Sunday morning dragon boat practices. Mainly because it’s pretty close by, the parking is cheap, and there’s a large variety of food to choose from.
I think I have gone there about 3-4 times this summer alone and have definitely tried out a good handful of what Kensington has to offer. My friend Jeremy lived in the area during University so he was very knowledgeable about the area, and we followed his recommendations entirely!
And the one thing that makes Kensington Market even better, is Pedestrian Sundays! On the last Sunday of each month, the roads within Kensington Market gets closed off for pedestrians only and many of the restaurants will set up outdoor booths in addition to various merchandise booths. There will also be many local street performers or interactive activities (such as a giant Scrabble, a mini teacup stacking challenge, and even badminton) throughout the market, so it is definitely an exciting sight to see.
While the weather is still warm, hit up Kensington Market on their last Pedestrian Sunday of the summer on August 31st. But if anything, it will still continue on September 28 and October 26, 2014.
Next time I visit, I would like to try out The Grilled Cheese, Hibiscus for their speciality ice cream, or this Torito Tapas Bar.
