      Kensington Market : Culture, Food & Innovation

      By The Sidewalk Food Tours provides guided walking food tour of Kensington Market, Toronto Your tour guides for this event are passionate foodies with deep love for Kensington Market. So bring your appetite for diverse foods and curiosity to explore the marketplace, and we will show you around the beautiful neighborhood. What We'll Do On this guided tour of the Kensington Market, get ready to explore this multi-faceted marketplace, Toronto’s first neighborhood to be declared one of Canada's national historic sites in 2006. Famous for its fresh produce, cheese, meats, bread and desserts, bulk spices, nuts, flowers, marijuana and vintage clothing, the area also teems with a variety of restaurants, cafés and bars. The shops in Kensington Market spill out onto the sidewalk, giving the market a vibrant street culture unique to the city of Toronto. Taste Kensington Markets' food entrepreneurs. Partnerships between environmentally-consious farmers in southwestern Ontario's rich agriculture area and food creators push the boundaries of Ontario cuisine. We visit a Paris-trained baker, a hipster butcher, we sample artisanal master cheesemakers' craft and savour secret family recipes from Tibet and the central highlands of Mexico We will discover ever-changing street art in an alley that shoppers seldom see. We'll make sure you notice a black & white portrait of a celebrated jazzman who jammed with the best musicians in Kensington when Kensington was home to hippies. (Hint: he played saxaphone) Behind brightly-painted exteriors and unassuming streetfronts lurks a new generation of makers and restauranteurs
