Doors…to market

Kensington Market, Toronto 2015 

Kensington Market a walkable bohemian neighbourhood stacked with vintage boutiques, indie shops, arts spaces, grocers, bakeries, cheese shops, trendy bars, cafes, fine dining and casual diners.

What attracts me are the windows and doors, resembling cut-outs, in the multicultural ambience of ‘plains-clothe’ houses with their harlequin-esque facades camouflaging the antiquity of constructions along  Augusta Avenue, Nassau St, Baldwin St. and Kensington Av.. 

Kensington Market is an eclectic multi-cultural neighbourhood bordered by College Street on the north, Spadina Avenue on the east , Dundas St. W on the south and Bathurst St on the west.

The market is a visual and culinary delight and a designated National historic Site of Canada (2006).
