Kensington Market & Chinatown in detail

Planning Tips

Top Tips

The last Sunday of the month from May to October, Augusta Ave and the surrounding streets are pedestrian only to make room for the crowds, food vendors, live music and general revelry in Kensington Market.

Local Experiences

  • Eating late Late-night dining in Chinatown is definitely a thing; head to House of Gourmet to rub elbows with locals of all stripes.
  • Grazing Kensington Market is a parade of hole-in-the-wall eateries, such as Seven Lives and Dipped Donuts. Move from place to place trying different flavors and cuisines.
  • Parking During the week there are often open spots in the parking garage on Baldwin near Kensington. On weekends, don’t bother driving. Streetcars stop along Spadina, just a block away.
