Streets are full of life and the shops are varied and plentiful. Lots of variety. A good spot to sit and watch the world go by. Huge variety in food choices.

Had a variety of trinket stores, clothing, restaurant pop ups and a few nice outdoor places to grab some drinks. It's probably four block radius so easily walkable and packed with stores. Made for a fun afternoon.

This tiny part of Toronto is absolutely delightful for those who like to explore the fabric of a city. It bustles. It's a collection of unique shops, food, etc. This is NOT high end... It's a down-to-earth slice of life!

I don't k ow quite what I expected. A market? It's actually more of a neifhbourhood, which I found slightly dull and run down. Loved the car with all the vegetation growing out of it though!

Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
