Kensington Market, through the eyes of a Bohemian Spirit

Kensington Market is one of the liveliest historical neighbourhoods in Toronto, with its quaint Victorian buildings and narrow streets and alleyways. A neighbourhood community, developed by Jewish Immigrants during the 1920s, who set up businesses and a synagogue.

Today the Market is a rich mosaic of multicultural business run by immigrants from Europe, the Caribbean, Middle East, South America, and Asia.
A sensory trip around the world, with a treasure trove of vintage clothing shops, ethnic restaurants, cafés, bakeries, delis, meat shop, fishmonger, produce, exotic spice markets and indie shops, vintage boutiques and arts spaces

On this tour, you’ll be given insight into the social, creative atmosphere and historical background of Kensington Market. You'll see how it caters to its community of artists and alternative crowds, through its vintage clothing stores, coffee shops, sidebars, independent music sense, and street festivals. Most of all, I invite you to sit with me in one of its best coffee shops and share a friendly conversation over a cup of coffee or tea.

An l hour and a half tour, that will encompass the market.
Travelling south on Augusta Ave towards Dundas St West.Then East towards Kensington Ave, east on Baldwin St. Finally heading one more time, north on Augusta Ave returning to our starting piont

I am the founder of Toronto’s Hidden Gems: Tours Off The Beaten Path. Holding over 35 years of customer relations experience, I'm here to provide my personal brand of service with Soul.

Being an immigrant I believe that one of the key components to living a fulfilling life is to venture outside of one's familiar cultural surroundings. Being open to learning, experiencing and appreciating what other cultures have to offer, helped me to recognize the similarities we all share and have in common. I value those areas of the city that have retained both a rich historical and cultural narratives. By creating personalized tours, I want to share the secrets of these part city outside the familiar tourist bubble, by catering tours to those interested in taking a journey off the beaten path.

What an incredible way to spend an afternoon in the historical Kensington Market in Toronto with Vishnu! Vishnu was a real expert and beautifilly tied the history of Neighbourhood with the waves of immigrants and how they built the city. As a long term Toronto local he had exceptional knowledge of the city and the Neighbourhood and a deep understanding of how neighbourhoods build culture and cultures build Neighbourhoods. Walk was fun, rich and exceptional. Once in a life time exprience that you won't find anywhere else. Absolutely recommended!

I have been out for a neighbourhood tour with this guy before and would do it over and over again. He is full of character and enthusiasm, he really brought the places we visited to life and gave us a unique understanding of parts of Toronto past and present. Also got have a delightful shopping spree in quaint, quirky and specialised little shops - I picked up some fabulous finds to take home.

It was so great meeting Vishnu and listening to the stories he narrated not just about the neighborhood but his own personal experiences. Definitely had a great time and have plans to see Vishnu again, soon!
