Yeah, Kensington Market's in Toronto. Big thumbs up from any out of towners I've brought there. It's adjacent to Chinatown which is a different kind of fun. I always send people down to Queen Street...start out at University and just walk west. You'll eventually hit the block that suits your lifestyle - mall stores and trendy boutiques come first...walk all the way to Parkdale and you can score street drugs with the crack whores. Plenty of record stores en route. Sunday's a good day to hit Kensington Market, because then you can hit Graffiti's for the matinee (4-7) usually pretty decent roots/country - super unpretentious and friendly.
