Street Food

At the many street festivals that take place here during the summer, food is a big draw. The empanadas from this booth were so good that you had to make sure you were close by when a fresh batch came out or you would be out of luck. They were very good!

Singing In The Market

Another band performing in Kensington Market featured Sarah Hiltz on guitar and singing too. This group was sponsored by Fika which is a Swedish- style coffee cafe in the market.

These panels are the entrance into a jazz club in Kensington Market and there has always been a mural of some kind painted on them. This is a particularly nice one of Miles Davis and the previous mural had been an image of one of Miles's hands. I have no idea who the artist is. Early on Sundays the space serves as a background for a mini gallery of a local artist.

One of the vintage stores in Kensington Market had a bubble-making machine spewing out bubbles onto passersby during the last Pedestrian Sunday. It was magical to stand under the little stream of bubbles and many people were attempting to catch a pic of them as  they fell!

Singing The Blues

Just down the street from yesterday's shot in Kensington Market, this trio was turning out some really good blues. They had a huge crowd gathered to hear them - the big guy seated at the left has a great voice!

Kensington Street Scene

This crowd of people on the roadway is typical of what you find in Kensington Market on one of the monthly Pedestrian Sundays - people strolling and eating. The restaurant on the right, Rasta Pasta, is rumored to have some of the best jerk chicken in the city and part of their menu combines Caribbean and Italian flavours! More from the market tomorrow.

Outdoor Table With A View

Not everyone was lined up for juice in Kensington Market on the last Pedestrian Day. All of the outdoor patios were filling up fast. With not too many of these really warm days left we in the northern hemisphere have to take advantage of them when they come!
I'll show you a few more pics of the market over the days ahead.
