Travel: Taking On Toronto

Day 3. New adventures await! The day started with a trip to Kensington Market, where I had matcha green tea crepe cake. Although the area was interesting, it was a bit overwhelming for us. The streets were congested and packed, crowds moving very slowly, and hard to navigate. We decided to reroute, and found ourselves in the midst of the Chinatown markets.


Instead, we made our way to the other side of the city to the St. Lawrence Market. There, we were greeted by an endless supply of food. St. Lawrence Market was actually once named the world’s best food market by national Geographic in 2012 and one of the ten best fresh food markets by CNN. It certainly did not disappoint. I would recommend this stop even if you aren’t looking to buy food merely for the experience. Vendors sell a variety of goods from fresh fish, meats, cheeses and sweets.


Our walk continued past the Gooderham Building to the “Times Square” of Toronto, the CF Toronto Eaton Centre. This mall has over 330 restaurants and shops. We then visited Nathan Phillips Square again, which was still playing baseball on their oversized TVs.
