Kensington Market 1983

In the Kensington Market
Stores in the Kensington Market.

I walked down to Kensington Market, bought me a fish to fry.
I went to the Silver Dollar, looked a stranger in the eye.
A friend of mine says he that don't think this town's so wild a sight.
But he's got shades around his soul and he thinks he seen the light.

From "Down by the Henry Moore", by Murray McLauchlan. (Next verse)

The Kensington Market has been an important part of the heart and soul of Toronto for years. Here is where a number of immigrant cultures spill out onto the the narrow streets. These are major thoroughfares, but not for motor vehicles. The best way to explore the nighborhood is on foot.
