Kensington Market is a former open air market in downtown Toronto near the University of Toronto. Now it’s filled with cafes, restaurants, used clothing stores and other businesses that cater to a somewhat bohemian demographic. Once a month the area closes to automobile traffic and hosts an open air street festival. Today we attended for the first time and saw bands performing live on the street, along with troupes of dancers and martial artists demonstrating their craft. We even saw a car filled with dirt and planted with flowers as a community art project. The kids watched all of this with some amusement, but it was the smell of hot and freshly fried donut batter that really got them involved and interested. We followed our noses to a local bakery were we found that the source of the delicious smell was not donuts at all but Mexican treats called “churros”. The churros were delicious.
