Highlights

My team and I have been hosting food tours for 10 years and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the neighbourhood is the worst we've seen. But Kensington Market, like it's immigrant heritage, is full of survivors. Let's support them together! We may not be able to travel internationally, but still we'll travel:

1. Around the world, locally - we'll sample a variety of cuisine from various cultures in the multi-cultural enclave of Kensington Market, including a stop in Chinatown.

2. Through time - we'll trace the history of the market weaved through the stories of the stores we visit.

3. Through perspectives - we've got the insider's edge, from special foods made just for our group, to secret photo spots in the market.

IMPORTANT! Please send a message if you have any questions!

Kensington market is an ethnically diverse neighborhood with small local shops and eateries. Our guide Odelia knew the area well as she used to own a chocolate shop nearby. We tried Jamaican patties, fresh roasted coffees with a spinach pastry made on site, Chinese bao buns, Vietnamese and Tibetan specialties and a fresh Stuffed churro. Go hungry and ask for Odelia as your guide. She gave us lots of history and local info.

Food was spectacular. We expected a food tour. And they delivered in spades. Exceptional food and such a nice variety. We didn’t anticipate the extent of the history that Damian provided for us.. Damian was an amazing guide. His knowledge of the history of the area and the food seemed endless. The personal relationships he has with the owners and staff in Kensington made the tour all that more personal.

It was our first visit to Kensington Market and it was made even more interesting by our friendly and knowledgeable guide, Damian. The food was amazing and very different from what we had eaten before. The culinary adventure was nicely complimented with the interesting stories and history about Kensington Market from Damian.
