What You Can Expect

Toronto Food Tour: Kensington Market Sweet and Savory

Chinese Bakery

Begin this Toronto food tour at a Chinatown bakery for a taste test of Chinese spring rolls, then venture into Kensington Market, a distinctively multicultural neighborhood in downtown Toronto. This area is one of the city’s oldest and most well-known regions and has been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada.

Kensington Market evolved from a working-class Jewish market into a working-class bohemian market. With so many different immigrants settling here over the past century, there is now an ample variety of colors, sounds and flavors from all over the world. Witness the vintage shops, cafes, bakeries and bars, plus the plethora of bare brick walls that have been covered with stunning graffiti murals and street art.

Visit several shops, bakeries and vendors on this unique tour and indulge in sweet and savory tastes from around the world. You'll even get to try a truly 'Canadian' dish that has been given a special twist for the tour.

Between stops, learn about the history and culture of food in Toronto and find out the little-known secrets behind the food we eat every day. The series of tastings equals a hearty lunch.

This is an awesome tour if you like sweets! It also is great for helping you to find amazing stores like Toronto Popcorn Company that you may not have discovered on your own. Well worth it!


4 star rating: Recommended September 2013

Our tour was led by a really lovely young girl called Phoebe. I liked her sense of humour. She wasn't to intense as a tour guide like a wannabe actor like some guides tend to be, she was chilled out.
GO HUNGRY!!!! You get a nice little amount of snacks on your way around. Although would have been nice to have a sample of something for us to take home.
As a part of toronto I really liked Kensigton Market. It's kinda like Camden, in London. Quirky stores, organic cheap food markets, multi cultural cafés etc. ithey don't allow any corporate shops there so everything's unique and family run. It's got graffiti everywhere and is quite run down but it's all part of the charm
I don't want to go through too many details as I liked not knowing what we were going to try next.
But the only thing I will say is that I would have liked to hear a bit more about the neighbourhood/Toronto than the history of chocolate.
It's a nice way to spend a chilled out afternoon.
Oh and also if you want to buy anything from the Bakery at the beginning buy it before as you end somewhere different.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2016

Tour was fine although my taste buds were all over the place afterwards. The poutine fries were way too heavy and stifled the tasting that came afterwards. I would suggest replacing this with something a little more stimulating to the taste buds rather than stodge and leaving the sweet tasting until all the savoury tasting is finished we had the popcorn tasting in between savoury tasting.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2014

Interesting enough, but a tour isn't necessary. You can do the Kensington markers on your own.
