Jewish& In The Market: A Tour Of Kensington’s Layered Stories
Peel back the layers of Kensington’s trendy bars and enter a world of pushcarts and pamphlets, bagels and bushel baskets, delicatessens and clothing outlets, when Kensington was home to a vibrant, bustling Jewish community and Spadina Avenue was its “cosmic spine.” We’ll walk through time, recapturing what novelist Matt Cohen called “an infinity of delectable possibilities, an adolescent theme park throbbing with folk music… protest marches, idealists of all ages…” as Kensington’s Jewish community connected with the broader city and gave way to new waves of immigrants and new countercultures.
