So after going back and forth we decided to stay in the city over the weekend. It ended up being a gorgeous day on Sunday and we took full advantage of it.
We started the morning at the first ever Junction Flea Market!
There were a ton of great vendors. lots of vintage goodies and handmade leather goods, silkscreen items and awesomeness.
oh and hey look: There was a fortune teller inside this trailer!!
we wandered around a little in the neighborhood and window shopped.
and after we had sandwiches ordered at the deli and walked to high park to eat them! yum yum.
Have you seen this can above? Somersby? its AMAZING!! the LCBO just started carrying it and its an apple cider beer that is so so so so so tasty. The drink of summer 2012 for sure.
Oh and also from our neighborhood we stopped and bought wheat and gluten free donuts from Bunners which went incredibly well with the ontario strawberries organic ice cream from Delight.
I'm a bit of an ice cream snob (having grown up in the home of Kawartha Dairy and all) but this ice cream is sooooooo delicious and taste so fresh. Highly recommend.
I just love my neighborhood. its perfect! so many great shops and cute stores and the people are SO friendly. There are always new things going on, they recently started a farmers market on saturday mornings just a short walk from my apartment and this flea market will be a monthly occurring event in the summer.
I wish I could afford to buy instead of rent but I wouldn't want to move out of this neighborhood, even if it means waiting a few more years to save up.
If your looking for a great place to spend a day in Toronto, I highly recommend the junction.
