Old World scene on Kensington Avenue, in the heart of Toronto's Jewish section, where every Thursday a market is held, with every variety of fruit and vegetable dear to the hearts of its patrons on sale from shop and wagon. Image of discriminating purchasers making their selection from a cartful of oranges

Kensington Market would be illegal with the current zoning by-laws in both the 416 and 905. Cannot be walkable, must be drive-able. Allowed because of "grandfathering", but still there are city (and provincial) regulations that made Kensington Market not as it used to be.
