Kensington Market, Toronto

In recent years Kensington Market has been associated with the Rastafari Movement. There are several stores situated around the Market that sell Rastafarian cultural items, including a small flea-market. The area has also been popular amongst marijuana activists and members of the drug subculture.

The market is also home to one of Canada’s few cannabis caf├ęs and boutiques, as well as a couple of head shops. The Hot Box Cafe and Roach’o’Rama are businesses in Kensington Market where the consumption of cannabis takes place openly.
