Queen West Market

SPIN Gallery Becomes Queen West Market

The space formerly known as SPIN Gallery will soon be the home of the Queen West Market. Unlike tacky ventures like Blue Banana, the new weekend-only market space upstairs from 69 Vintage and The Social promises to be a well-curated space for local designers, artists and craft-addicts to sell a wide range of art, clothing, design, collectibles and food (but no fudge please).

The grand opening of the space is slated for next Saturday, June 21st and the market will operate on an ongoing basis each weekend and holiday Mondays from 10am to 6pm.

Personally, I can't wait. While I would have been happy seeing another gallery, bar or even a restaurant pony up for a new lease at 1100 Queen West, I've long thought that a regular, ongoing, non-touristy, local designer/artisan marketplace is one thing that Toronto has lacked, and West Queen West is probably one of the best 'hoods for something like this to find a home.
