Winter night market coming to Kensington

Are you looking for yet another opportunity to fill up on tasty snacks and shop for local crafts and handmade goods this holiday season? If neither Dundas Square nor Union Station nor any other spot on this list quite meets the exact standards of holiday cheer you're after, maybe a little evening shopping in Kensington will scratch that itch.

The Kensington Night Market will see local retailers extending their hours until 10pm for three consecutive Thursdays - December 4, 11, and 18. Several area shops are getting on board, including Kid Icarus, Sub Rosa Vintage, Anice, Don't Call Me Cupcake, The Skin Care Queens and 214 Augusta with a few stores hinting at deals and surprise discounts.

It's a welcome change to Kensington which usually feels somewhat abandoned once night falls. Here's hoping local shops get hooked on the idea of staying open late and it can become more of a regular thing in 2015.
