Waterfront Night Market Toronto

Waterfront Night Market brings balls to the Port Lands

Despite the proximity to Ashbridge's Bay, the only stinky thing at the 3rd annual T&T Waterfront Night Market was the tofu — heightened, no doubt, by the glut of stalls grilling all sorts of delicious treats.

One thing of special note this year is the Takoyaki or octopus balls; these tender little mouthfuls seem to have really caught on — at least during my visit. Yum! On the beverage, side there seems to be a strange love for the pineapple that's got the vendors in a frenzy. When did that happen?

The crowds were pretty intense on Friday night, but the lineups moved quickly enough and after the peak between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. you could generally get your food within 15 minutes from any given booth.

There was a small area with some amusement park attractions (giant slide, water gun race) but very few people bothered with this. Most people enjoyed headliners Fade Chromatic, who did their best to compete with the food — the hands down main attraction.

The Festival runs through the weekend; Saturday 1PM to Midnight and Sunday 1-10PM.
