My husband, son and I live just outside the The Junction, I work in Parkdale and we all adore both. There are so many things to love in these two areas; stores, art, vintage, restaurants, markets, and parks. I want to share favourites from both and some stories from our life….
If you live in one area and love it, you should definitely check out the other, hopefully this blog can help you explore. If you are new to either area… same deal. If you live anywhere in Toronto and haven’t been to The Junction or Parkdale, you should plan your next Saturday in one and Sunday in the other… If you live outside Toronto there are even some gorgeous AirBnbs to stay in while you visit.
One of my hopes for this blog is to interview and photograph some shop/restaurant owners in The Junction and Parkdale so that we can get to know the people behind the local stores. I would also hope to talk to some residents to share their stories and find some hidden gems.
Please feel free to follow along, comment, request, and share stories of your own.
