Kensington Market Ghouls

During a recent visit to Toronto's Kensington Market area we came upon some weird ghouls hanging out in the window of one of the stores. They looked like a combination of skeletons and aliens just looking for someone to probe.
Kensington Market has a tradition of Car Free Sundays on the last Sunday of the month from May to October which is probably a good idea. The combination of narrow and one way streets with trucks making deliveries makes for a tight squeeze.

You can see one of their metal art signs and bike racks in the photo above. Like the name says Kensington Market is full of fruit and vegetable stores as well as some cool restaurants and clothing stores. It is a great destination for walking around and enjoying the flavour of the city. Then you can wander over to Little Italy or Chinatown which are both close by.

Nice! I really like the Ghoul/Alien combo. It hints at Tim Burton yet has a skater edge to it... glad to see they are not too overworked or slick. Love to meet the artist(s)responsible someday and buy him/her/them a nice grilled cheese sandwich and soup at The Grilled Cheese in Kensington Market (on Nassau just west of Augusta).
