Arts Market Toronto – Great selection of artisanal gifts

From beautiful jewelry to handmade or vintage home decor, amazing artwork, and candles scented with classic Canadian smells, it’s a gift-givers heaven!

I can almost guarantee that you will not walk out of Arts Market empty-handed when visiting one of their three locations in Toronto. Case in point: the vintage purse I bought when I went in recently to take the photo shown. From beautiful jewelry to handmade or vintage home decor pieces, amazing artwork, and candles scented with classic Canadian smells (like the Algonquin campfire), it’s a gift-givers heaven!

Making it even easier to visit, they have three shops all located in neat neighbourhoods that are worth visiting in their own right. I’ve been to their Danforth location multiple times but only realized the last time I was there that they have a downstairs area full of fun vintage finds… It's definitely a dangerous place for someone who loves to shop secondhand like myself! 

Their west end location is in The Junction, along Dundas Street West, which is a sweet strip full of great restaurants, bars, and shops. Personally, I love the bar Famous Last Words and the store Pretty Clean Shop, which is full of sustainable goodies!  

Riverside is home to their third location, along Queen East, which also has many great spots worth visiting. One of my favourites, especially on a nice day, is the Broadview Hotel’s rooftop restaurant and bar!
