It’s that time of year again, construction has taken over and the summer sun is bringing on the heat that is too hot to handle in the city of Toronto. This Canada Day weekend, Union Station opened its highly anticipated Summer Market! After a year hiatus, the beloved Union Summer is back, and better than ever. Celebrating some of the best Toronto has to offer there are a total of 10 different vendors that you will not want to miss.
