For 40 years, an enclave of art, culture and cuisine, Mirvish Village offers an out-of-the ordinary shopping and dining experience. Featured are specialty bookstores, vintage shops, art galleries, contemporary fashion and many restaurants with patios on a quiet tree-lined street.
This BIA was named in recognition of Toronto’s retail show biz entrepreneur Honest Ed Mirvish and is conveniently located on the subway line nestled between the Annex BIA & Korea Town BIA. Mirvish Village is anchored by Honest Ed’s, the landmark discount department store whose walls are lined with 40 years of Toronto’s theatrical history.
In conjunction with Kensington Market and Baldwin Village, the MVBIA hosts Pedestrian Sunday events (car-free) throughout the summer along Markham Street featuring food, including an organic farmers’ market, live music and performance.
