Some likes I received on year-old photos on Instagram tagged with Toronto’s Geary Avenue, a west-east street that lies literally on the other side of the tracks from my home on Dupont, alerted me to the Geary Ave. Flea. This flea market event, held at and around the corner of Geary and Westmoreland Avenue, is a monthly event, today’s being the second of four scheduled for the summmer, on the last Sunday of each month.

What did I think of the Geary Ave. Flea? I enjoyed it. There’s a nice mix of local businesspeople and shopkeepers advertising their goods, people trying to sell bricabrac in good shape, and even a mix of food and drink vendors. It’s a nice addition to the neighbourhood. I just wish there were more iterations scheduled for this summer.
