There’s still time to check out this great Junction flea market before summer is out

Presented by SMASH and Russet & Empire, the Junction Flea is the perfect excuse to take a trip to the west end ’hood this Sunday. Located in a parking lot at the corner of Dundas and Indian Grove, the well-sized market hawks curated curiosities for the antique aficionado. It operates on the second Sunday of each month for the duration of the summer.
With a well-rounded group of vendors setting up camp, chances are there will be something for everyone. Emporium by I Miss You plans on keeping the focus trained on assorted leather goods, while past vintage stalls have included LAB Consignment and 69 Vintage. Those looking for household tchotchkes and whatnot are bound to discover plenty of Pyrex dishware, typewriters, old records and endless items exuding retro charm. Meanwhile, textiles and pottery from local crafters will also be up for grabs (past participants have included Bookhou).
We suggest getting there via the Toronto Railpath — make sure your bike is fitted with a basket — and before heading home, cool down with some homemade ice cream from Delight (we’re smitten with their Cab Sauv Drunken Cherry variety).
If you can’t make it this time, the last market of the summer takes place Sept. 9.
Junction Flea, every second Sunday of the month until Sept. 9. Located at the parking lot at 2803 Dundas St. W. and Indian Grove
