The beginning of the 20th century, those early the English colonists, once flush, began moving to a more spacious new residence, But Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe started to move in here. Different from the mainstream store sales, they began to follow their traditional, running their stalls in the front and at the back of their house. From the 1920s to the 1950s, eighty per cent of Jewish in Toronto clustered in Kingston Market.
