A diverse and thriving artsy historic district on the south side of Edmonton, Alberta. historic buildings filled with trendy shops, pubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops lining a wide miles long street that was made for lots of pedestrian exploring. A cross in style between a frontier prairie town from over a century ago to a modern mid 50's style... More

Whether it's the farmer's market on the weekend, the street car, the variety of eclectic and unique shops or the night life! Fantastic shopping and a varied selection of cafes and pubs, and if you are a people watcher, this is THE place to be.

Lots of cool shops, restaurants and pubs. A must on a warm afternoon to just sit at a patio bar and watch the street life. Good eats.

Perhaps best know for the wide variety of products and produce during the summer season. Also plenty of restaurants and shopping near by on Whyte Ave.

The price of storefront rent has driven away the unique small businesses, and it is now being populated with chain stores that you can find at any mall any place in North America.
