What Our Visitors Are Saying
The Bazaar is a fantastic local destination to spend the day exploring with friends, family, or even solo!
The Gerrard India Bazaar is an exciting neighbourhood with so much going on. The annual Festival of South Asia is a great summer celebration for all, and I encourage everyone to make it out.
Amazing place for great Indian food, shopping and feel the vibrance of India right here in Toronto. We get all Indian clothing and accessories at Gerrard street at great prices. So, no need to travel all the way to India for shopping.
When the weather starts to heat up I always long for the bazaar. I've been coming since I was a young teen.
This is my favorite spot to stock up on fresh spices whenever I am in Toronto. Please support local... Business owners here will never let you down, best curry in town 🥰
