6 Toronto Pop-Ups We’re Loving This Summer

The greatest thing about summer is, of course, the warm weather. This warm weather gives life to one of the other great things about summer – the influx of pop-ups you’ll find around the city.

Here are 6 pop-ups we’ve had on our radar this summer, that you should schedule into your to-do list before the winter freeze returns.


Front St. Foods
The downtown lunch scene has improved drastically for all the Financial District YPs this summer, as the Front Street Foods pop-up provides Union Station and Front Street with a wide variety of the best street food vendors Toronto has to offer, every single day until September 27th.

Really Really Free Market
Take advantage of this great event while you can this weekend. August 1st means it’s time for the return of this completely free, donation based market where you can unload your own no longer wanted goods (or services you are happy to offer up for free) in exchange for others good and services. It’s essentially a clothing swap but with much more than just clothing – and you don’t even have to bring anything to take something home. These much needed events are what keep our landfills from overflowing.

800 Sq Ft
We’ve already told you all the reasons why you shouldn’t miss out on this unique small apartment decor shop – so what are you waiting for? Register to attend one of their monthly in-apartment shopping parties.

Eastside Pop-Up Market
For all the East-enders out there, this monthly free market features a new theme and location every month. August is focused on fashion, September is dubbed “Autumn Breeze,” and October celebrates Mom-preneur vendors.

Toronto Art Crawl
Having already established a reputation as being one of the best art pop-ups in the city, you can understand why we are so excited for this one. This Entertainment District art crawl returns for its 3rd year at David Pecaut Square on August 14th.

I Love Ugly
This New Zealand based pop-up is currently on a cross-Canada tour, making its stop in Toronto from August 27th until September 7th at 76 Scollard Street. This is your chance to get your hands on the duds everyone in LA is currently obsessed with.
