After a 700-plus day hiatus, the One Of A Kind Show has triumphantly returned to Toronto much to the delight of anyone with a holiday gift list, shopping habit or interest in the best and brightest artisans the city, and country, has to offer -- namely, everyone. The best food and drink finds are just the thing to help you finish your shopping, prep for holiday get-togethers or simply to gift to yourself so you won't miss out on the most marvellous flavours of the season.
With more than 400 vendors at the show, including 20% who are new this year, there are plenty of sights to see and new flavours to discover. Though samples are forbidden, buy with abandon, knowing that each purchase promises to delight.
Every year, the team behind the OOAK is "inspired by the wonder of creativity," says show director Janice Leung. Perhaps this year more than ever, we're ready to marvel at the artistry, be wowed by the flavours, and surrender to the beauty of shopping together and supporting local every step of the way.
