Bay Street (West)

Since it costs less to sell on the street than it does in the market (street vending is no longer exactly legal, therefore it is free) there are still lots of street vendors. Most of the vendors with wagons or stands are selling drygoods. The vendors with vegetables from their own or neighborhood gardens usually have a dropcloth on the ground.

In front of the market is a small area containing the "Iron Man", a metal statue on a plinth that records the war dead since World War I.

The block to the west of the market has a supermarket and hardware stores.

On the Bay side of Bay Street is the Bus Terminal and the meat and fish markets.
