Quick! How many commercial centres can you name? OK, that’s not too bad for starters.
Now, of all those Yorkdales and Fairviews, how many are dedicated to something other than mass produced mallwear and preservative-laden calorie bombs? Thought so.
That’s what makes the Danforth’s Carrot Commons so special. It’s an outdoor oasis of specialty shops dedicated to mental and physical wellbeing.
Stroll past 348 Danforth Ave. on a sunny day and you’ll see moms pushing strollers into the Commons’ Big Carrot for a vegan organic lunch on their way down from yoga on the second floor.
Who knew going to the mall could be so good for you?
