Lifestyle in Markham
Markham is bursting at the seams with a myriad of shopping options. If you enjoy quaint old-fashioned main street villages head to Unionville or Markham Village. There you will find antique shops and galleries, clothing stores, gift shops and restaurants. Unionville boasts an excellent collection of well preserved heritage building storefronts, and a picturesque streetscape that attracts tourists from all over Toronto. Markham Village hosts a popular farmers market every Saturday from May through September.
If you prefer shopping centres, the Markville Shopping Centre located at Highway 7 and McCowan Road, is anchored by The Bay, Sears and Wal-Mart, and features over 200 shops and services. The Promenade shopping centre on Bathurst Street, north of Centre Street is anchored by Sears, and Old Navy and includes over 175 shops and restaurants, plus movie theatres. “Big Box” mega retailers, are clustered along the Highway 7 corridor from Woodbine Avenue over to Kennedy Road. For something different check out the Pacific Mall located on the northeast corner of Steeles Avenue and Kennedy Road. This massive 23,000 square foot indoor Chinese shopping mall is known for its many fine restaurants and herbal medicine stores.
