This is a unique area that may often be overlooked when considering the traditional commercial and business districts of the North End. However in the 1950’s and 60’s Dufferin Avenue and areas surrounding it was a shopping destination.
This has changed somewhat in the later years and is now home to small manufacturing operations, warehouses and business services along Dufferin and adjoining avenues such as Jarvis.
One of the most recent developments has seen the launch of a specialty cheese production facility, the earlier establishment of a much sought after coffee roaster and the original Neechi Foods Co-Op as well as many other distinct offerings.
The Dufferin Avenue and environs can be a value based district, ideal for establishing a business operation that may not require as much street traffic or can act as a destination operation.
