Our Story

Our Mission

We believe that gift giving is a way of showing someone how much you love, appreciate and understand them – and the gift you choose must reflect that. The Blue Banana Market Team eats, sleeps and breathes gifts so you have fantastic options and give gifts that your family and friends can’t wait to open. We want to make you a gift-giving hero!

The Making of Blue Banana Market

Vibrant. Avant-garde. Artisanal. Out of the ordinary. The retail location of Blue Banana Market found its perfect home in Toronto’s Kensington Market in 2008. We offer an extensive and eclectic range of gifts that reflect the ethno-cultural history and diversity of our neighbourhood, our commitment to Toronto and Ontario brands and artisans, and our desire to be your place to find one-of-a-kind gifts.
