Mirvish Village, home to the landmark discount store Honest Ed’s at Bathurst & Bloor, is a collection of boutiques, studios and restaurants founded and named for the Mirvish family in recognition of Toronto’s retail show biz entrepreneur Ed Mirvish.
This historical area is located in midtown Toronto, (Bathurst subway station) in an eclectic, culturally diverse, and vibrant neighbourhood. Filled with many spectacular specialty shops including video & bookstores, jewelry stores, antique stores, art galleries, vintage shops, and outstanding eateries to satisfy many different palates, visitors can stroll the spacious boulevard and open street, or relax & enjoy some food & drink on one of the many patios that Markham St. hosts.
The Mirvish Village BIA welcomes visitors to join the community in enjoying activities, entertainment & live music for all ages at Mirvish Village’s first annual Pedestrian Sundays.
