From now until the end of August, the new-and-improved plaza outside Canada’s busiest transit hub is an open-air food market. Open daily, the summer-long pop-up will give commuters, office workers and tourists a chance to taste dishes and drinks from some of the city’s best chefs and food vendors. It’s a welcome sight after years of ugly construction and snarled traffic along Front Street, and the strip’s hot dogs now have to share their street meat title with pollo-pibil tacos, jamon serrano pintxos and snow crab–topped fries. Weekly highlights include breakfast service by a select number of vendors, a licensed bar open Wednesday through Saturday, live music during weekday lunches and a farmers’ market every Wednesday. The current crowd favourites might be Holy Chuck’s freshly ground burgers and Uncle Tetsu’s spongy cheesecakes, but here are 16 other snacks to consider.

 Monday–Sunday, 7 a.m.–9 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m.–9 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m.–6:30 p.m., 65 Front St. W.,  frontstreetfoods.com
