Cabbagetown earned its unique name from the neighborhood’s poor history, wherein impoverished factory workers ate old cabbage to sustain themselves and their families. Of course, the neighborhood has since become a hip, up-and-coming area filled with unique restaurants, private grocers, hip bars, avant-garde art galleries, and trendy loft spaces. The roads are slim and lined by historic row houses and renovated industrial buildings. Cabbagetown’s community could easily be called “alternative,” sporting hipster clothing and tattoos. It is the perfect area for artsy college students and post-graduates.
