Saturday Shopping, James North Hamilton On

James Street North is a street in transition. It is a mix of cultures with Portuguese shops and restaurants, a bit of China town, East Indian Restaurants, and a vibrant artist community that is slowly moving in. It is at the stage where it is still a real neighbourhood, with real people living and shopping, and real artists looking for affordable space to work and market their work. It is also in the North End of Hamilton, known as a tough community. That status is also in transition.
On Saturdays, many vendors put their wares out on the street.
