Is this the beginning of the end for Kensington Market?

Imagine my surprise when, as I turned north on Kensington from St. Andrews heading toward European Meats, I spotted a fresh new bakery on the north side of Baldwin St. Not just any bakery--Cobs Bakery. The same Cobbs that's on Bayview Ave. in Leaside, of all places. Yes, that Cobs--with 40 locations in Canada! Just down from Graffiti's Bar and cafe. If there was ever a shop that looks totally out of character with Kensington, it's this one. I don't mind their products, but they have nothing in common with the ethnic diversities in Kensington. If any more places like this open up, there might as well be a McDonald's and a Starbucks, too. Too bad.
