The Night Market

The Night Market has started couple weeks ago on May 15th and I haven't checked it out this year yet. It is a nice shopping experience of the Asian culture with a lot of stuff such as traditional crafts, fashion, snacks and drinks (the popular stuff is Bubble Tea), toys/gifts, and electronics. It starts at around 7pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays; great for a nice evening out after dinner if you have nothing to do. Admission is free. I would usually go at least once a year if there's something I want to buy. You may do some bargaining at the booth and you just might get a deal.

There are 2 locations:

Vancouver Chinatown Night Market
Dates: May 15 to Sep. 6, 2009. Every Fri., Sat. & Sun.
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Venue: Keefer St. / Main St.
(Between Main & Columbia St.)

Richmond Night Market
Dates: end of May, to end of September
Time: 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday, and to 11 p.m. on Sunday
Venue: 12631 Vulcan Way, Richmond (behind Home Depot)

The Richmond venue is the bigger one and is always packed, especially at the food stands. I think that's what most people go to the Night Market for.... it's the various yummy food!
