It wouldn’t be a summer in Vancouver without a trip to a night market. We’re lucky to be spoiled with choice in our city with three amazing and diverse night markets to choose from – all a short distance from Downtown. If it’s exotic food you’re looking for, the Richmond Night Market has over 100 booths to tempt your tastebuds. Partial to food trucks and beer gardens?
