I love Vancouver. I love that we live in a city where a luxury hotel (the Shangri-La Vancouver) and one of the cities top-rated, high-end restaurants (MARKET by Jean-Georges) decide to host an on-site farmers market and no one blinks an eye. Because, hey, why not? Even elite gourmands love a farmers market (right?), especially a fancy-pants one.
I jest; it really is a great idea (if somewhat ironic): MARKET will host the inaugural Shangri-La Farmers Market on its outside terrace, where guests can peruse stalls from nine different local vendors while enjoying complimentary canapés from Shangri-La’s Executive Chef Wayne Harris and complimentary wine tastings from Tinhorn Creek Vineyards.
