An exciting, new foodie paradise seemingly inspired by Lego blocks will be launching in North Vancouver this summer. Hawkers Wharf, a harbour-front, open-air food market is a brand new concept in Vancouver, combining shared kitchen space, demonstration gardens, and alfresco dining.

The market will take over the space at 925 Harbourside Drive near the North Shore Automall and will host 20 to 40 retail and wholesale food businesses that will occupy shipping container boxes. (Hence, the Lego inspiration!)

This new development will be reminiscent of some of the world’s greatest open air markets with a laid-back, West Coast vibe. And there will be food, lots and lots of food!

Further Afield: Lund Shellfish Festival

The Annual Lund Shellfish Festival Sunshine Coast

If you haven’t tasted the bounty of BC’s oysters, same-day harvested and served up raw on a government dock in a quiet harbour away from it all, you haven’t lived.

Forget all you know about oysters, clams, prawns and fish, and plan a weekend getaway to scenic Lund, on the upper Sunshine Coast (Powell River) this May 27-29.

Foodies from as far away as Colorado, Texas, Montreal and even overseas come for this unique opportunity to rub elbows with the locals and dine on some of the freshest seafood you will ever taste, in one of BC’s tiniest and most scenic harbours only a few hours from Vancouver.

New Chef-Led Tours at Granville Island

Granville Island is not only one of Vancouver’s biggest tourist destinations.  It’s also a mecca for hardcore foodies, with hundreds of shops and stalls selling fresh produce and meats, as well as gourmet prepared foods and artisanal cheeses, sausages and much more.  In fact, the Granville Island Public Market is so jam-packed with culinary treasures that it can be a bit intimidating for a first-timer.  I’ve been there dozens of times and still feel like I’ve only scratched the surface.
