So get your forks ready – it’s time to support local businesses & make some spectacular memories in the process!

Here are 4 night markets to check out in & around Vancouver this spring.

Richmond Night Market

While it’s a little early in the year to talk about this year’s lineup of street food, we couldn’t be more excited for the return of the Richmond Night Market.

So mark your calendars for Friday, April 28th, the official opening date of this year’s annual market series!

Indonesian Night Market – Pacific Arts Market 

If you’ve ever wanted to try a ton of Indonesian eats and drinks all in one place, early May is the perfect chance to do just that. Pacific Arts Market is hosting an Indonesian Night Market – and it’s completely free to attend! From batik fabric to Indonesian plates like chicken sate and beef ball soup (Bakso) – there will be plenty to do and snack on here.

Guess what, Vancouver? The beloved Shipyards Night Market is officially making a comeback this spring after a three-year hiatus, just in time for its 10th anniversary. And you won’t have to spend a dime on admission!
