Richmond Night Markets

Richmond Night Markets

Summers in Vancouver are great; once you experience one you start to understand why everyone here puts up with the endless rainy months. In summer, the sun goes down at 9:30pm and the weather is warm rather than stifling hot like in Aus. And during summer, the suburb of Richmond holds night markets.

Although Sydney has a high Asian population, it’s nothing compared to Vancouver. In areas like Richmond, it feels more like Hong Kong than Canada. And that means food is a big attraction of the night markets.

The Richmond Night Markets are split into two areas: one has a variety of different stalls - although most seemed to be selling iPhone accessories - and the other area focuses solely on food. It’s no surprise which one I spent my time in!

Problem was, what to eat?

Pancakes?

Perhaps some skewers? The queue for this stand was crazy.

While the variety of foods available made it difficult to choose, the endless crowds made it impossible. Often there were so many people crowding around that you couldn’t actually see what each stall was cooking.

Because I’m not a fan of huge crowds, I didn’t hang around for too long. I sampled a few dishes, drank from a coconut shell and then headed home. The food prices were quite dear; I think my pre-dinner snacking here ended up costing around $20.
