You may be familiar with Richmond’s Night Markets and the Chinatown Night Market but there’s another open-air twilight shopping experience available just across the inlet. The North Shore Night Market will be opening for its third season on Thursday, May 9th 2013 and it is ramping up to be their biggest season yet.
Presented by North Shore Green Markets the North Shore Night Market will be open Thursdays and Fridays starting Thursday, May 9th, 2013 through to Thursday, October 10th, 2013. Explore the market from 5:00pm to 10:00pm each week by browsing over 70 vendor booths selling local art, clothing, jewellery, food, and Canadian products. Play board games, listen to live music and watch dancers perform.
You can find all of these activities, food carts, and vendors at the Shipyards Plaza (138 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver) which is easily accessible, located near the Lonsdale Quay and Seabus terminal.
Organizers say the objective of the markets is to develop a North Vancouver tourist and community evening event, showcasing Canadian made products, unique foods, art, and local entertainment.
Follow North Shore Green Markets on Facebook and Twitter for more information about the upcoming night market and other seasonal events in the Shipyards. North Shore Green Markets also host a farmers market every Wednesday from May to October at the Civic Plaza (141 West 14th St, North Vancouver).
