In each hut discover terrific food and drink and a wonderful array of Christmas gifts.

A return to tradition with the Vancouver Christmas MarketDuring the pre-Christmas season, the Market is the perfect destination for combining an outing with friends and family with some Christmas shopping. Business people will find it a fun meeting place for a quick bite during lunch time or a drink after work (be sure to use our 2 for 1 Lunch Pass!). With a wide variety of cultural activities and entertainment events, it also becomes a place for people to enjoy and mingle before a night on the town. A special children’s area known as the Kids' Market will give youngsters the chance to make their own Christmas gifts and ride downtown Vancouver's only Christmas Carousel. School groups of all ages, social clubs and senior organizations will make a visit to the Market an annual tradition.
