  2. Warm Attie and Layers … Lot’s of Layers!!
    Vancouver’s fall/winter can be chilly, so be sure to bundle up. Layering is key, so consider
    wearing thermal tops, cozy sweaters, and a waterproof jacket. While the Market takes
    safety seriously with measures to prevent slipping, it’s always wise to wear suitable
    footwear for extra caution. Lastly, don’t forget a warm scarf, gloves, and a hat to keep
    the cold at bay.

    treasures. Don’t forget your reusable shopping bag – it’s not only practical but also aligns
    with our commitment to sustainability.

    convenience. Grab one from our Info Hut for a small fee of $? during your visit and
    return it when you’re done. Our umbrellas even come with a playful slogan -?-, and you
