  Chinatown's Night Market
by rmdw

In the summer, between 6.30pm and 11.00pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays Chinatown closes down 2 blocks to cars and then merchants set up a series of stalls. Available for purchase are DVDs, computer accessories, clothing, toys, and a potpourri of other things. Some great deals can be found. For example, good quality Vancouver and Canada T-shirts can be found for just $5. These same shirts would be 3 to 4 times the price at any regular store.

One of the best features of the Night Market are the food stalls serving a delicious array of items including Bubble Tea, Dim Sum, pan fried dumplings, etc. The most delicious of all were slender Enoki mushrooms wrapped in thin slices of beef. Yum!!!

There was also a stage setup that had a demonstration of martial arts.

Address: Keefer Street, either side of Main
Directions: It's easiest to head north on Main Street. You'll see where the streets are closed down for the market.
Theme: Other
