Richmond Night Market is one of the hottest places in Vancouver this Summer for locals and tourist to experience. The market has been open since 2000 and is one of the largest night markets in North America. We are very lucky to be able to experience the plethora of food stalls that attracts over 1 million visitors each Summer.

This year they are open May 11th, 2018 till October 8th, 2018.

The line ups to get inside will be long, so if you plan on coming often over the Summer, definitely try getting their zoom pass to get in faster.

This year, we were invited by Tourism Richmond and ChineseBites to eat our way through 32 food and drink stalls. We didn’t have to visit them all but we couldn’t be stopped.

Final Thoughts

We made our way through 32 food and drink stalls. Some were hits, some were misses, and some were just plain gimmicks. There are still a lot more booths that we didn’t cover, but we were able to make a small dent into what is available. Hopefully this gives you an idea of the food and drinks available at the Richmond Night Market. By the end of the night, we were stuffed to the brim.

    We’re very disappointed with the market this year. Some empty stalls, admission fees gone up considerably, and overpriced food. They’re taking advantage of the monopoly when they should have lowered their prices. Instead they raised them and offering less.
