Illumination Summer Night Market is located close to IKEA in Richmond. The different night markets at this location over the years keeps changing to compete with the other night markets in the Lower Mainland. There is a $3 entry fee with complimentary parking and family fun entertainment. But lets be real, everyone goes to the night market for Korean socks and all the different types of food. It runs until September 10th.
There are a handful of stalls selling jewelry, electronics, clothing, and other things here.
There’s a lot of cute areas to take photos with yourself, friends or family.
The area also has a bunch of lights surrounding the night market this the name – Illumination Summer Night Market.
Below are a few different food item you can check out the the Illumination Night Market. There are over 60 food stalls, so tons of food options. We only made it to 30 stalls.
Ice Cream Taiyaki
Deep Fried Squid and Deep Fried Chicken Nuggest
More Skewers and Quail
Shaved Ice with fruit
Chinese Escargot Rice Noodle
Korean Bi Bim Bap in Cones
Fresh Watermelon Juice
There are lots of options here and there are less crowds compared to the other night markets. It’s a good location for those who have been to all the other night markets to find the tried and true types of night market eats. The food stalls here are a hit and miss, but I didn’t find any food item outstanding or very innovative. It’s good for families and there’s lots of opportunities to take photos.
