Vancouver Christmas Market

The famous Vancouver Christmas Market starts in November and features a German-inspired Christmas Market. For those who like a jump on the holiday season, it creates the perfect atmosphere to get into the holiday spirit. Experience a selection of traditional food and beverages, and browse vendors offering authentic wood carvings and toys, knitted goods, nutcrackers, pottery, and other unique gifts. It is one of the only places where you can shop while sipping mulled wine!

Vancouver Christmas Market

If it is your first time at the Vancouver Christmas market then you are in for a treat. It is a fun outdoor European-style market and the perfect way to get ready for Christmas in Vancouver. You can meet with friends and shop local vendors for Christmas souvenirs (maybe even some Vancouver souvenir shopping if you are visiting Vancouver). There is mulled wine served on site which is a great way to warm up on those wet November days in Vancouver.

Despite its German-style, you can find some traditional Canadian Christmas foods at the market!
