Exploring the North Van Shipyards Market

A couple of Fridays ago I visited this market for the first time, this market happens every Friday night from May thru September.

This is primarily the largest neighborhood market on the North Shore located just outside of Lonsdale Quay on the grounds in front of the Pinnacle Pier Hotel, this is where you will find a wide assortment of food trucks as well as vendors selling jewelry, clothing, food, drinks and gifts.

There are plenty of products to fill your pantry with, including preserves, churned butters and amazing local honey. Chocolatiers, dessert makers, and bakers offer the most gorgeous and tasty baked goods that with a glance or bite can transport one to simpler time. There are plenty of cosmopolitan choices and combinations of offerings that will astound and please.
