The Richmond Night Market is back in action and will be open from May 18th, 2012 to October 08, 2012. Unlike other markets, they open at 7pm and close between 11pm and 1am, depending on the day you go. Over one million people make their way through the market each year, checking out the 200 vendors that are all unique in their own way. If you're a foodie, or just love to eat, they have about 80 food vendors where you can find all sorts of culinary treats. This year they are even introducing farm fresh and hand-made goods, much to the delight of Night Market shoppers!
The Richmond Night Market is easily accessible from downtown Vancouver and in a short 18 minutes you will find yourself at the "Bridgeport Skytrain Station" (when taking the Canada Line) and a quick 200 metres walk from the station will bring you to the market. The Canada Line runs late, so you don't have to worry about hurrying while you're there. Should you have a four legged friend you would like to bring, leashed dogs and cats are welcome at the market - just don't bring them on the Canada Line unless you have proper carriers for them.
