Richmond boasts two of North America’s largest Chinese night markets and this includes the Richmond Night Market.
Conveniently located just footsteps away from SkyTrain Canada Line’s Bridgeport Station and River Rock Casino, the largest casino in the province, the night market has become an annual tradition and one of the flagship spring/summertime events of the region.
The Richmond Night Market 2014 opens on Friday, May 16 and closes on Monday, October 13.
The market features 250 merchandise booths, 80 food vendors serving Asian street food and desserts (with a different specially featured and priced vendor each night), diverse family-friendly entertainment and more than 1,000 on-site parking stalls.
The market provides Metro Vancouverites with a North American take on the massive street markets found in Asian cities like Hong Kong and Taipei.
