This is the 8th year for the Vancouver Christmas Market, happening from November 22 till December 24 at the Jack Poole Plaza.

This year, the Christmas Market is much more spacious with 75 vendors ranging from sweet smelling soaps, to local wines and of course – the multitude of food options!

There are some great places to take photos around the market, including their stacked Gluhwein and performers area, a Walk-In Christmas tree (a 30ft tree with over 36,000 lights) and of course the Olympic Cauldron and carousel.

Market favourites like bratwurst, gulasch, spätzle, schnitzel carts are back. There are new vendors including Eat F.I.S.H., Cannoli King and even a hut that serves freshly made Paella.

This year, the Market has teamed up with the Children’s Wish Foundation and from December 16-24, Children’s Wish will be collecting donations and selling ‘wish wands’.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $5 youth, and children 0-6 go free. If you purchase online, you’ll receive a complimentary season pass.
