Chinatown Night Market

In the summer, between 6:30pm and 11:00pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays Vancouver's Chinatown shuts down 2 blocks to cars. Merchants then set up a series of stalls. Available for purchase are DVDs, computer accessories, clothing, toys, and a potpourri of other things. Some great deals can be found. For example, I saw good quality 'Vancouver' and 'Canada' T-shirts for just $5.00. These same shirts would be 3 to 4 times the price at any regular store.

But the best feature of the Night Market are the food stalls serving a delicious array of items including Bubble Tea, Dim Sum, pan fried dumplings, etc. The most delicious of all were slender Enoki mushrooms wrapped in thin slices of beef. Yum!!!
