Vancouver Christmas Market 2011 - Photos


It is the last few days that the Vancouver Christmas Market is open and this is the first time I've ever visited it in my life. It is so Christmassy and whimsical!

 I love how the reindeer are leaping off the rooftops.

The lineups for food were pretty long. We decided to try the pork knuckle which was quite popular. By the time I got to the front of the line they had already run out of the XXL ones and the popular chicken was also gone.

We also tried a Bratwurst and some noodle like food with sauerkraut. I'm not a big fan of sauerkraut but the pork knuckle on the other hand was SO GOOD! Finger-licking good.

I love carousels.

The inside of Queen Elizabeth Theatre is transformed into a Christmas decoration store. We aren't allowed to take photos inside but all the decorations look amazing. The store is from Rothenburg ob der Tauber which we've been to a couple of years ago. We even went into the Christmas Village there! It was pretty much like this except bigger!

Live entertainment was playing throughout the night.
There were a lot of stalls of decorations for sale:

As well as other beautiful things:

Can you believe these fruits are soap? They are made by the Art of Soap and they smell really good! The seeds and pits are real!

The apple cider smells so good. They actually give you a cinnamon stick with the drink. It is welcome warmth in the cold weather.

The market itself isn't really big, but the atmosphere is enjoyable and food is good and it is a nice way to spend the evening. I really enjoyed my time there.

The last day of the Vancouver Christmas Market is Dec 24, 2011 so only have two more days to enjoy this event! It is open Daily 11am to 9pm and costs $5 for adult entry fee.
