This is a clean, bright local market, with really good restaurants - no chains here. There's a European-style grocery store with excellent selections of fresh produce and meats, some really good restaurants, a decent bakery that also features excellent Mexican dishes, a wonderful florist, great...More

I’m not sure I’d go out of my way to visit this market as there’s not much here. But what is really worth coming to see are the beautiful spring planters along the Fraser River walkway. It is especially pretty when the planters are bursting...More

This market is located along the boardwalk, it's worth a visit for a nice light snack or lunch. It also has a pub plus an Asian restaurant, which we may try sometime in the future.

Like coming here, however the market is starting to show it's age! No real updates or changes and the crowds are restricted to the locals. Did not see may tourists, however they are building new highrises in the area & vehicle parking is limited!

The River Market is more fun in the summer when you can hear the laughter of children as they play in the land-locked tugboat, and people are out walking their dogs.

Tourists to the Lower Mainland of BC should NOT consider the River Market, on it's own, as a destination. However, when combined with the Pier Park and Skytrain Ride to New Westminster, the River Market becomes a quaint spot to re-energize before returning to Vancouver,...More

Doesn't compare to lonsdale quay at all. Not much in the way of arts, crafts, stores. The walk along the river is beautiful but I wouldn't go back to the "market". Maybe we missed the main part? Ha ha.

Back again and very little has changed since our last visit to this shopping location. Did not see anything worth while bargains for shopping & very few shoppers were walking the area!
