    This is the best farmers market, the fruit and vegetables are very inexpensive and fresh. There is nothing better then strolling down main street on a Saturday, meeting locals and enjoying great food and warm weather.
    Thank you to the vendors for all of your hard work

    What a gem! We came for lunch (which was excellent!) and stayed to browse through the store full of home made goodies; artisan created crafts and so much more. Highly recommended for the entire family!

    After not being inside this mall for some time, I had forgotten just how ginormous it is: 200 stores and 27.5 acres of building, and who knows how many parking spots. Seems just about every yuppie-type chain store is represented, with a great selection of services, clothes, and other merchandise. While I thought the prices in the stores I sampled were a bit high, the large number of shoppers carrying bags indicate I was in the minority. All on one level with wide aisles and a large loop; so if you don't want to shop, then you can walk a few laps, people watch, and enjoy the art. Lots of parking.

    The hustle and bustle of the Sidney Street Market is the highlight of the summer for locals and visitors alike. Great entertainment, great food and lots of things to buy.

    Been over a year since I've been here. I'm not a great fan of shopping centres, and this one is so big it sometimes reminds me of a factory. BUT, perhaps management has made some changes and made this place a bit more people friendly.
    The positives remain the same: centrally located with lots of parking and proximity to public transport. Size = enormous selection of goods and services. However, I thought I noticed a difference in tenant mix that now caters more to the typical citizen, and not only to women's fashions (although there still a heck of a lot of that!).
    The overall cleanliness of common areas and washrooms continues to be of high quality. So, great place to spend a rainy afternoon, or for a one-stop shop.

    COVID Safe, however the foot traffic & visitors have been very limited, which affects the businesses. Still recommend going to enjoy the shops and the view of the inner harbour.

    Granville Island is one of the best spots for shopping, food, people watching in Vancouver. Yes it’s touristy but the creativity, the vibrancy, the diversity of food and flavours just can’t be beat. Whatever you’re looking to do; couples, families, solo, this place has it all (look at my pictures!)

    The whole experience here was not only beautifully set out, but magnificently insightful. It was truly a look through the historical looking glass and provided my family and I with so much to see and do. I would definitely to recommend to people of all ages, with access being very easy both in and out.

    Our family went to the second floor of the Aberdeen Center Food Court recently. There were so many different types of food that we can choose from, mostly different kinds of Asian styles - Shanghai, Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese, to name just a few. The food court is always packed with people, but you can always find tables to sit with a good view as well.

    It was on my to do list as a recon specialist for my friends and finding good spots for them to visit when they are in Nelson. It's a pretty cool museum and art gallery to visit and kill about an hour of your time in Nelson. I learned a little bit more about my area of the Kootenays and I would highly recommend this place to friends.

    An outlet mall with high end shops. Kate Spade, Jimmy Choo. Mostly fashion shops. A couple of kitchen shops. Lots of deep discounts but the original prices are very high so you still have to pay big bucks.

    A nice place to stroll around and the merchants seem to be friendly. Avoid the Japanese Kitchen. High prices, poor food, surly waitress.

    Washrooms are inconveniently located, up a huge flight of stairs. Not elderly friendly or for those who don't do stairs.

    Big parking lot with lots of spaces. Minutes away from the airport.

    As we unwind from Covid, it is interesting to see how different business owners react to the post Covid era. Here we find a good example of how to do things properly. The parking lot is about half full on a Monday morning - a good sign people feel safe here.
    Doors well signed re "In" and "Out". Hand sanitizers available in various spots. Lots of spacing in the Food Court. "Walk on the right" well signed, and well respected by the customers (well, most of them).
    Easy access whether driving or using public transit. I enjoyed my brief shopping trip, and suspect you will too.

    We were visiting from Delaware USA. We wanted to purchase enough goodies for our stay at our Airbnb at Copper River. Everyone was so friendly (staff and customers)!
