Another Christmas tradition in our house is to head on down to the Vancouver Christmas Market. There are so many reasons that we like to head to the market; from amazing food to awesome vendors, and of course the spectacular carousel rides.
NOV. 21 TO DEC. 24, 2018
A beloved holiday tradition for locals and visitors alike, the Vancouver Christmas Market features
more than 80 huts of authentic German sweets, treats, and treasures.
Experience the signature yuletide celebration at its expansive seaside site at
Jack Poole Plaza ~ home of the Olympic Cauldron.
There are so many vendors at the Christmas Market that I could not possibly list them all here. I can certainly tell you about our absolute favorites though…
Schweinshaxe is a large pork shank, roasted on a special rotisserie until it’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Popular during Octoberfest, these Bavarian-style pork hocks are perfect anytime you want something traditionally German and wonderfully delicious!
Eve Adnan and Donna Evren, the owners of YUMMY FOODIES, brought this traditional dish to Canada when they immigrated in 2010, and have been very successful ever since.
Mr. Pretzels® is a pioneering brand of aromatic soft pretzels baked in a broad variety of flavours.
Originating in Puerto Rico in 1994, their delicious hand-rolled soft pretzels are sold in over 300 stores in close to 20 countries in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, the Caribbean and North America. Using only the finest quality natural ingredients, their pretzel dough is prepared on the spot, hand rolled in front of their guests for optimal freshness and taste.
Made with whole wheat, low in fat, and containing no preservatives, their tempting pretzels are the perfect combination of nourishment and flavour. Given the expansion and their success of our brand worldwide, they have proven that high quality and delicious taste transcend all borders.
Imagine flowing milk and dark chocolate cascading down a fountain five tiers high, then poured over fresh cut fruit of your choice, placed in a glass, and topped with fresh whip cream or powdered sugar.
Select one of 3 sizes or take it one step further and order your chocolate and fruit in a sugar cone for a taste unlike anything you’ve ever known. These unique combinations satisfy even the most finicky of chocolate lovers and are guaranteed to be a hit with children.
Enjoy delicious German-style Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes) and Hurricane Potatoes at Das Kartoffelhaus. Choose from a variety of mouth-watering toppings to flavour your crispy, crunchy, spiralled potato treat! They are great for snacking on as you wander the market or sharing with a friend.
JJ’s Hot Cobs has branched out from their summer-time specialty of fresh roasted corn to bring you JJ’s Roasted Chestnuts. For the last four years, they have been roasting the best European chestnuts to perfection, to the delight of customers around the Lower Mainland. With their tantalizing aroma and cozy warmth, roasted chestnuts are the perfect snack on a cold winter’s evening. Munching on these nutty, buttery gems will add make you feel as if you stepped into the pages of a classic holiday story.
As far as the Shops go, you have to just take your time and wander around them all. There are so many amazing and spectacular items to see. You might just get a few people checked off your Christmas shopping list. 🙂
The setting of the Vancouver Christmas Market is perfect. With it down at Jack Poole Plaza, by the Olympic Cauldron and the water, simply adds to the market.
