When December rolls around, Vancouver isn’t known for what you’d call a “white Christmas.” We just don’t get that much snow, which means we have to get our holiday spirit elsewhere. Luckily, every year we have the Vancouver Christmas Market! Starting November 22, it will be located in its new home of Jack Poole Plaza right in downtown Vancouver’s Canada Place. This is a must-visit not only for holiday cheer, but for food and drink that will haunt your dreams like the ghost of Christmas past for the rest of the year… but in a good way!


Honestly, The Christmas Market can be a bit overwhelming the first time. Filled with dozens of vendors serving delicious hot food and unique gifts, it can be tough to get your bearings – but don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here are some of our must-dos.

Glühwein: The experience of the Vancouver Christmas Market is based on Bavarian villages in the winter, and that means glühwein! If you don’t speak German, you may know it better as mulled wine, i.e. red wine that has been heated through and spiced into a delicious punch! Your FIRST stop at the Christmas market should be to get your reusable mug filled with this delicious beverage!

From there, you need to hit the food court. There are plenty of options, but don’t panic. Take a brief tour to see everything that’s available before pulling the trigger. Food court FOMO is formidable (say that ten times fast) but if you’re smart you’ll pick out the best option for your taste buds. If you want our recommendations you should definitely check out Das Spätzle Haus and Cheese Ma Raclette for the ooiest, gooiest, cheesiest treat you’re ever likely to eat!

From there, you can find dozens of vendors selling great Christmas gifts. If you want a true souvenir of the Christmas Market, buy a one-of-a-kind Christmas stein!

All that, plus rides, photo booths and more! It’s a great experience that we look forward to every year.
