Looks intriguing... starting Aug 18 at the Italian Cultural Centre on Slocan.

    1. I know I am going to sound like a bummer but if it is anything like Italian day, it will just be 75 different versions of pizza and people selling cheap stuff like scarves and phone cases.

      My hope is that they can come up with something better!

        " .... 75 different versions of pizza and people selling cheap stuff like scarves and phone cases."

        Change "pizza" to "Asian foods" and you got Richmond Chinese Night Market ;-)

      2. Today was the first day of the "night" market. Perhaps during the fall iterations, it will be more dusk since the hours are 3-7pm.

        I could only see one spot selling hot food and gelato--the Italian Cultural Centre itself. Otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised to see the produce and veggies, olive oil / salt / spice vendors, a Ukrainian bakery with piroshki, a vendor with interesting hummus and tapenades, and other vendors I've seen at other markets (e.g. A Bread Affair).

        The accordion was a nice touch as well.

        Not a phone case in sight ; )

          And if there were phone cases, they'd only be Fendi, Prada, Gucci and Versace, right ? :-)
