display of shopping items at a market

Metro Vancouver is a great place to shop.  Not only do we have a lot of malls, but the area has tons of craft fairs and markets, especially for the holiday season.  Craft fairs and markets are a great place to find unique and handmade gifts.  You can find everything from jewellery to baked goods to beauty products to tree ornaments to home décor and so much more.  So whether you want to get a jump-start on your holiday shopping or you are just looking to buy some homemade and vintage items for yourself, I’ve made a list of markets happening in November and December.  All of the markets have a low admission cost of under $15 per person and some admission fees will even get you in for numerous days. 

Please note: Some craft fairs and markets may charge for parking and may only accept cash for admission fee, so be sure to check their website for complete details.
