Richmond Night Market – A Little Bit of Asia Close to Home

Are you looking for something to do on a weekend evening, like say on a Friday or Saturday or even a Sunday evening and a night at the movies just doesn’t cut it?  Why not check out the Richmond Night Market, which in some small way is “a little bit of Asia brought close to home.”  Don’t forget to book with us directly as we will always have the best rates available.

The Richmond Night Market is the largest of its kind in North America.  Nearly one million visitors have attended the market since it’s humble beginnings in 2012.

Each year on those long summer nights from 7pm till midnight on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and even statutory holidays from May till October, the Richmond Night Market is a “can’t miss” event for not only locals but visitors from every corner of North American and abroad.  Are you looking to going on a Friday night?  Why not check out “Fry-Yay”?  It is essentially what would happen if a plate of fries and an ice cream sundae had a baby. A sweet take on a savoury favourite, this vendor allows diners to choose from toppings such as chocolate sundae, Nutella rocky road, and matcha to create a flavourful, highly shareable treat.

Once you’re satisfied with the number of buttons you’ve had to undo to accommodate your Night Market eats, browse through over 200 retail vendors selling everything from adorable novelty socks to used records and pet accessories. You can also try your hand at some new activities this year, such as a paddle boat adventure through a large pool complete with inflatable crustaceans.

Did we mention that there are over 100 food vendors and over 200 “trinket” stalls to choose from.  So if you’re a foodie or someone that enjoys the “small things”, this is definitely for you.

Getting to the Richmond Night Market from the Sunset Inn and Suites is very simple as well, feel free to ask our knowledgeable and friendly Front Desk staff on how to get there.  Don’t forget to contact the hotel directly for the best rates.  We look forward to having you stay with us.

By the way, did you know that if it’s your birthday and you attend the night market, you will receive free admission and a t-shirt.  How’s that for incentive for all of you summer babies.

Have a great summer everyone and we hope to see you there!
