Had a nice time going in and out of shops in this area on a beautiful summer day. Unusual number of good bookshops in area even though such neighborhoods typically have lots of bookshops. Good Asian food in area also, especially Vietnamese

Just had a drive through Old Strathcona and was immediately impressed by the buildings, architecture, vegetation, shops and services. Next time in Edmonton, will go back for sure on foot to look more closely. Felt very comfortable there.

There are a number of good restaurants in this area as well as unique stores with a variety of distinct goods on offer. Noticed an interesting book store and several boutiques. I understand that the area becomes more lively later in the evening, but I had early diner with friends at a very good Vietnamese restaurant that had excellent service... More

We were unable to visit the market, but other than that, we were not particularly impressed with Old Strathcona. However, we're not exactly into partying and nightlife, and we visited by day, which may explain our slight disappointment. I preferred the High Level Bridge Streetcar that took us there.

My job that I worked at for 12 years was just a few blocks away from Old Stathcona. Lots to see and do here and many good places to eat. Great place to take out of town visitors as its unique.

Great place, well worth visiting. There are an abundance of fresh produce as well as hand made items. Great for gifts for others and of yourself.
