Summer is great at the quay with market stalls outside and a real buzz of activity with events always going on on the weekends. In winter I only go there to get soup. It's a bit depressing during October to may when it's just the standard stalls and nothing going on outside.

Lonsdale Quay is accessible easiest by the Sea Bus as it takes you right outside. There are lots of small places to eat and inside the actual market is lots of stalls selling vegetables, bags, jewelry, fish, postcards, mobile phone cases... you name it!

The Lonsdale Quay market didn't seem to have as much as I thought it would. I expected a lot more merchants and food stalls. Quite a few of the food places were closed (too early for lunch, I suppose). It looks like the area is undergoing some changes, with a new attraction to show the history of the ship building...

Hi DoubtingNag, It is unfortunate to hear about your experience at the Market. We are sorry to hear that food vendors weren't open to serve you. If you had arrived before 9am, only our breakfast spots would have been open. We apologize if any vendors were temporarily closed, as the Market has been under construction, as we prepare for exciting... More

Come for lunch--lots of great food here. Try Sharky's for an amazing casual meal--incredible value and excellent food. Also, good produce and a great florist. And the sea bus ride from Vancouver is an extra bonus. Enjoy!

I always enjoy going down to the Londsdale Quay Market. Meeting friends for coffee, stopping at the market for fresh produce on the way home, and visiting the booths and shops is a great way to spend time for locals and visitors. Charmaine Hammond PAWS Across Canada tour

This is five minutes from home for us, but very convenient location even if coming from downtown as it is right beside the North Van terminal of the Seabus (15 minutes across the harbor). Lots of little shops for bread, good BC wine, flowers, kitchen supplies, etc... and a branch of Kin's big fruit and veggie outlet. Good casual dining... More

The quay has so much variety of meal or snack choices and interesting craft and souvenirs. The green grocers and fish mongers appeal to locals and visitors. A lovely idea is sunny day sitting by the fountain watching the boats and people. There's a play area on upper level for little children to blow off steam. Unique children's wear stores... More

The Weather while we were visiting wasn't the greatest, so we made a trip to Lonsdale Quay with the whole family. We stayed for an excellent lunch and enjoyed killing a few hours in the market to avoid the rain.

I am meeting a friend for lunch today at the Quay and without a doubt we will have a great visit while we enjoy our lunch bought from Sharky's. They prepare delicious food, particularly the meat dishes. Usually there are five choices, my favourite being the baked ham. Side dishes are mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad and often, perogies.
