The area

Address
Neighborhood: Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.

Kitsilano Market Meats on West 4th. Expensive Top Sirloin Steaks so tough we could not eat them. Priced as "Prime" @ $19.95/lb. Prime is the top 5% of all beef for marbling, one expects the steaks to be well aged eg 21-35 days, tenderness. In our experience I would say these steaks had less than 14 days age and did not seem to be Prime in terms of marbling. The store manager did not offer to refund our money. A pork chop was also tough. On a scale of 10, in terms of product quality and service I would give them a 0. We complained to the BBB and the owner, Zul, never followed up as promised. The BBB have encouraged us to complain in view of their experience with the owner.

The Vancouver Flea Market on Terminal is a great place to find almost anything! They have a section for just antiques and collectables but for the best bargains you have to check out the other vendors as well - some are very reasonably priced for nice vintage items but you really have to look. I found a fabulous mid-century modern lamp for less than $20! You can park behind the flea market on the road and it is free and almost always a spot. I have parked there many times and I felt very safe. It costs a dollar to get in but if you want to buy something most of the vendors will bargain with you and it is likely that you will get a dollar off if you play your cards right! Loads of fun!

We simply do not see the allure of this place. A filthy marketplace, with tourists in mind to sell souveniors to.

I loved the flea market, it was small but had varieties. Had several candle shops, fragrance related cosmetics shops, clothes, handbags,
paintings, crockeries, unique items, etc. It was nice experience.

If you like thrift store shopping, you'll like the flea market. If you enjoy meeting people from other cultures and hearing a variety of languages as you walk down the aisles, you'll like the flea market. If you don't like the above, I suggest you stick to commercial shopping malls.

Worth visiting frequently because stock & vendors change weekly. A wide range of vendors: some come for the day and set up a table with "garage sale"-type household items. Many are permanent vendors selling anything from used tools to vintage Barbie to antique furniture. Tons of cheap vinyl records, DVDs, video games. Most vendors will haggle if you are respectful.

Parking for $1.25/hour, but plenty of free parking on the side streets. Admission $1.25, & you can get a hand stamp so you can leave & come back. Cafeteria on site with a burgers & fries menu; other fast food places on the same street. Open at 9 am, but many regular vendors don't show up until 10 or 11. Check Vancouver Craigslist before you go, to narrow your search - several vendors advertise regularly there.

I've noticed the flea market here for about 25 or 30 years but never had the inspiration to attend. Finally after been coaxed by friends the gang of us spent a Sunday afternoon rummaging through the various tables. It's common knowledge that a lot "knock-offs" of high end merchandise is often offered for sale at the market. The building is huge, I would say possibly 50,000 square feet with a mass of treasures and junk being offered for sale. I've noticed that most persons dicker with the vendors. You can find the flea market by a 10 minute walk from Main Street (walking east). Personally I would not park my car here.

Found vendors willing to haggle over prices and helpful. Good variety of goods being sold. Stalls open and nobody around to ask prices on items, I found strange. Both buyers and sellers very friendly . Showed up just minutes after opening and most vendors were just strolling in as we were ready to leave, two hours later. Scooped some good deals.

It was an interesting experience for a few hours. Do not have any expectations of this place before going. We had to pay $2.50 for 2 hours parking and $1.50 per person admission. We were hoping to find antiques and other vintage items. We looked around but the prices were not great. There were booths that were covered up. We did find a vintage wash board which had a glass board rather than the typical tin type washboard. It also had faded lettering with the washboard brand made in Vancouver Canada. We asked the vendor how much it cost? He indicated $40, but then agreed to $20 to make a sale for the day. When I pulled out my money to pay, he said $30. We both clearly heard $20. We were not going to follow through with this deal and so we started to walk away. He then said $25. I do not like to do business with disreputable people, but since I really wanted the vintage glass washboard we paid the $25 and quickly walked away and left the market in disgust. So Caveat emptor - “let the buyer beware!”
