Enjoyable. Definitely a place to be on warm summer days as winter seemed less busy.

We had been to the forks in the summer and loved it. We went in the winter and it felt like there were less vendors. The food was good and overall it was a relaxing time to just... read more

Neat place to check out if you've never been, but way too much hype. Expensive stores with nick nacks of all sorts but nothing really fantastic. Probably more appealing in the summer since it has lots of outdoor space to walk around in.

Fantastic atmosphere! Seating runs out on busy nights! Prices a little high but still reasonable! It's so nice being able to order a drink in the middle of the market! Love the rest of the Forks too. Great sight for tourism too.

The Forks Market is a great place to eat, there's plenty of different types of food you can get as well as gifts or souvenirs if you are visiting from a distance. There's a pizza shop in there called Zorba's I believe, that's where I ate and I loved it. It's amazing value for money. If you like pizza then... More

This is a little gem and a must stop if you are out this way. There is a skating rink and you can rent skates if you don't have any. This is a smorgasbord of taste experiences from sushi to Mexican to burgers and beer! Be sure to stop in at the fish and chips place- the batter is so... More

This was my third visit to The Forks, and I have enjoyed it every time. What a beautiful spot both winter and summer. They have a skating rink under the pavilion, which brought lots of skaters on the day I visited. The shops have an interesting variety of merchandise and souvenirs, and the parking is free for the first 3... More

This place reminds me of Queen's Quay in Toronto, only not as snooty and with getter food. Kitschy souvenir shops vie with natural, organic offerings, with some skater regalia thrown in. Many food offerings, including samosas and sushi, but my fav was the all day breakfast under $5. Yum. Bought a cool jasper stone necklace for $10 - supposed to... More

I lived 50 years in Winnipeg and watched the Forks grow from a few food stalls to a great market. It is on my 'must do' list each time I return to Winnipeg for a visit. The addition of the Museum of Human Rights tops it off. There are great restaurants in any building, a pleasant walk way along the... More

A spot with lots to offer, and lots to do & see. Skating rink and trail in the winter, many delicious food vendors. Would liken it to Toronto's Distillery District, or a smaller/more-contained Byward Market. Have only visited in the winter, but much to see and do indoors and out.
