A beautiful place to visit full of restaurants and entertainment during the summer months. There is always a little bit of something for all age groups. There is the seabus which travels frequently to take you across, so its easily accessible by public transit.

Highly recommend this place on a nice day. You can take the seabus from downtown Vancouver to reach the quay. The ride on the seabus is enjoyable and will give you a great view. Do note during rush hour the seabus from downtown Vancouver to North Vancouver is two zone so it will cost you a bit more. At the... More

With its diverse fare and vaiety of shops the quay is a pleasure to visit, especially on a nice day. The small vendors have quality merchandise, prices reasonable and the multiple regions represented at the food court make it a must visit.

As I was under no pressure to do anything I focused my attention on wandering and people watching and I soon realized why this area is kept a secret. Once in the Quay market area you are welcomed by the wholesome smells of fresh bread and homemade soups. I found the pace in the area very relaxing throughout the day.... More

We visited the Quay Market expecting a Granville island or a Seattle's Piles Place Market type of experience. No such thing. The 3rd floor was completely vacant, even some shops on the second floor had been vacated. Most shops are not artisan handcraft goods but middlemen store fronts. The only good part of the Quay was the accidental discovery of... More

What a great start or end point to an exploration of Vancouver! The quay was one block from our hotel Pinnacles. Absolutely fun place to eat great food and shop for unique and cool items. Easily accessible from Water Front sky train stop Vancouver via the sea bus 15 minutes! Summertime the quay is full of entertainment and fun!

A little market which we spent time to wander bout as we waited for the Seabus to arrive. A few quirky food and sweet stalls.

I thought this was going to be more like a farmers market. It turned out to be more shops with a few stalls down stairs. Had a food court also. Seen one shopping mall, seen them all. Pop in for a quick look but not much to see.
