All good things must come to an end. With this Thanksgiving long weekend comes the conclusion of the Richmond Night Market‘s 2019 run, and that means it’s your last chance to wander the stalls, shop the bargains, and eat all the crazy food from the vendors.

While you may be a fan of the games, entertainment, or shopping, the Richmond Night Market is probably best known for its array of over 500 international foods.

This year, some of the most popular bites have been the rainbow grilled cheese sandwich, deep-fried crab claws, cheese tonkatsu, bubble tea in baby bottles, White Rabbit candy ice cream, all manner of grilled or fried seafood, and enduring street food classics like skewers, hurricane potatoes, mochi, takoyaki, and so much more.

The largest night market in North America is truly a feast for the senses, so if you aren’t worried about saving tummy real estate for a Thanksgiving feast, this is your last chance to eat your way around the world from the stalls of the Richmond Night Market.

Closing weekend hours are as follows:

  • Fri. Oct. 11 from 7 p.m.-midnight
  • Sat. Oct. 12 from 7 p.m.-midnight
  • Sun. Oct. 13 from 7-11 p.m.
  • Mon. Oct. 14 (Thanksgiving Day) from 7-11 p.m.

The Richmond Night Market is located at 8351 River Road in Richmond. Admission is $4.75 for anyone between the ages of 8-59; kids under 8 and seniors 60+ are free.

?Richmond Night Market @richmondnightmarket ?Crab Hut Vancouver F6. @crabhutvancouver . . OMG. One of our favourite stalls at the RICHMOND NIGHT MARKET hands down ??. One of Shanghai’s famous delicacies is HAIRY CRAB ? ROE. They offer their special crab sauce over your choice of RICE ? or NOODLE ? and topped with GOLDEN FLAKES ? and green onions. It was so delicious ? and we devoured it right away in a few minutes. The price is definitely very high at $15 for the amount you get but Hairy Crab (???) Roe is a rare delicacy which is hard to find in Vancouver so we would definitely recommend trying it for the experience. . The rice was super flavourful with the crab roe, not too salty and rich in crab flavour. We loved the rice one so much we ordered a noodle one right after. The sauce blends even better than rice with the sauce so if we had to choose, noodles might be a better choice. If you want to splurge a bit before Richmond Night Market ends for the year, go try this stall out ?! . Thank you Peter & Andy @crabhutvancouver for having us! ?? . . -??? #pandafoodiecouple #crab #crabs
