Summer on the North Shore

(June 26, 2014 )

For those of you who are planning to soak up all the perks our beautiful city has to offer,  I have highlighted a few hot spots here on the North Shore to consider adding to your list.

1. Famer's Markets: Running every Saturday from 10 am - 3 pm until October at both Lonsdale Quay and Ambleside Village, you will find local artisans, organic farmers and small businesses showcasing their product directly to Vancouver consumers.   Both locations are beautifully perched beside an oceanside backdrops, which makes browsing the eclectic tables even that much more pleasing. 

2. Friday night SHIPYARDS MARKET at the PIER:  On Friday nights from 5-10 pm, running now until the end of September, you can order from the many food trucks or take in the sounds of live music and savour a bevie (or two) in the wine & beer garden - all located at the Pier market at the foot of Lonsdale.  A beautiful setting and great community space, this is what Lower Lonsdale living is all about!  3. Free summer concert series:  Bring a picnic, a beach chair and sit back for a free night of entertainment.  The Friday concert schedule can be found here for Lynn Valley, Edgemont Village, and Deep Cove locations.  

4. Rent a kayak, canoe or paddle board in Deep Cove:  Nothing beats experiencing the beauty of the Indian arm from a front row seat of a kayak.  Check out the reasonable rates and details from this community focused rental shop here.
