Vancouver is an up-and-coming city with a lot to offer, and travelers who visit will have plenty to keep themselves occupied. But if Kiwis make the trip before the end of the year, they'll be able to sample some local flavors that others won't.
The farmers market is a worldwide tradition, and many travelers make it a point to hit up these events whenever they're in a new area in order to experience the local flavor of the region. Vancouver has its fair share of farmer markets for those interested, but from October to December, much of the action will move indoors - to the baker's market.
Housed in a warehouse on East Kent Avenue and open everyday from 11 to 3 PM, this event gathers dozens of bakers to ply their wares in one venue. Travelers will be able to sample and choose from a wide variety of brownies, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, breads, pretzels, croissants and many other sweets and baked goods.
Kiwis used to the warm climate in New Zealand might find Vancouver a bit chilly this time of year, so heading indoors to sample some sweets is the perfect way to warm up.
It's always a great time to visit Canada, but with the advent of the baker's market, it seems like Vancouver holidays just got a little sweeter.
