    Summer night market in Richmond has opened again this year. (There were rumours of the previous owner Richmond Nightmarket to reopen at a New Westminster location. However, he failed to meet the contract etc. thus there's only one nightmarket in Richmond this year.)
    12631 Vulcan Way
    Richmond, B.C.
    (Behind Home Depot on Sweden Way)

    From Curry fish balls to just random games such as the scoop gold fish with a paper net!
    If you're craving for a late night snack, they're open on Friday nights and Weekend nights!

    Even if he did get the contract, I don't know how well a "Richmond" Nightmarket would work in New West.

    Got tired of nightmarket and actually haven't been since the new owner started running it. How does it compare?

    Definitely not that great anymore. I just go for the late night snacks, it's still yummy! As for the vendors, nothing worth going to see.

    A friend of mine has a bucket list of stuff that he wants to do sometime...one is an eating contest (don't ask...). Heard that there are fried chicken and fish ball eating contests at the night market. Anyone know about these events??

    They say Night Market is moving every year but they always end up at the same spot in Richmond. They did, however, rearrange everything and there are now eating contests!

    I absolutely LOVE the food there! Go right before closing to get good deals on the food :p

    This is a must-do event - the food, the smells, the people - it really is like going to a Hong Kong night market!

    yes they have dragon beard candy .. I finally tried it for the very first time last week. It's strange at first but its quite tasty! And its the same guy who has been making it for years ... Also try those waffle-ly egg ball thingys. There was a 25min wait for pickup for them when I was there on a Friday night but definitely get two to make the wait worthwhile :)
