Richmond Night Market (8351 River Road. Richmond), the largest night market in the Vancouver area, has announced that it will open in mid-July. (Vancouver Economic News) The market, which attracts about 1 million people every summer, is the largest Asian night market in North America with more than 250 stalls selling food, games, and merchandise. Last year, which was scheduled to celebrate its 20th anniversary, it was canceled due to the spread of coronavirus infection. In British Columbia, where vaccinations are currently underway and infections are declining, the deregulation plan went to Step 3 on July 1st, allowing outdoor events to be held. The market operator calls for visitors, saying, “We are pleased that the state’s deregulation will progress and events and festivals will be held as usual.” The opening date, admission fee, business hours, etc. will be announced at a later date.
