I remember when Portoabello West first started over two years (?) ago and I had coincidentally just gotten back from London not too long before that after having visited the REAL Portobello Market there! Anyway, Vancouver’s Portabello West is very typical of our local artist and designer scene with heavy ties to Fashion High. Think high-end craft fair and boutique-style products. Great for finding one-of-a-kind gifts.
Where: Rocky Mountaineer Station (101 – 369 Terminal Avenue)
When: 12pm to 6pm
Admission: $2 (children 12 and under get in for free)
If you’re not driving, the best way to get there is probably to take the Skytrain to the Main Street Science World station and walk for ten minutes to Rocky Mountaineer Station.
