June 13th, 2013 @ 11:19am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Farmers markets, night markets, and our beloved Granville Island Market are a big part of what makes living in Vancouver so great. In fact, the city could nearly double its farmers markets by the end of this decade. Today, I’ve dug up some old market photos from the Vancouver Public Library and City of Vancouver […]

Archive Photos of the Day: June in Vancouver

June 7th, 2013 @ 3:29pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

After hints of summer-like temperatures tease us in late May, the beginning of June is usually rather gloomy in Vancouver.

In my memory, early June is always pretty soggy. Camping trips where there is more room for tarps in the car than food, mastering angles and gutters when assembling said tarps, and huddling beside a snapping, steaming, fire filled with logs we did our best to keep dry. The summer sun should be on its […]
