A trip to the Olympic Village to browse around the Portobello West Market with my friend Kath.
An outing like this included, not only the craft fair, but also an exploration of the village which was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Vancouver’s Olympic Village has since been converted to a mixed-use space nestled in the iconic False Creek area and is one of the greenest communities in the world.
Our day was filled with shopping and browsing through beautiful artisan jewelry, clothing, accessories and tasty handcrafted edibles like gorgeous chocolates and delectable savouries. After we had shopped our hearts out, we walked around the village, sipping coffee, and enjoying the views of the water, the city and the art and nature that adorns the community.
It’s always fun to stroll around the city exploring the neighbourhoods like False Creek. These are a few photos of our adventure from the summer of 2011. Enjoy!
