The ninth annual Vancouver Christmas Market is officially opened, until December 24. This year I got a chance to attend its media preview, and I was amazed by all the new attractions. And of course, I also did some digging and tasting to compile a list of best food stalls and new attractions in this German-themed holiday market.
It has been awhile since my last visit. I remembered coming here a year ago, when it first opened. Today, I revisited this cafe, because I won a $25 gift card at a giveaway from Quantum Coffee.
