Winter Food in Vancouver

The Vancouver Christmas Market is a longstanding holiday highlight in the city, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Here are our top three food picks in the German-themed bazaar’s Marktplatz


Pearls Perogies is a longtime fixture at the market, serving up freshly made Polish potato dumplings with locally sourced ingredients such as cheddar and cottage cheese. These indulgent snacks are a big part of several Eastern European cultures.


Transylvanian Chimney Cakes specialise in one signature product: kürtőskalács, sugar-coated Hungarian dough spirals. Wrapped around a wooden stick before being placed in the oven, the crispy cone resembles a hot chimney. Grab one, or three, at the market.


Haxen Haus is the place for carnivores – you’ll love the Bavarian schweinshaxe, a crispy pork hock (or knuckle) slow-roasted on a special rotisserie spit. This traditional peasant food is big at Oktoberfest and even better for a hot winter meal.
