Steveston

Whenever we crave fish n chips it’s time to make a trip to Steveston. Once home to 15 canneries, Steveston has long been known for its commercial fishery. Today, Steveston Village is better known as a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver. On a sunny day, thousands flock to the village to sample the restaurants and cafes on the waterfront or to just buy some fresh seafood directly from the fishers at the Public Fish Sales Float at Fisherman’s Wharf.
