209th DTES Street Market in Vancouver

209th DTES Street Market and 23rd Street Market of 2014

Roland Clarke, Coordinator of the DTES Street Market says:

It was a beautiful day.
Only a slight hint of rain kept the weather nice and cool throughout the afternoon.

It was a near perfect day in a street market that was very near capacity.

Despite this, there were no major incidents.

We had a vendor that was kicked out (due to not being from the neighbourhood, and previously selling questionable goods) come back. Due to some help from the VPD, we removed her again from the market.

We also had another positive interaction with the VPD when a vendor was directed to the market from where they were originally selling – on the unit block of East Hastings St.
The vendor came down, and then we tried to find him a new spot within the market, since he originally set up on the east side of Carrall St.
He was a little upset about being moved again, and said he would just go home. We tried to help him, and got good help from the VPD during the interaction.

Chuck Hughes cooking at Eat Vancouver 2014

Peter of AHA MEDIA says:

Coming off Vikram Vij’s Indian review, I had a chance to sit down and take in Chuck Hughes’ (of Chuck’s Day and Week Off on Food Network) show at the Eat Vancouver Festival. To say that they are very different would be an understatement. Where Vikram had colorful and handmade curries, Chuck brought refined french cooking. Where Vikram brought a down to earth style of presentation, Chuck was rough, abrupt, and sarcastic. However, these added to his charm as he kept people fascinated by his descriptions of french cuisine. His scallops were a huge hit but what had people talking was his upside down cherry tort. Would I recommend Vikram over Chuck? Not at all. Both are amazing chefs but with completely different styles and backgrounds.
