With so many scenic spots on the North Shore, us here at Lonsdale Quay Market are thrilled to have been voted the North Shore News Reader’s Choice for their favourite local Instagram spot and favourite place to take a selfie.  From stunning sunsets to some of the best waterfront views of Vancouver, the Market has great spots to take the perfect Instagram picture.

The Q

The Q

More than 30 years later, and the iconic Q at Lonsdale Quay Market is still one of the top spots to take the perfect picture for your Instagram feed.  Rain or shine, this massive sign always looks impressive for a picture.

From the Top of the Q

Top of the Q

If you’re willing to climb a little, you can take the quick 77 steps up to the top of the Q tower for an unbeatable view of Vancouver. With just a little bit of exercise you can watch the SeaBus crossings, snap a picture of the great view, or even snap a picture of you and your friends for your summer Instagram feed.

Waterfront Plaza

The plaza in front of the Market has a great view of surrounding docks, the Vancouver skyline in the distance and the sun reflecting off the water. Take a snapshot of the view while you sit and enjoy some food from our vendors, like fresh sushi from Akebono Sushi, or tasty charcuterie from Bowen Island Pizza Co.

Love Locks at the Pier
