The Bernardino family who run Union Market are just amazing. This is the best place to buy home made chouriço, already rolled out frozen pizza dough, fresh croissants, etc. Their orange fritters (which disappear fast) and portuguese custard tarts are legendary.
Conveniently nestled in the eclectic Strathcona community on the Adanac bike route, Union Market serves traditional portuguese foods, homemade meals, freshly baked breads and coffees. Whether you’re grabbing coffee and food fuel for your pedal-powered commute, having a leisurely lunch with friends or stopping by for groceries on your way across town, Union Market is sure to delight! For over 25 years the Bernadino family have been welcoming friends and strangers through their doors, one of Vancouver’s hidden gems, a visit to Union Market might just become a daily habit.
