Torontonians moving to VanCity and need some help!

leslievillian | Mar 13, 2009 08:13 AM

Me and my partner are moving to Vancouver this summer and need some help!

We want to live in a neighbourhood that has as many as the following as possible and are hoping some of you might have some suggestions!

Is there an equivalent neighbourhood to something like Queen West West/Parkdale/Trinity Bellwoods? Meaning we are looking for a neighbourhood that has:

Young but talented Chefs that are opening or running great restaurants
late night food
delicious espresso bars?

A farmers market. Either all year round or at least seasonal.

An organic or naturally raised butcher shop. Ideally they would bring in whole animal so second cuts are easy to get a hold of.

Independent grocers/cheese boutiques/fish mongers. Again, whose focus is sustainable/artisinal harvesting/producing.

At least one comfortable bar.

Food is incredible important in our lives. I cook for a living. Neither one of us are very familiar with the city and need your help in finding the right 'hood to start our search.

Thanks so much in advance!
