Shopping District

Main Street

Main Street has a variety of original Vancouver and Canadian fashion boutiques, plus high-quality second-hand wares, collectibles and antiques.

The hip, local counterpart to downtown’s glitzy Robson Street

While the area does include antique and consignment stores, the real reason to visit is the fashion: South Main boutiques are home to some of the best independent Canadian and local fashion in the city.

While the official neighborhood name is Mount Pleasant, the portion of Main Street that runs from 2nd Avenue to 33 Avenue is also known as “South Main” or “SoMa”.  While all of Vancouver has gentrified over the last twenty years, this area has rapidly and radically changed. Once genuinely seedy, students and artists moved in about 20 years ago, followed by hipsters–who transformed South Main into the trendy neighborhood it is today–and now affluent hipsters.

There’s a very Vancouver-vibe to South Main that makes it a great destination for visitors. Along with several of Main Street’s best restaurants and nightlife (see below), this area is one of the best places to shop in Vancouver. Along with home decor shops and antiques, there’s boutique Canadian fashion stores throughout the strip.
