Haven't been here for a few years but we always take visitors to Winnipeg to the Forks Market. They were very impressed with how the building has been revitalized. Huge choice of restaurants at reasonable prices. Some great shops with local art upstairs.

We dropped into The Forks Market for coffee and cinnamon buns at the Tall Prairie Cafe. Although mid afternoon, the market was buzzing and we would have liked more time to poke around. Yes it is commercial (rather than rustic) but at least none of the big chain stores you find in the malls. Definitely want to go back sometime.

Just a fun (and yummy) collection of food places and shops. Lots of places to have a little taste or treat, or a complete meal. Shops offered a lot of local cultural items.

I love to people watch, listen to the buskers, have lunch or coffee and take a walk through the shops. I now rarely go there because of the parking situation. It has been so commercialized that you are lucky if you can find a parking spot. I have also noticed more people asking for money which I never saw before.... More

What an amazing assortment of stores! I had a blast buying little hand-blown figurines from "Custom Glass Figurines, Jewellery & Housewares, watching the Glass Blower and owner Kevin do some intricate work and later, happily chomped down on all day breakfast at Dannys where the food was good and the portions Plentiful! We had an Amazing time at The Forks!... More

The market wasn't quite what I was expecting, however, was fun to walk around and get some free food to taste. There are lots of souvenir shops and plenty of places to get some food - there is something for everyone!

Went to check this out, since it seems to be on everyone's list of things to do. It's a commercialized market at best, awkward mall more like it. The lay out is weird and has no charm of a real market. Lots of buildings, layout bit confusing. I will not be going back. I'm only giving it the 3rd star... More

The Forks has been a meeting place for hundreds of years and continues to serve this purpose. The center area has been recently remodeled. It looks great.

Beautiful eclectic market in the city. Many shops and food markets to visit, great places to eat and have a drink. It is situated on the river and is very picturesque.
