    Large food court.
    The food options were amazing. I was very disappointed in the shopping. It was very touristy and lacked depth and high end boutiques. There were few options for really good native and local arts and crafts. But it was like the largest food court ever! And each looked delicious and well prepared.

    Very nice, food a bit on the pricy side.
    Let's start with the good things about this place. It is only 10 minutes away from downtown (as in Main & Portage). One block from the iconic Canadian Museum of Human Rights. The Place is maintained clean by a team of devoted staff (thank you!). All businesses are local businesses. You will not find there the chains you usually find in mini malls of the same size. The place is safe. Very crowded in the weekend but not so much on week days. There is a large plaza with outdoor seatings by the river. Weather permitting you can take your foods and drinks outside. The crowd seems to be mainly locals. Young couples and middle age residents. Not too many teens. And this is probably due to the prices they charge you for food. Comparable to what you would find in larger city like Toronto or Montreal. We had 2 burgers from NuBurger. $40. Another day we had two chicken quesadillas from a Mexican place there. Again , another $40. So I would say. Visit. Enjoy. But budget wisely.

    Nice hub for quick-ish dining and getting the traveler oriented while visiting Winnepeg
    This is a big food court with shops upstairs that we went to twice on our recent trip to Winnepeg. It has a lovely vibe to it, and is very capably organized and staffed. Like a lot of food court type environments, the food is going to vary depending on whether you make the right choices. Across our multiple visits when in Winnepeg, we had a stellar cinnamon bun and a very good pizza, a perfectly fine burger, and some disappointing Carribean food. The bookshop upstairs is worth the venture upwards for.

    Plenty of choice
    An upmarket food with local retail outlets. The grub is reasonably priced and there’s enough choice to keep everyone happy. The retail units are alright, some local stores mixed in with the expected tourist enticing souvenir shops but you can certainly kill an hour or so browsing the fur lined hats and the handcrafted jewellery. Worth a visit!

    Unique, and plenty of variety.
    Visited: 28/05/2023 We loved this quirky alternative market in Winnipeg. There are lots of craft and handmade stalls, the place smells delicious from all the food markets. You find something new behind every corner. It's perfect if everyone in your party fancies something different to eat, plenty of variety in food and drink. A nice little space outside for relaxing by the river with lounge chairs and benches. You also have a platform to get a view of Winnipeg from near the top which is nice too. Lovely unique marketplace with plenty to offer day or night.

    A gem
    Luckily this was only walking distance from our hotel....as we went 3 straight nights. Great selection of food....pizza, Mexican tacos....and fish and chips. Upon roaming around some more we found an ice cream place, a doughnut space, a great wine store and a candy place. You had to do a bit of searching for a table but they are available

    Fantastic!
    I'm so glad I came across The Forks Market when looking for shopping in Winnipeg. The food and shops are diverse and exceptional. It was my family's first time in Canada and most of us (2adults, 5kids) found goods uniquely made by local artisans. I would highly recommend this stop to anyone visiting Winnipeg!

with a limited variety, poor selections, and weird vibes, it felt more like a tourist trap than a place of interest. It was a disappointing family experience here at the Forks Market. Lousy service, unclean and unkept, too expensive, unimpressive food, elevators not working, grimy atmosphere, security in your face, drinking everywhere. The family was not pleased; the building was poorly managed. Not good, terrible.

An old market hall opened up with a selection of eateries and shops, we visited in the evening ,a lively set of options to eat, bit noisy so we went elsewhere but returned for breakfast and had a great freshly baked ham and cheese croissant and coffee, the touristy shops on offer we we felt not as previously reviewed, but higher class tourist gear, good selection for most tastes

The family came in and spent an afternoon at the Forks Market, not impressed, nothing but a food court maul, an uncomfortable eating area, bad air circulations, smoke from grills, and an overall poor shopping experience, lots of knockoff stuff at the Fake Forks Trading Company upstairs, nothing left and to much-overpriced maul garbage. Really too bad, drunks everywhere. The building seems to be falling apart, and not well kept, engineering structural failures are obvious. Cannot Recommend this place. Disappointing.

We visited the Forks Market and we found it a disaster and poorly managed. Our experience was warm beer, cold hotdogs, terrible service, uncomfortable seats, silly concepts, tourist trap expensive! Not what it once was. Nope, zero stars. not recommended.

I was amazed at how many people were braving the cold temperatures and enjoying the day outside! There was skating and sledding and my favorite, hot coffee!
