Hot Shopping: Scene in the City – Manitoba Meeting Place

The Forks Market sits at the confluence of the Assiniboine and Red River. Once the heart of Winnipeg’s fur trade, this historic meeting place endures as a bustling cultural hub. For a mystical experience, head up to the 2nd floor loft, and visit Distant Caravans. Have your fortune read, and peruse the exotic textiles and wares. Right around the corner, check out Iceland Skate Rentals, and lace up for an afternoon of skating the River Trail. Afterwards, head down to the main floor of the Forks Market to satisfy your sweet tooth at The Fudge Guy. Immortalize the picture perfect view in postcard form for loved ones, from Two Rivers souvenir shop. Don’t forget to pick up some Manitoba-made wares, such as these hand-carved wooden knives, from the Forks Trading Company (pictured).
