Punjabi Market came back to life last Sunday through anecdotes and cups of chai tea, as residents and business owners came together to share the importance of keeping it’s history alive.

Vancouver Heritage Foundation invited community members for breakfast at All India Sweets Restaurant to raise awareness of the market’s historical significance. In this video exclusive, Jessica Quan, special projects coordinator, explains why the market is a place that matters.
