Market Square, Victoria Canada, 2010

This is one more of those places having the name they do not deserve. Space is social and it is within the shopping centre named Market Square built in 1800 when Victoria was enjoying tremendous growth and prosperity. Heritage brick-and-beam buildings surround an open air courtyard – a great place to take a break and enjoy a take-out lunch.
Specialty stores and boutiques and several restaurants are completing the picture. There are two social places on both levels and they are both quite enjoyable.
