Vancouver Flea Market

The Vancouver Flea Market is the Lower Mainland’s best place for yard-sale-type stuff including collector’s items, second-hand toys and all kinds of bargains.


To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Vancouver Flea Market made the decision to temporarily close until further notice. However, the market reopened as of Saturday, June 13th, 2020.

Although open once again, it is not entirely business as usual at the market. Only a limited number of shoppers are allowed in at any one time, and shoppers are encouraged to use hand sanitizer, wear masks and maintain adequate physical distancing.

For more information about the status of the venue see the Vancouver Flea Market website.

The Best Place for Yard-Sale-Type Stuff

Looking for knickknack bargains? If you like yard sales then you’ll love the Vancouver Flea Market.

For some people this place is just a giant emporium of junk, but for others it is a second-hand shopper’s paradise. Picture a shopping mall of garage sales and that’s what you’ll find. The Vancouver Flea Market is nothing fancy, but still a good and interesting place for bargains.

About the Vancouver Flea Market

The Vancouver Flea Market has been running since 2002 and today the venue hosts flea markets and other special events most Saturdays and Sundays of the year. With just under 40,000 square feet of space, hundreds of vendors and thousands of shoppers each weekend, it’s the biggest indoor market of its kind in the region.

Location, Times and Admission

Located at 703 Terminal Avenue, the Vancouver Flea Market has everything from clothes to electronics, art, jewellery, toys, sports equipment, china, music and vintage everything.

Open every Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm, and most holiday Mondays from 10 am to 4 pm, admission is just a couple of dollars.

Parking isn’t great, so if you don’t find any available spaces right outside you may need to park a few blocks away (possibly down around the Vancouver bus and train station) and then walk back.

Tips and Advice

Below are some tips related to the Vancouver Flea Market and other related places.

TIP #1: Don’t go when it first opens or just before it closes as many vendors don’t finish setting up by opening time and many start packing up early.

TIP #2: If you like flea markets, another great place is the DTES Street Market. It’s not for everyone, but neither are flea markets in general. Another fabulous flea market is the Cloverdale Flea Market which takes place on Sundays at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. It’s huge and impressive.
