Made in the 604 Markets in Vancouver

Made in the 604 began in 2017 as both a market and a place of connection for local businesses. The website’s blog shines a spotlight on a variety of entrepreneurs and organizations in Metro Vancouver, but the biggest part of Made in the 604 are the regular pop-up markets.

There are two markets that run semi-regularly from around late March or early April until late November or mid-December. One is on Vancouver’s Main Street at Heritage Hall and the other is in the Shipyards District in North Vancouver.

Both markets have dozens of vendors that are local, small business owners and artisans. There is no admission fee required to browse the markets and there are plenty of different products to admire. You’ll find all kinds of unique and wonderful things to buy! And if you’re lucky, you might get some tasty samples too!

What to Expect

There is not a set lineup of vendors who are at every market so the composition of the markets changes each time. Some vendors are regulars, but many are not. The Heritage Hall market usually has around 40 to 50 vendors. The Pipe Shop market is bigger. At it you can expect as many as 70 or so vendors depending on the day.

The vendors are all local businesses with a range of different products. They sell clothes, ceramics, skincare products, food, pet care items and more. Both venues are dog-friendly, which is kind of cool, so you can expect to see the occasional four-legged customer while browsing the markets.
