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!

Locations and Schedule

The original Made in the 604 Market location is Vancouver’s Heritage Hall. The venue is in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood at 3102 Main Street. After this first market proved successful a second, larger market began at The Pipe Shop in North Vancouver. The Pipe Shop is located at 115 Victory Ship Way.

The two markets open and close for the season around the same time, but they rarely operate on the same days. Both venues have around a dozen market days each year.

2022 dates for the Heritage Hall market were April 10th, May 8th, June 12th, June 26th, July 17th, August 13th & 14th, October 2nd & 23rd, November 6th, 19th & 20th, and December 3rd, 4th, 17th& 18th. The market at this location usually opens at 11:00 am and closes at 5:00 pm.

Dates for The Pipe Shop market in 2022 were March 26th & 27th, April 24th, June 5th, July 23rd & 24th, August 20th & 21st, October 16th and December 3rd, 4th, 17th & 18th. The market in North Vancouver opens at noon and closes at 6:00 pm.

In 2023, Made in the 604 Markets take place on April 15th and 16th in North Vancouver’s Shipyards District and on April 30th at Heritage Hall in Vancouver. The rest of the 2023 schedule hadn’t yet been determined as of the end of March. It will likely be comparable, however, to what happened last year.

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.
