Formerly called the Poirier Street Farmers Market, the Coquitlam Farmers Market takes place on Sundays in Coquitlam from early May until late October.
In 2023 the market will likely start up on May 5th (which is also Cinco de Mayo, a day when Mexican parties happen around town). Exact details about the market’s starting details, however, are to be confirmed.

Offering a selection of products that are “made, baked, grown or raised in BC,” the market has been running for over 20 years.
Items for sale at the Coquitlam Farmers Market include farm-fresh produce, baked goods and everything from handmade jewellery to candles, art, wine and chocolate. A number of food trucks serve a variety of tasty treats for lunch and snacks.
On busy weekends over 60 vendors participate, making it one of Metro Vancouver’s largest farmers markets.
When and Where
Coquitlam’s Poirier Street Farmers Market happens on Sundays from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. It usually runs from early May until late October. The 2022 season began on Sunday, May 1st, and ended October 30th. The 2023 season will likely be similar.
Located in central Coquitlam, the market takes place outdoors at the Dogwood Pavilion by the corner of Winslow Avenue and Poirier Street. The venue is just behind the Poirier Library at 624 Poirier Street.
Tip: In case you were interested, Mundy Park is a large urban park that’s just 1 km (or a 15-minute walk) east of the farmers market. The park has an outdoor swimming pool in the summer, forest trails and a small lake in the trees to walk around.
