The Squamish Street Market

The Squamish Street Market is a monthly summer event that features interesting boutique items as well as live music, art and food in downtown Squamish.


STREET MARKET CANCELLED

Unfortunately due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19 Squamish’s Sunday Street Market has been cancelled. Hopefully the event will take place again in 2021.


Squamish’s Sunday Street Market

Not to be confused with the weekly Squamish Farmers Market which takes place on Saturdays, the Squamish Street Market is a once-a-month event. In 2020 it appears that the markets have been cancelled.

At the event each month there are about two dozen food trucks and artisan vendors as well as a beer garden and live band. On a couple of the days in 2019 there was also a Live Art in the Park element featuring the work of artist KULR.

Tips and Advice

Below are some tips and suggestions to help you make the most out of your visit to Squamish and its monthly summer street market.

TIP #1: The market isn’t a big event. When we’ve been it has featured only a couple of dozen vendors. There is, however, the live music and a beer garden area too. The event is pretty small though, so not something you’d drive across the Lower Mainland to see and then head home again right after. It’s nice to check out though if you’re in the area, especially on days with nice weather.

TIP #2: Combine your visit to the Squamish Street Market with a visit to other places of interest. Britannia Mine and the West Coast Heritage Railway Museum, for example, are both family-friendly and educational attractions.

TIP #3: If you like Squamish and this kind of event, then also check out the Squamish Farmers Market which is almost identical but takes place weekly and on Saturdays. Both events happen in and around Junction Park on Cleveland Avenue. Both also feature a couple of dozen artisan vendors and live music.
