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.
The market may or may not happen in 2023. When we checked in early March 2023 the market’s official website no longer existed. That’s not a good sign. That doesn’t mean the market isn’t happening this year though. Exact details are to be confirmed.
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 and 2021 the summer markets were cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. In 2022, the Squamish Street Market happened on Sunday, July 31st. It ran from 11 am until 5 pm.
In months that the event happens, there are usually about two dozen food trucks and artisan vendors as well as a beer garden and live band.
Below are some of the various participating vendors and food trucks in 2022. For the full list of vendors visit the Squamish Street Market website.
- All Good Things From BC – handcrafted and picked items designed and made in British Columbia.
- Carte Diem – a traditional Greek food truck.
- Golden Crust Specialties – a local bakery that sells pies, tarts, cinnamon buns and more.
- Iron Dog Books – an Indigenous-owned book truck.
- Lorna Gemstone Jewelry – handcrafted jewelry based out of North Vancouver.
- Norman Rudy’s – a local restaurant offering food, beers and ciders.
- Relaxation Island – natural oil products made with local ingredients.
Below was the main stage entertainment schedule for the 2022 Squamish Street Market:
- 11:00 am – Opening Ceremonies (with Squamish Nation’s Deanna Lewis)
- 11:30 am – Squamish Dance Centre
- 1:00 pm – The Overcomers

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 huge event (or at least it wasn’t the last time we went). 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. The Britannia Mine Museum and West Coast Heritage Railway Museum, for example, are both family-friendly and educational attractions. The Squamish Logger Sports Days Festival also happens on the same weekend in 2022.
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.
