The Whistler Farmers Market is a large farmers and artisan market that takes place in the Upper Village in Whistler at the base of Blackcomb Mountain.
START DATE POSTPONED
Opening day for the season is usually in late May for the Whistler Farmers Market. Due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus pandemic, however, the market is scheduled to run from June 21st until October 11th (so starting one month later than usual in 2020).
Whistler Village Market
With as many as 90 vendors on busy weekends in the summer, the Whistler Farmers Market is one of the largest markets of its kind within a couple of hours’ drive from Vancouver.
At the market there are a small number of vendors selling organic vegetables and other farm-fresh produce. There are also numerous artisans selling everything from pottery to clothing to gourmet chocolate and other treats.
When and Where
In 2020, the Whistler Farmers Market takes place on Sundays from June 21st until October 11th and on select Wednesdays in July and August. The market has a later start date in 2020 as compared to recent years as a result of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
2020 opening hours are from 11 am to 4 pm on Sundays and 2 pm to 7 pm on Wednesdays.
In addition to the regular Wednesday and Sunday events, the Whistler Farmers Market also happens on the Saturdays of select holiday weekends from 11 am to 4 pm. For 2020, these special Saturday markets occur on the Canada Day Weekend (July 4th), BC Day Long Weekend (August 1st), Labour Day Weekend (September 5th) and Thanksgiving Weekend (October 6th).
The markets take place around 4545 Blackcomb Way in Whistler’s Upper Village not far from the gondola to Blackcomb Mountain.
