Farmers Market Produce

Saturdays are the busiest days for farmers markets in the Lower Mainland with them occurring everywhere from the Fraser Valley to Vancouver and Squamish.

Vancouver Saturday Farmers Markets

Saturday markets within the City of Vancouver include farmers markets at Riley Park, Trout Lake and the West End.

In Vancouver on a Saturday in the summer the Trout Lake Farmers Market is definitely the most impressive, although the others are good too. In colder months, Riley Park is the largest winter market in the entire province!


Riley Park Farmers Market

Operating on Saturdays between 10 am and 2 pm, the Riley Park Farmers Market is Vancouver’s newest summer market. In winter though, formerly known as the Nat Bailey Winter Farmers Market, it is one of the region’s oldest and largest.

Riley Park was launched in 2017 as a summer market with just under three dozen vendors. Since then, every summer, it continues to operate as a smaller summer market. In 2023 it runs on Saturdays from April 1st until October 28th.

Since the fall of 2018, however, and running all winter, Riley Park becomes the renamed Nat Bailey Winter Farmers Market and hosts over 60 vendors each week in the parking lot of Nat Bailey Stadium at 4601 Ontario Street. The most recent winter market began on November 5th in 2022 and ran until March 25th in 2023.

The Trout Lake Farmers Market’s season runs from April 1st until October 28th in 2023. It’s an impressive market on a busy day and one of our favourites.

Sea to Sky Saturday Farmers Markets

About a 50-minute drive from Vancouver along one of the world’s most scenic highways is the town of Squamish, home to a farmers market in one of the most beautiful parts of the Lower Mainland.


Squamish Farmers Market

The Squamish Farmers Market is the fairly large farmers market in the Sea to Sky region that takes place at the corner of Victoria Street and Cleveland Avenue in Squamish.

Shopping at the market starts at 10 in the morning and remains open until 3 in the afternoon every Saturday from April until near the end of the year.

In 2023 the market runs from April 1st until December 9th.


Weekend Night Markets

In addition to all the above farmers markets, in the summer on weekends, including Saturdays, a number of exceptional night markets take place throughout the region.

Night markets on Saturday evenings include the Richmond Night Market which has a distinctly Asian theme and very little in the way of organic produce and locally grow vegetables. For different reasons, though, it too is well worth visiting on Saturday evenings in Metro Vancouver.
