Note: Market details are subject to change. Check each market’s website for exact times, dates, and locations.

 

Downtown Farmers Market

Formerly called the Yaletown Farmers Market as it was previously located in Yaletown, Vancouver’s Downtown Farmers Market used to take place on Thursdays in the plaza outside the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at 649 Cambie Street by the corner of Hamilton and Georgia.

Up until 2016, the Yaletown Farmers Market typically had over 30 vendors each week and attracted more than 4000 visitors on its busiest days. After the move to its Queen Elizabeth Plaza venue the market had slightly fewer vendors and smaller shopping crowds, although it was still a good market.

After a hiatus in 2020 the market returned in 2021 with a new date and location. Now operating on Wednesdays in the plaza outside the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Downtown Market is open from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm from June until the beginning of October. 2022 market dates are from June 1st until October 5th. Check it out at the corner of Georgia and Hornby.

Main Street Station Farmers Market

The Main Street Station Farmers Market takes place from 2 to 6 pm from the beginning of June until the first week of October at 1150 Station Street, which is in front of Vancouver’s Central Pacific Station bus and train depot and just a short walk from Science World and the easternmost tip of the False Creek Seawall.

In 2020 the Main Street Station Market’s season was from June 3rd to October 7th. Unfortunately it was cancelled in 2021 due to construction and is again cancelled in 2022.

The Main Street Market is a great market at the edge of Thornton Park featuring over 40 vendors on a good day with numerous stalls selling fresh and organic produce.

See Main Street Station Farmers Market for more details.

Whistler Farmers Market

The Whistler Farmers Market usually takes place in the Upper Village at Whistler on Wednesdays from 2 to 7 pm in July and August, as well as on Sundays between 10 am and 3 pm from early June until early October.
