West End Farmers Market on Comox Street
The West End Farmers Market takes place along the 1100 block of Comox Street between Thurlow Street and Bute from the end of May until around the fourth week of October. It’s a medium-sized market that runs from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Parking in the area can be difficult due to limited spaces and can be expensive. If you’re visiting the market and don’t live in the West End, consider taking transit or bike there. Have a backpack if biking to store your purchased items.
In 2023, the market runs from May 20th until October 28th. If you’re a local in the area, this is a great place to shop for local produce and crafts, and something to snack on as you browse the vendors.
In a typical week the West End Farmers market has over 30 vendors. There are farmers selling fresh produce as well as local artisans and food trucks. The line of market stalls stretches all the way down the block.
