Market details:
The goal of the market is to support small-scale local food producers and make locally and sustainably produced food more accessible to the community. This year’s market will feature a variety of new & returning vendors, including local farmers, bakers, and artists. We would love to have you come out, meet your local food producers, taste great food and make new friends.

The market happens every Thursday starting June 28th till September 13th from 3 - 7PM at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House!

Mitigating Impacts:
The market aims to reduce negative impacts on neighbours. Most of the traffic to the market is foot and bike traffic. There will be live music every week that can be heard in the market area. This market has been licensed by the City of Vancouver as a Community Food Market. If you have any additional concerns, please contact Amrita.

Get involved!
There are many ways to get involved in this great project and enjoy evenings with your community. The market would not exist without the dedication of our community members & volunteers.

Share your skills: Join us at our “nextpert” booth to share your seasonal vegetable tips.
