Spring & Summer Markets In East Van 2018

25 Apr

Spring is finally here which means lots of lots of farmer markets starting around East Vancouver. There is always a great selection of  local produce, handmade goods, artisans breads, locally made jams, cheese, free range and organic eggs and of course wineries, breweries as well as spirits.  Each market is unique and offers a little something different. Trout Lake hosted by Vancouver Farmers Market is the largest. The location makes it rather perfect to have a picnic on the spot in the nearby park with your new purchases.  Mount Pleasant Farmers Market which is in Dude Chilling Park is a smaller market, but we love that it’s on a Sunday. The Italian Market is held approximately once a month during the summer months on Friday afternoon in the parking lot in front of the Italian Cultural Centre. It offers a similar selection of goods, but with more emphasis on Italian which includes food trucks and other gourmet food items. The Italian Cultural Centre also has a number of other events going in the summer including art exhibits, live music and/or dancing.  The Main Street Farmers Market is a great afternoon market and perfect for those just leaving downtown for home, or a quick cycle from Mount Pleasant and the Olympic Village. We have set out below the dates when the markets begin and end for the Spring/Summer season. We encourage you to stop by one or all of these markets during the summer season and support local.
