Note: Check with individual markets for hours and safety guidelines as our community begins to reopen. Many have virtual options as well.
In Vancouver USA, there is a market for almost every neighborhood to stroll through for fresh, local produce and handmade trinkets. There is no doubt that markets will look different this year. They will run more like spaced out, outdoor grocery produce sections than a fun event to attend during the week with your family. Safety guidelines for vendors and customers will be continually updated—view the individual market websites for more details.
Mondays: Figure out what fresh ingredients you need for the week!
Tuesdays: The Salmon Creek Farmers Market, located in North Vancouver, is a community-based market held outside Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This market starts mid-June and runs through the beginning of October.
