Part food festival, part market, and part indie concert… there’s nothing quite like the eclectic Hawkers Market, returning to Vancouver this November.

Hawkers Market will be popping up for one day only on November 17, 2018 from 4pm – midnight at the Rocky Mountaineer Station (1755 Cottrell Street).

First started in Vancouver in 2013, Hawkers Market features independent chefs, breweries, distilleries, side hustles, pop ups & indie food producers in a format centred around a Hawker style eating and drinking experience where guests are able to choose from multiple tastings included in their wristband ticket.

An exciting, new foodie paradise seemingly inspired by Lego blocks will be launching in North Vancouver this summer. Hawkers Wharf, a harbour-front, open-air food market is a brand new concept in Vancouver, combining shared kitchen space, demonstration gardens, and alfresco dining.

The market will take over the space at 925 Harbourside Drive near the North Shore Automall and will host 20 to 40 retail and wholesale food businesses that will occupy shipping container boxes. (Hence, the Lego inspiration!)

This new development will be reminiscent of some of the world’s greatest open air markets with a laid-back, West Coast vibe. And there will be food, lots and lots of food!
