We know where we’ll be shopping and noshing and hanging for the next few weeks: the first-ever Outdoor Summer Market is happening every Saturday until the end of August #onRobson. In partnership with Fall for Local Markets, the finest local makers, artisans and entrepreneurs are being brought to Robson Street to offer a curated selection of organic products and goodies, as well as handcrafted items, every Saturday in August from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Simply head to 700 Bute Street (between Robson Street and Eihu Lane), where the pop-up market will also include some of Vancouver’s favourite food trucks and fare, plus live music and dance by Small Stage, photo booth by Hoopla, and interactive games!
