Mark your calendars, folks! You might not be perusing artisanal markets in Europe anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a taste of them right here in Vancouver. This summer, South Granville is getting a series of exclusive European-inspired street markets, and it all starts this Saturday. 

Market is coming to South Granville for 3 exclusive pop-ups that you won’t want to miss, and things are kicking off this weekend. In partnership with The Nooks, Got Craft? and Portobello West, the South Granville BIA is ready to present Market, a series of artisan summer events.

Nested under the cover of lush trees, Market will greet you on Granville St at West 10th Ave and 11th Ave. If you are carpooling with a couple of friends, no worries, there is a lot of street parking and off-street parking available. Transit will also take you there, so really, what’s your excuse for not checking it out? 

Another reason to go? The TGIF (Thank Granville It’s Food trucks) pod is just around the corner, along with many unique shops exclusive to South Granville. West Elm, Le Creuset, Turnabout Luxury Resale, and Suetables – just to name a few.
