If you’re looking for a fun summer market and festival to check out in Vancouver, look no further. Three local businesswomen have teamed up to put on a massive two-day Japanese-inspired fest, complete with art, crafts, and delicious eats. Let’s get into it.

Created back in 2018, the Japan Market pops up every season, hosting an array of Japanese (and non-Japanese) food, art, and fashion vendors and live performers. Now, the market is the largest of its kind in Vancouver, with over 70 vendors to check out.
