This signature shopping experience returns to beautiful Yaletown in downtown Vancouver with its two-day holiday market, featuring nearly 70 B.C. artists, designers and producers. Trust us, this is the can’t-miss market of the season!

So mark your calendar: Saturday, November 26, and Sunday, November 27, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine, at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews, Vancouver, B.C. Support local and shop safely from a curated selection of vendors that produce quality and handmade fashion, jewelry, art, home décor, and skincare. In addition, find pet accessories, gourmet treats and wine and spirits. Peckish? Check out the food trucks onsite. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children that are 12 years and under.

Need more reason to attend? Portobello West remains Vancouver’s premiere shop local market. In addition to being voted by the Georgia Straight readers as one of the Top 3 Artisan/Craft Fairs from 2010-2018, Portobello West also features a top-notch selection of established and emerging artists and designers. Plus, in addition to being a great place to shop, you can also support local because all funds collected go directly back into Portobello West’s markets. A true maker’s market! —Vita Daily
