Westside Community Food Market

About

The Westside Community Food Market is a weekly market in the heart of Kitsilano, brought to you by Kitsilano Neighbourhood House & the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC). For 12 Thursdays from June 28 to September 13, the intersection of 7th & Vine transforms into a community market space. The market creates opportunities for small and new farmers, food processors, and artists who are committed to sustainability and have recently launched their own business. The market also increases access to local, sustainably produced foods to the Kitsilano community and offers a subsidy coupon program for low-income community members.
