Trout Lake Economic Impact

Trout Lake Farmers Market

East Vancouver’s very own farmers market that attracts people from across the city!

With over 25 years of bringing local food vendors directly to city folks, the Trout Lake Farmers Market features fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meat, eggs, and dairy products, fresh fish, and artisanal prepared food to taste and take home.
Handmade crafts, as well as craft beer, wine, and spirits, are available for purchase, with food and coffee trucks also on site.

Its location in the north parking lot of John Hendry Park makes this urban farmers’ market a great one to walk, bike, or transit to. Buskers often eye for a spot to perform at the market too.
