It’s with regret that we announce the permanent closure of our Saturday Kerrisdale Market, which took place each June – Oct at 5500 East Boulevard. Despite having the loyal following of a core group of Kerrisdale regulars, this location suffered from declining attendance and vendor sales over the past few seasons.
While it is never an easy decision for us to close a market, we’re happy to report that overall, our markets are attracting more shoppers than ever before. Last year, 455,000 shoppers came out to VFM markets, an increase of 5,000 from 2014.
This season, we have 6 weekly summer locations across the city where you can shop local. Each of our neighbourhood markets needs the support of regular shopper attendance to grow and thrive. Shop weekly, and tell your friends!
