Are you ready for a festive celebration of contemporary handmade featuring the Vancouver’s foremost voices in craft and design? This is your one-stop shopping event for one of a kind gift-giving!

Shop handmade, discover new local talents, connect with creativity and explore a range of lifestyle offerings. AND…this year, we are teaming up with the Wesbrook Village for a massive Winter Festival. In addition to the Etsy Vancouver Market, there will also be: Balloon Winter Wonderland, housed in the 1,600 sq ft Wesbrook Welcome Centre, DIY make and take crafts, live music, bars and restaurants on-site, and much more!

Each market is uniquely and carefully curated, featuring amazing new talent and debut vendors at every event. Our markets launched in 2014 and have been steadily growing ever since, so come along and find out what the fuss is about.

Line-Up:


Washroom:

There are washroom facilities available in the building.


First Aid:

On site first aid is available. If you or someone in your group requires emergency medical attention, please find your way to the Etsy Welcome table, or please alert one of the Etsy Vancouver crew who will be able to assist.


Parking:

Two underground parkade (indicated by the yellow star) and one outdoor parkade (indicated by the blue star) are free to park during market hours.


ATM:

There are ATM’s available near the market, however these are known to attract long queues at every event. Many stalls now accept debit / credit cards, but we strongly suggest you bring cash with you to avoid any disappointment.


Disabled Access:

All areas of the building used by the markets, including toilet facilities, are accessible for wheelchairs.


Strollers Parking:

Baby strollers and wheelchairs may be stored at the Stroller Parking located next to the ticketing booth. We strongly recommend removing all valuables and personal items from strollers before leaving them at the Stroller Parking.

Strollers are allowed in the market; however, please be aware that, for safety reasons, no handcarts, trolleys, rolling luggage, or over-sized strollers are allowed in the market. Shoppers found with these items will be asked to leave the Stroller Parking.


Swag Bag:

Goodie bags for the first 50 shoppers each day! Often the lineup for our swag bags starts as early as 8:00 a.m. each morning of the show. We can’t say for sure when to get there to be guaranteed a spot as one of the first 50 in line, but sometime between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. (doors open at 10:00) is probably a safe bet.


Application:

Applications for our winter market are now closed.


Volunteers:

If you don’t feel ready to apply but want to get a feel for how the show is run, we highly suggest volunteering at a show. To find out more, sign up for our newsletter so you’ll know when we are looking for volunteers and/or interns. Alternatively, you can always send an email to crystal@etsyvancouver.ca and let her know you want to join.
