The Etsy Vancouver Market features over 80 independent makers in the gorgeous Pipe Shop Building in North Vancouver. Find some lovely local designers and artists from Vancouver!

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.

Event Facilities and Features:

· Say cheese! We’ll have a fun Etsy Vancouver backdrop for your photo album! Make sure to take a picture with our mascot!

· You are more than welcome to bring your stroller and use it in our market! For your comfort, we have complimentary stroller parking space located in our venue.

· We’re beating the winter with our warming station! A mobile warming station will be set up for those waiting in line at the market.




There are washroom facilities available right outside of 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.

Nearby Festivals:

We’re fortunate to share the weekend with The Shipyards Christmas Festival at Shipbuilders’ Square. On Saturday, December 3rd from 5-8pm, the square will be transformed into a winter wonderland, filled with the sound of music, carols and the inviting smell of free warm coffee and rich hot chocolate!


Free parking at the Lonsdale Quay Market parkade for 2 hours.
Free weekend parking at the ICBC parkade, entries off Rogers Avenue and Carrie Cates Court.

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.


Unfortunately the venue does not allow pets.


Applications for our winter market are now closed.


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 and let her know you want to join.
