Inside Jobs 

These opportunities usually happen inside our office during the week. They can be anything from filing and data entry to market money counting with our awesome Office Coordinator, Christa. 

(psst... they're great for people who want to help out but have a hard time being outside in the rain!)

Hastings Park Winter Market at the PNE

Winter Market on the East Side!

Located within a thriving community close to the highway and the Second Narrows Bridge, the Hastings Park Farmers Market is a perfect place to stop and shop. PrintFind us between the Forum and the Agrodome and stroll down tree-lined pathways, wander through the Italian garden and stop by the sanctuary pond, bring the kids bundled up and play in the playground, or drop into the skateboard park if you’re brave! There’s plenty to do for everyone in the family.

The Hastings Park Farmers Market features a great selection of local produce; nursery items, fish, meat & dairy; artisan prepared foods, baking and treats; the best in local crafts, and of course, hot food trucks.

Nat Bailey Winter Farmers Market

The best place to be on a rainy Saturday

Shop local year-round: Each week you can look forward to finding locally grown vegetables and fruit, meat and seafood from local ranchers and fishermen, artisan cheese and bread, herbs and seasonal nursery items, baked goods, prepared foods and artisanal craft.

Stick around for a while: Find a selection of food trucks and hot drink vendors along with market musicians for your enjoyment. We’ve got plenty of covered seating areas and warming stations too.

Come meet the producers who make, bake or grow what they sell!

Mission Statement


be a leading force toward healthy farms and people


transform our global food system by creating and nurturing a local, sustainable and vibrant marketplace for our community, environment and economy.


As a society that oversees and administers multiple neighbourhood farmers markets in Vancouver, YLFMS operates with the following set of defined values.


The shortest distance between the producer and the consumer for seasonal and value- added items grown and made in B.C., or for those products that are “uniquely Canadian” and are brought to market by the producer. No out-of-Canada imports are allowed and nothing is re-sold.


Sustainability is defined by a self-sufficient non-profit society (where outputs do not exceed inputs on any resource level including human, financial, creative, environmental, etc) with: clear governance policies that define the nature of full participation from its main stakeholder groups; clear recognition, endorsement and support from the municipality; fair and clear working standards for all staff; simple, user-friendly working systems in office and at markets; well-articulated, realizable plan for growth and development in all areas.

Community approach

A community approach actively seeks participation from, and development with, community members including neighbourhood market residents and supporters, area businesses, and institutions. A community approach also operates with an awareness of who is not participating, evaluates why this is and if and how those left-out can be included.
