As I got ready on an early sunny Saturday morning to make my way over to the Squamish Connector from Vancouver, I felt geared up for the day ahead! The traffic was admittedly heavier than usual as the Gran Fondo marathon was happening in Whistler that weekend. And when we arrived at the penultimate stop – the Sea-to-Sky Gondola location, there was a quick washroom break and drop-off for those who required it.

I realized once I’d exited the washrooms (after a long line), the bus was no longer there! Panic mode activated. But, after speaking to some friendly staff members who gave me directions I made the 40-minute, rather sweltering journey on foot via the highway to reach Squamish Farmers’ Market. My perspiring body and empty stomach were ready to snarf down the entire market by this point. 

*Hot tip – if you’re using public transport, wait until your final destination to pee if you can hold it!

As I was getting ready to sample and sip, I came across a multitude of interesting vendors- from what seemed, every pocket of the world. See my top five below: 

There are different children’s activities that happen each week and it’s definitely dog-friendly- the pups were out and about!

It is also wheelchair accessible, and parking is available along the road or in the main parking lot nearby, where you’ll see the iconic mural with the words: Ḵ’ay̓áchtn Skwxwú7mesh Welcome to Squamish (Squamish and English languages).

The market is open Saturdays 10 am- 3 pm, until December 9, 2023.
