The Main Street Farmers Market in Thornton Park, near Main Street SkyTrain Station!

As you might recall, I wanted to do some posts highlighting summer destinations you can get to on transit. So here’s one: the new Main Street Farmers Market!

Map of the market location.

The market is held every Wednesday from 3pm to 7pm in Thornton Park, which is just next to Main Street SkyTrain Station.

It used to be at Riley Park near Nat Bailey Stadium, but they moved it this year to serve more people at a more accessible location.

It’s a great new place to stop on the way home for fresh dinner ingredients — and there’s even bike delivery service in case you buy too much!

You can grab the SkyTrain to get there, or use bus routes 3, 8, 19, and 22, which stop at Main and Terminal. It’s also close to several bike routes: you can use Cycle Vancouver to plan a route there.

And catch it while you can: the Main Street market will only be open from June 10 – October 21. More about the market and its organizer, the Vancouver Farmers Markets, can be found here.

If you have a transit/bike-accessible summer spot to nominate, email me!

    Slightly OT….

    For those that haven’t heard the Commercial drive car-free day is now canceled for the rest of the year.

    Finally the #20 can run more reliably with full artic service on the whole route on Sundays. It’s too bad they wouldn’t accommodate transit better.
