Despite the fog and rain, Vancouver Farmers Markets are still going strong thiswinter as they setup every Saturday outside Nat Bailey Stadium. For the month of February they’ll be trying something new by adding a Food Truck Festival – doubling their regular number of food trucks.
Visitors are invited to vote on their favourite “new recruit” food trucks and the top selections will be invited to join the roster as regulars at the busy summer markets. There will also be live music, covered seating, and the usual fresh, local offerings that you can find at the market each week.

- Ze Bite: Ze bite is Vancouver’s premier French cuisine food truck featuring delicious stews and speciality sandwiches made from scratch with locally sourced ingredients.
- JJ’s Trucketeria: The brightest yellow food truck you’ve seen yet, serving seasonal creations made from scratch with a unique cultural mix of flavours.
- Slavic Rolls: Slavic Rolls offers a great tasting pastry, made fresh in front of customers.
- Feastro The Rolling Bistro: Feastro is the famous purple truck with the fabulous and award winning seafood tacos, fish and chips, salads, chowders and daily specials.
