Quite a story here, based on a court action against the Yaletown Business Improvement Association brought April 2, 2016 by local business owners who didn’t like the Yaletown Farmers Market blocking their street (Mainland) and reducing parking one day a week from May to October. But the market now has a new and better location — the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza.
According to Eric MacKenzie in 24 Hours.
VFM had to abandon its previous Thursday location at 1200 Mainland St. earlier this year after several area businesses filed a BC Supreme Court petition requesting the market be moved to reduce negative impacts to nearby storefronts.
I’m pleased to see the QE Plaza as home to fresh fruit & veg, artisan treats, sausages and chocolate — among a wide variety of other things. Including this coffee vendor, who told me that he “…bikes his work to work” (Green Coast Craft Coffee).
