Event Description

SPEC and KNH presents: The Westside Pocket Market

With the love for food and community, SPEC and Kits Neighborhood House (KNH) are putting together ten Pocket Markets this summer to nurture the growing local food movement and boost the local economy.

Pocket Markets play an important role in supporting the production and distribution of local food. The markets help bridge the gap for local farmers, urban backyard growers and local food eaters by providing an alternative market format that adds to the current make-up of the farmer’s market world.

Join us in celebrating community and the love for local food, starting every Thursday July 7 until Sep 8, from 3 pm to 7 pm at Kits Neighbourhood House (2325 7 Ave West).

  • Cherry Lane Farm
  • SOLEFood Farm
  • Salt Spring Coffee Co.
  • Giddy up and Grow
  • The World in A Garden/Seeds of Plenty
  • Rebecca Cuttler (backyard grower)
  • Sandhu Produce Growers
  • Levni Chocolates
  • Sev's Bread
  • Moji's Bread
  • Icy Fresh Pops (only if sunny)
The vendors will vary from market to market. If you want to become a market vendor to sell eggs, fresh produce or baked treats, please contact Sara Blenkhorn at
