The Japan Market Summer Festival takes place in Vancouver in June

Here is an event that you will definitely want to mark on your calendars, friends,

The Japan Market Summer Festival 2022 will take place at the Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza on Saturday June 11 and Sunday June 12.

This impressive summer market is particularly food-focused this year and will feature six food trucks and 12 other food vendors, as well as craft and merchandise vendors.

The organizers have shared a list of participating food vendors with Dished, so we know we can expect the following trucks and vendors:

Other sellers will sell products such as wellness products, fashion accessories, art, jewelry, etc.

Hosted by three different Japanese-Canadian vendors, the market will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.

According to the event’s website, the goal behind the market is to “create happy events where local Japanese vendors shine, as well as non-Japanese vendors, who have [a] passion and love for Japanese culture, to join this small Japanese community.”

There will also be chances to win prizes at the market.

Early-bird tickets are on sale through May 28, with one adult ticket $4 and two $7; after May 28, tickets will be $5 for one adult and $9 for two.
