The Yaletown BIA has partnered with the Vancouver Farmers Markets and VIVA Vancouver to present a weekly farmers market this summer on Mainland Street between Davie and Helmcken.

Attracting locals and visitors alike, the area will bustle with shoppers, food producers and growers. Market booths will feature fresh produce direct from the growers, artisan foods and baking, as well as a limited selection of non-food merchandise. The market will be offered for the height of the summer and fall harvest season. Fresh fruits, crunchy vegetables and luscious herbs will inspire tasty menus and dining all summer long.

Whether you are a local merchant, area employee, Yaletown resident or a visitor, the Yaletown Farmers Market on Mainland will provide you with snacks, groceries and goodies, an opportunity to showcase your business and a place to meet up with friends to enjoy Mainland Street in a fresh way. Yaletown is preparing a range of promotions and marketing activities to draw crowds and promote our neighbourhood.

6th Annual free Outdoor Movie Night

Sunday August 18th at dusk

Once again, the Yaletown BIA is partnering with James Schouw & Associates to present the Yaletown Outdoor Movie Night 2013 on Sunday August 18th. This much anticipated event draws in thousands of visitors to David Lam Park to enjoy a beautiful summer evening. To bring a little retro buzz this year, we are  featuring the 60's classic James Bond film GOLDFINGER.

Enjoy the world's most famous spy in this "license to thrill" action feature. Watch as the mint condition Aston Martin makes its debut in this fast-paced, gadget packed flick. Shirley Bassey belts out the soundtrack as Bond Girls assist Sean Connery to save the world (and Fort Knox). Visitors: arrive early to enjoy a meal or pick up some take out, and maybe even do a little shopping. Invite your customers, friends and family to come early for the Roundhouse Picnic in the Park from 4pm to 7pm or dine in at one of the many Yaletown's restaurants. Just be sure to head to the park early to ensure the best spot to watch the movie and bring a blanket with you so you will be comfortable. The movie begins at dusk!
