Ladner Village Market began with 13 vendors in 1996 and has now grown into a summer attraction as one of western Canada’s largest open air markets spread over three blocks on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in June, July and August and the second Sunday of September
 
Hosting over 160 vendors through juried selection, the Ladner Village Market is built on the theme of "Make It, Bake It or Grow It". The summer market offers the community access to farm fresh produce and meats, artisans foods and handcrafted products in a festive atmosphere.

 

 
Bill McKnight, of South Coast Casuals in Ladner, is one of the founders of the summer Ladner Village Market.
