Dozens of vendors will pack into the Cloverdale Fairgrounds this Saturday as the latest night market launches in Metro Vancouver.

The Surrey Night Market will include about 70 vendors when it launches this weekend, 46 selling food, and another 23 with retail kiosks across from the Cloverdale Agriplex at 17726 62 Ave.

In addition, there will be bands, dancers and other entertainment throughout the night.

Based on trendy weekend markets in Richmond that attract thousands of people from May through October, organizers are looking to bring that concept to this city.

Surrey’s version launches on Saturday night and will be an open-air market for residents buying and selling a variety of foods, services and goods.

It’s planned as a multicultural, family-friendly event for people throughout the region. It’s also expected the market will showcase a variety of talent and performing arts.

The Surrey Night Market will run from July 5 to Aug. 30 on Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Organizers anticipate the market will attract up to 8,000 attendees each night.

Admission is $2, and children under 48” tall get in for free.
