Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre is proud to present Il Mercato, the city’s first Farmer and Italian Night Market starting Friday, August 15 at 3:00 pm. The Italian Cultural Centre is located at 3075 Slocan Street at Grandview Highway in East Vancouver.
The mercato will run every third Friday of the month until November 21, 2014.
This market is the first of its kind in Vancouver bringing together the tastes of Italy with the produce grown from local farms. The community is invited to come shop for a vibrant assortment of fresh fruit and vegetables, handmade products from local artisans and delicious food prepared by Il Centro’s chef.
Stay for live Italian music featuring the classic mandolin and accordion, and children’s activities provided by Il Centro’s Italian school teachers.
The Italian Cultural Centre is conveniently located close to the Renfrew Skytrain station and the Central Valley Greenway bike path. It’s worth a stop on your way home from work to get a taste of Italy!
The first 50 shoppers to the mercato on Friday, August 15 will receive a coupon for a 10% discout on Italian language classes offered at Il Centro.
