Robson Square Artisan Market

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Located under Robson Street, where the ice rink entertains in the winter months, the Robson Square Artisan Market is now accepting applications for the 2011 season. They are looking for artisan vendors & family friendly entertainment for the season starting June 4th.

The market will be open Saturdays and Sundays this summer from 10:00am until 3:00pm. There is a one-time registration fee but after that, entertainers are invited to busk and they will welcome groups or solo acts. Stalls will be 8′ wide by 7′ and are not limited to just the skating rink area.

You can apply via the Robson Square Artisan Market website until May 18th, 2011. Find the market on Twitter or Facebook for updates, news, and contests throughout the summer.

    I dunno why you’re saying it’s $25. i just tried to apply and it said $50! And that’s only the early registration, if you register after the 13th it’s $75

    Hi zeke,

    I am stating exactly what I found on the website, under FAQ: “Do we have to pay to be there? Do we get paid or can we busk? A: Aside from the initial $25.00 for your registration fee, you don’t pay. We provide you with a covered space, an audience and invite you to busk and showcase your talent!”

    I can follow up to get some clarification from the organizers.

    Hi Zeke,

    Bit of confusion there:

    It is a one-time $25.00 application/processing fee for a pass to entertain down at Robson Square Artisan Market for the entire summer.

    It is a one-time $50.00 application/processing fee to apply as an Artisan Vendor for the entire summer.
