Love Dim Sum, or perhaps you’ve wanted to check out State Bird Provisions in San Francisco despite the three month wait list for a reservation?

Fear not! Hawkers Market is adding collaborative Dim Sum to Saturday’s Hawkers Market, which will be the last one for several months so if you have been waiting to check out a Hawkers, this is the one for you.

What is collaborative Dim Sum? Hawkers Market and JS Reclaimed Wood have teamed up to build wood cart that will be roving the market with cheap and delicious deals on special food items.

You’ll have to track down the cart as it wanders through the warehouse.

Offered on the cart will be items from multiple Hawkers vendors doing one offs. Expect a delicious fried savoury burratta cheese doughnut, fresh oysters and little tasters from Hawkers Market, Chef Juno Kim and Chef David Mendes, along with other surprises.

“We are opening up the Dim Sum cart to all our Hawkers, to do one off creative crazy dishes that will only be available on the cart adding to the Hawkers hustle and bustle,” said Chris Jerome, Director of Hawkers Market.

Hawkers Market is Vancouver’s underground social food market, currently held in a sprawling 10,000 square foot warehouse on Broadway and Kingsway. Long table dining and performances by Claire Mortifee and DJ Cito will be running all night long starting at 6 p.m.

Tickets for Saturday’s event are on sale for $10 at, which supports Vancouver’s Local food economy and entrepreneurs.

An initiative for new food businesses to have a launchpad, your tickets go a long way to helping to keep this market established and operating in Vancouver.
