Hawkers Market returns for its largest and most exciting event ever on Saturday, May 30 2015, which will bring together more than 50 local food businesses, pop-up chefs, local artisans, independent craftspeople, art collectives and food trucks.
Hawker Fest, presented by Flook, will take place at the sprawling Rocky Mountaineer train station, just east of Main Street. The iconic Rocky Mountaineer train station will be bustling with dozens of vendors and thousands of attendees.
