River Market is a culinary destination for everyday foodies. Located in the heart of New Westminster, our market offers over 70,000 square feet for you to shop, eat, play, and work all right next to the mighty Fraser River.
We’re celebrating the full circle of food in a more playful, passionate, and sustainable way. With a vision we’ve dubbed FOOD 360, you can look forward to: growing food in edible gardens at the Market, an independent grocery store focusing on local and organic foods, specialty food vendors, restaurants, and food festivals. The first floor of the Market is about food for your body and the second floor is about feeding your creativity. It’s a vibrant hub for learning and business.
Ever since 1892, New Westminster has had a bustling market along the riverfront. In the early days, farmers from all over the Valley came to the market on the Fraser River using paddlewheelers and small boats. In 1986, the Westminster Quay Public Market was built and opened its doors to a flow of activities. In 2008, the Westminster Quay Public Market was renamed River Market at Westminster Quay to celebrate the history of Fraser River, the growing communities of Fraser Valley, and the market’s revitalization.
