191st DTES Street Market at Pigeon Park in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) on Sun Feb 2, 2014

191st DTES Street Market and 5 th Street Market of 2014

Roland Clarke, Coordinator of the DTES Street Market says:

It was great weather again this Sunday.

 

No rain, and lots of sun.

 

 

Despite the cold weather, we had over 150 vendors at the park at noon, and we sold out of coffee and hot chocolate by 1pm. This might be a record. We make over 250 cups (6oz) of hot beverages every morning and we are now in need of another thermos and possibly an additional volunteer just to sell coffee and pop all day. These are the problems that success brings, so they are not so bad, as every small business owner would know.

 

 

It was Chinese New Year, and tons of people were out on the street at the parade. Welcome, Year of the Wood Horse.

 

 

The Super Bowl was on in the afternoon, and this made the market peter out at just about the right time (3pm or so) and allowed easy clean up. Seahawks pummelled the Broncos, so all was well.
