198th DTES Street Market at Pigeon Park in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES) on Sun Mar 23, 2014

198th DTES Street Market and 12th Street Market of 2014

Roland Clarke, Coordinator of the DTES Street Market says:

This was great weather all day, and the number of vendors reflected this… over 200 counted at noon.

We had a number of incidents during the day. One man was passed out and possibly overdosed, ambulance was called and he was fine in the end.

A great sign of the summer, the 50/50 raffle was a near record.

We had two special guests at the market – Maggie Geiser and Carolyn Lair.

Also, for the first time, we brought out the gas pressure washer at the end of the day and cleaned the park before the garbage truck came. The park was completely free of vendors at 7pm.
