Social Venture Marketplace Tours

  • Triangle Square, Granville Island 1669 Johnston Street Vancouver, BC, V6H 3R9 Canada (map)

The Groundswell Community Marketplace is a new, different kind of market in Vancouver, and we invite you to come on down to Granville Island and see how we are shaking things up in this innovative landscape.

Tours take place each Tuesday at the Groundswell Community Marketplace on Granville Island at:
12:30 & 3:00 pm

RSVP here

Join us on a tour and you'll discover the story of a new economy and a variety of big hearted vendors who have three things in common:

First, they are all values based businesses, meaning they are making positive social and environmental impact with the life cycle of their products and services.

Second, they are all in this together: the market has been planned, designed, and run by a collective of vendors, including alumni from the Groundswell Social Venture Incubator program and others who have joined our community. 

Finally, all the vendors are very early on in their business development.  They want to connect with the you and learn how to make the solutions their businesses provide more impactful, and how to make their livelihood more sustainable.  

Participate and you could shape the future of the new economy, or be someone's first customer as they strive to do meaningful work that they love!  Our goal is to create a more collaborative, eclectic local economy in Vancouver where people come before profit, and where people work together for the common good. 

See you there!  The Groundswell Community Marketplace is happening every Tuesday this summer from 11 am - 4 pm in Triangle Square, Granville Island (between the Public Market and the Net Loft).  More info:

Social Venture Tours run each week at 12:30 and 3 pm.
