The Street Vendors Collective is a peer-managed, independent collective of vendors and peers from the Downtown Eastside community.

Based out of the Carnegie Community Centre, the pilot project offers vending opportunities to low-income artists, craftspeople, and entrepreneurs with experience in the informal economy.

This pilot project aims to create more accesible legal low-barrier economic opportunities for community members.
