Produce Row

Welcome to the Vancouver Lexicon. Its purpose is to pin down the patois of the City of Vancouver by recording its toponyms, nicknames, slang terms, personalities, places, and other Van-centric things. Full A-Z here.

Produce Row | place, toponym | The stretch of Malkin Avenue facing Strathcona Park and RV Alley. It is so named on account of the dozen-plus wholesale produce companies that supply many of Vancouver’s groceries and restaurants with fresh fruits and vegetables every day.

Usage: “I wonder what will happen when the viaducts come down and Produce Row sees its traffic increased by a billion percent…”
