March 30, 2020 UPDATE: UPDATE: We have implemented a strategy to promote a safer market environment for staff and Quest clients and, as such, all markets will close one hour each day at the end of day to allow staff to thoroughly clean and sanitize the markets. With this in mind, hours of market operations are as follows:
2020 Dundas
Monday, Thursday and Friday: 9:00- 3:15 pm
Tuesday and Wednesday: 9:00- 1:00pm
Saturday: Closed 611 Hastings:
Monday to Friday: 9:00am – 3:15pm
Saturday: 9:00am – 3:15p.m.
Monday – Friday: 9:00am – 3:15pm
Saturday: Closed
Monday: 9:00a – 3:15pm
Tuesday – Friday: 9:00am – 5:15pm
Saturday: 9:00am – 3:15pm

North Vancouver:
Monday – Friday: 9:00am – 3:15pm
Saturday: 9:00am – 3:15pm We have also, effective immediately, implemented the temporary banning of client reusable bags. We will be reverting to the use of plastic bags and Quest will not charge for market supplied bags. As we work hard to maintain social distancing for our clients and staff, effective immediately we have implemented the number of clients in our market at any given time to 5 people. We ask for patience from our clients as we try and promote a safer environment for all. We are also encouraging that for those of you who are more able bodied and not a high-risk to consider doing your shopping an hour AFTER we open our markets. We will not be enforcing this but we do encourage our elderly clients and those with pre-existing health conditions to arrive at opening and have the first hour to shop. Our markets are thoroughly cleaned each night after close and shopping upon our morning opening allows those most at risk a safer time to shop. Thank you to our staff and clients for their understanding and patience through this very challenging time.
