- Tofino's Public MarketMay 21, 2016 - Oct 8, 2016
The Tofino Public Market Society presents Saturday Markets, May to September on Tofino's Village Green.
“Make it, Bake it, Grow it, Gather it” is the market’s principle. Vendors of all ages include local artisans, home bakers, market gardeners, and wild food harvesters. Organic and B.C. grown produce is most welcome. Non-profit organizations are also encouraged to participate.
Both locals and tourists alike enjoy visiting the market, held on the Tofino Village Green, at 3rd and Campbell, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Music, food, and surprises add to the fun, festive atmosphere.
The Markets provide a forum for Tofino artisans, artists and performers (and visiting vendors from across Vancouver Island and beyond) to showcase their wares.
In a festive atmosphere with fresh food, live music and other activities, visitors and locals can shop and peruse from vendor to vendor.
Come down to the park and check out what people are making, baking, growing and gathering.
