The Market is stoked to welcome the band Mapstone this Saturday from Noon-2 on the gazebo stage!

Singer /Songwriter Chris Mapstone has been playing the guitar and writing lyrics for 11 years. As a world traveller, Mapstone’s songs have been influenced by rich cultural and musical experiences, and his musical repertoire consists of playing the guitar, didgeridoo, percussion, harmonica, wooden flutes and singing. His lyrics reflect his passion and understanding for equality, freedom of speech, self reflection, relationships, and the environment. Mapstone performs heart roots music, spreading the vibrations of love, joy and abundance to all corners of the Earth.

2016 Vendor Information

Posted: February 18th, 2016

Interested in becoming a vendor at the Tofino Market? Click on the "Vendors" tab and you will find our Vendor Guidelines and Vendor Application form. Mail or scan your application in advance for pre-approval - approval to vend will be obtained once the Coordinator has reviewed your products.

Daily drop-in permits are $20 per day, and are issued on-site every Saturday (payable to the Market Coordinator). Drop-in spots are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Reserved spots are currently full for the season. The Market is not currently accepting new applications from vendors who also own/operate a storefront location for their products.

FOOD VENDORS need to obtain Island Health approval for food vending, all vendors are responsible for following the guidelines:

The Market does not provide anything other than a 10x10 space for each booth, and spots are first-come-first-served (with the exception of reserved spots that are marked). Set up is between 8am-10am - when you arrive please check in with the Coordinator to assign you a spot. We recommend a table and tent/awning due to the sun or sometimes inclement weather.

*A note on Parking: Unloading is permitted close to the Village Green, during set up. We then ask you to park up near the school so customers can use the preferred spots. Please do not use any surrounding business parking spots or you may be ticketed/towed.

Please contact Anne Weeks, Market Coordinator, with any additional questions at We look forward to welcoming new and returning vendors this season!
