Tofino Market Vibes

Posted: May 7th, 2019

The Tofino Market is a small non-profit organization that coordinates a collection of West Coast artisan vendors to create a festive marketplace environment that serves as a hub for the local community and a unique opportunity for visitors to experience the eclectic culture of Tofino.

The Tofino Market runs every Saturday from 10am-2pm on the Tofino Village Green from May Long Weekend through Thanksgiving. You can enjoy unique hand-crafted artisan wares and up-cycled creations from up to 50 vendors representing Tofino, Ucluelet and the surrounding First Nations communities. There's live music on the gazebo stage and a free Arts & Crafts Tent for kids in the summer months. The Market also features local First Nations carving, cedar weaving and beading demonstrations and workshops throughout the season. And don't forget to load up on fresh produce from Tofino Community Food Initiative, fill up on great eats from Tofino Acai and El Chicos Taco, grab a sweet treat from Chocolate Tofino or sip a cool lemonade made by one of the local kids.

The Tofino Market is the perfect place to experience the creative vibe of Tofino, where people join together to connect with artists, handmade treasures, local eats, free-flowing music and community.

See you on Saturday!
