Esquimalt Farmers Market

Esquimalt Farmers Market exists to provide a marketplace which serves as a community gathering point that builds relationships, encourages healthy, local living, environmental and economic sustainability.

About

The Esquimalt Farmers Market was born as an idea in 2014 and launched our first season in May 2015. Our market is here to serve the community of Esquimalt and surrounding areas, and is dedicated to promoting healthy and local living, building relationships and encouraging environmental and economic sustainability in Esquimalt.

Make, Bake, or Grow

We support local growers and producers and those who engage in environmentally sound, farming practices. We encourage backyard farmers to help nourish their community with their quality products. 

Build Community

We believe in building connections that create a sense of community through partnerships, collaborations, and building relationships with the community, and pushing forward with a movement promoting healthy eating, living & relationships.   

Support Opportunity

Farmer’s Markets go beyond providing healthy food from local suppliers – they stimulate the economy and the neighbourhood. This positive influence adds value to the lives of the existing community members as well as encourages visits from people who love the concept of fresh + local!

Get Involved!

Want to help your community market thrive? Get involved in one of three ways below!

In 2016, we will have a dog area, run by the SPCA, where your pooch can stay while you shop! The price of this area will be set by the SPCA and they will maintain the dog sign in sheet. Dogs will only be allowed in the doggy daycare as space allows.

Our Vendors

Our diverse vendors create a thriving and exciting market.

* EFM will also be there with Market Bucks (to buy with a credit card for use immediately, like a super handy cashpoint!) and Market totes as well as other goodies for you 🙂
* Parking is available in the area but if at all possible, please walk, bus or cycle (it is Bike to Work Victoria week!) to the Market so more Market lovers can enjoy!
* This year we have a new Doggy Daycare area provided by BC SPCA Victoria Branch so for $5/hr you can leave your pup with them, to the side of the Market grounds. No pets, however cute, are allowed in the Market grounds and food court area please.
