January 25th Vendors TBA!

The market has now moved INDOORS to Esquimalt Rec Centre until May!
January vendors will be announced here soon, as applications are still currently in progress. Watch this space for updates!
Our lovely vendors, some familiar, some NEW, will be bringing a multitude of fresh, locally grown produce, baked goods, and other tasty foods! Remember your reusable shopping bags and water bottles 🙂


EFM will have Market Bucks ready to buy with credit card for immediate use, should you be short of cash.
See you there, with reusable shopping bags at the ready!

Note: although the outdoor season has come to an end ?, the INDOOR season is in full swing?! See the dates here:

Waste-free note: EFM aims to be a waste-free market. You can help us by being a waste-free shopper, by bringing e.g. your own shopping bags, water bottles and plates and cutlery for eating from the food trucks! More about this at the market.

Also, we have a weekly donation bin for food from home or food you bought at the Market that goes to the Esquimalt Neighbourhood House, Rainbow Kitchen & Senior Program through the Esquimalt Rec. They would also be happy to accept non-food donations

EFM will of course also be there and will have Market Bucks for purchase and immediate use (ideal if you run out of cash, AND they would also make a great gift! Also, EFM branded items including tshirts, tank tops, baby onesies and children’s tshirts, cotton and hemp shopping totes and other goodies!

Other Important Information!

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, tank tops, and tshirts as well as other goodies for you 🙂

Parking is available in the area but if at all possible, please walk, bus or cycle to the Market so more Market lovers can enjoy!

EFM are striving towards being a waste-free market and so please help by bringing reusable bags and containers where possible.
