2018 Vendor Information

Posted: February 18th, 2016

Interested in becoming a vendor at the Tofino Market? Click on the "Vendors" tab (top right) 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.

The Market runs Saturdays from May 19th - October 6th, 2018

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 and are limited. 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.

PLEASE NOTE our Parking Guidelines: Vendors may not park or drive on the Village Green. Vendors may load in/out from the posted 15 minute loading zone, or the entrance/path adjacent to the skatepark - vehicles must drive in and back out, no U-turns permitted. During market hours, vendors must follow all posted time limits for parking, and are asked to park their vehicles outside of the immediate market area (as close to the school as possible) to leave parking access for customers. Do not use any surrounding business parking spots or you may be ticketed/towed.

Contact the Market Coordinator with any additional questions at We look forward to welcoming new and returning vendors this season!
