Tofino Market Opening Day Postponed (for now)

Posted: May 11th, 2020

Hello Valued Vendors, Sponsors, Musicians and Attendees of the Tofino Public Market,

We sincerely wish we could be welcoming you to a beautiful bustling Tofino Public Market this coming Saturday! We have so many talented, hard-working and unique local makers on the roster for this year's Market. However, due to the global situation around Covid 19 and our commitment to protect our community by honouring the Provincial and District limitations in place, we will not be opening the Tofino Market on May 16th as scheduled. At this time we have decided to wait and see how the country and province and our towns proceed with moving forward in the next weeks and months. It is our hope to still be able to support local makers and the community by hosting some version of the Tofino Market, but there is a very high likelihood that it will look very different this year.

At this time we welcome your feedback, thoughts and ideas as we collectively look to the good of our local communities as well as our local artisans. The Tofino Public Market Board of Directors and staff, together with the District of Tofino and Island Health, are working towards possibilities, alternatives and best practices during these ever-changing circumstances. Please be patient with us as we proceed.

As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. We can most easily be reached by email to I hope that each and every one of you are holding onto peace and hope during these strange days.

Many Thanks for your patience and understanding,

Roslyn Newman, Market Coordinator
Tofino Public Market Society
