Make, Bake or Grow

The Esquimalt Farmers Market was born as an idea in 2014 and launched in May 2015. EFM exists to provide a marketplace that serves as a community gathering point for relationship-building, promotion of and access to our local food system, and equity-based environmental and economic sustainability in Esquimalt and beyond.

Make, Bake, or Grow

Vendors must abide by make, bake, or grow BC Association of Farmers Markets (BCAFM) policies. EFM supports local growers and producers and those who engage in environmentally sound, farming practices. EFM encourages backyard farmers to help nourish their community with their quality products.


EFM supports and promotes a sustainable food system featuring locally grown and produced items. With the understanding that sustainability is inextricable from broader social structures, our goal to foster environmental and economic sustainability is informed by an ongoing commitment to build just and equitable access to the marketplace and food security in our community.

Build Community

EFM goes beyond stimulating the economy and neighbourhood by supporting access to and growth of our local food system. EFM believes in building connections that create a sense of community through partnerships, collaborations, and relationship building.
