Common Queries

Where can I park?

If you drive a vehicle to attend EFM, your best option is the large parking lot behind the Archie Browning Arena.  It is a 3-5 minute walk from Memorial Park in Esquimalt, and even closer if you are attending the market during the winter season at the Esquimalt Rec Centre.

For persons with mobility issues, there are accessible spots next to 1230 Esquimalt Rd, across the street from the Municipal Hall.   Map

What do we do with Waste?

EFM is currently a LOW WASTE market, with a long term goal of being a ZERO WASTE market.  We encourage visitors and vendors to bring and facilitate the use of reusable containers, and minimize or remove packaging wherever possible.

How do I get there?

The summer market happens at Memorial Park in Esquimalt.  There are numerous locatoins for locking up a bike, and city buses 15 and 26 stop at the entrance to the park.  You can use NextRide to plan your trip!

Of course!  We can't wait to hear from you.  Please go here and send us your feedback!

Can I bring my pet?

Registered service animals only, please.  Signs are posted around the market area.  Please leave your pet at home.

Please avoid tying your pet's leash to anything in the surrounding area.

If you are interested in volunteering your time to facilitate a pet-sitting service during market hours, please visit our Volunteer page.

How can I pay for my items?

Cash, Credit, Debit, e-transfer or Market Bucks! Most vendors accept credit or debit.  If a vendor is unable to accept payment by card, you can visit the EFM table and purchase Market Bucks with a credit or debit card. Learn about Market Bucks here.
