VCF Marketplace

Weekend Marketplace

About the Marketplace

The Ventura College Foundation’s Weekend Marketplace began as a small effort in 1985 by the VC Foundation’s board of directors to raise additional support for the Foundation and funds for Ventura College students and programs.  The Weekend Marketplace has grown into an established community event attracting vendors and patrons from throughout the state and will typically draw approximately 2,000 to 5,000 shoppers each weekend.

In the past decade, the VC Foundation Weekend Marketplace has doubled the revenue it generates from space rentals to support the Foundation, helping cover the costs of staff, operations, and a portion of the Foundation's core programs: scholarships and textbook lending support.

Don’t call it a flea market - it’s so much more! Enjoy a day of pleasant outdoor shopping with family and friends for great bargains! The proceeds from vendor fees at the Marketplace help fund the Foundation to benefit the College and its students.

For our customer's safety, we encourage seniors, individuals with compromised immune systems, or persons with mobility issues to visit the Marketplace on Saturdays or Sundays between 8:00 a.m. (opening) and 9:00 a.m. when fewer guests are in attendance.
