Important Message

The Ventura College Foundation Market Place WILL BE CLOSED for Easter on Sunday, April 4th, 2021. We will be open regular hours (8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.) on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021.

We are excited that Ventura County received the great news that our region has moved to the State’s COVID Red Tier.

Unfortunately, at this time, the Weekend Marketplace will continue to operate the same as we did in the Purple Tier and will continue to follow all the Vendor & Customer Safety Protocols as outlined in our Marketplace COVID Operation Plan Information Packet (Download: English Version or Spanish Version).

We are all in this together and must continue moving forward so that we don’t revert back to the purple tier and instead continue making progress towards the next tier so that in time the Marketplace can increase our capacity and additional vendors can be welcomed back.

Ventura College Foundation

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.
