How Do I Become a Vendor?
Please fill out the vendor application at the top right of the page and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org
What Does It Cost To Be A Vendor At The Market?
The cost to be a vendor at the farmers market is $30 a week, with an additional $5 fee per week to use electricity. In addition to the weekly cost, you will need to carry general liability insurance with the OBA listed as additional insured. These costs vary significantly based on your product and the insurance company you use.
Am I Eligible To Be A Vendor At The Market?
Our market by-laws allow us to accept vendors who provide food products (raw or prepared), plants, gourmet or specialty items, limited bath products such as handmade soaps or scrubs, and limited crafts in the form of handmade home or garden decorative accessories.
My Application Was Accepted - How Long Do I Have To Wait To Start?
The farmers market usually has a waiting list to attend the market. We have a wonderful group of vendors and space is not always available. It is impossible to predict when a vendor will need to leave the market, thereby opening a space up for a new vendor. In addition, vendors who can not attend the market for a known period of time are able to pay to continue to reserve their space in their absence. Sometimes new vendors get lucky and apply just when a space becomes available and they are able to start immediately, other times vendors have to wait several months for a space to open up.
Can My Non-Profit Rent A Booth?
No ... and yes. The market does not rent full time vendor spaces to non-profit organizations who fall outside of our vendor by-laws for eligible products. However, we do give space away for FREE to any legal non-profit organization who would like to attend. There is one free non-profit space available at every market, and an organization may request up to four dates per calendar year on a first come first served basis.
What Am I Responsible For Bringing To The Market?
Everything. You will need to provide your own tent, tables, chairs, tent anchors for high winds, extension cords, etc. The market leases the space, and provides access to electricity, but aside from that you will need to provide everything you need to operate your business at the market.
