Want to be a vendor? Here are a couple things you need to know:
1-You must sell an agriculture or homemade food item! We are a farmer's market, not a craft fair. We do allow our vendors to add artisan craft items to the food items they are producing. We do not allow large quantities of resale produce, if you don't grown the majority of your produce, our market isn't for you. We believe in promoting LOCAL food and farmers.
2-If you are going to sell a product such as cheese, baked goods, jam or jellies, honey or any other product you make or package in the kitchen, you must have a Cottage Food License. This market is regulated by the department of agriculture and therefore we must follow their rules. Here is a link to the website with all the information.

3- We encourage more farmer's and garden grower's to bring out their produce to the market, we love having more vendors. Some vendors grow year-round now that we have a market to sell our produce at, so if you love to garden please contact us to reserve a booth space. There is a minimal fee to set up and we do have reserved spots, so don't get upset if you come set up in someone else spot and we move you!
4-Be consistent, you will be more successful if customers can count on you being there each week! We only close 2 weeks out of the year during December and January.
5-Have a sign and a story about what you do and who you are, expect lots of questions about how you grow your produce. There are picky buyers out there and they want chemical and pesticide free produce. BE HONEST, don't misrepresent your product.
6-Be friendly and respectful of other vendors. Avoid standing in front of someone else's booth talking for long periods of time, it scares off potential customers. Be mindful of the samples they provide, they are trying to get business buy sharing to customers, not feeding all th. Refer customers to the other booths that sell items that you do not! Lets all be successful and sustainable while promoting local and real food products.
7-Please read the entire application below and then call or email if you still have questions or doubts about what you can or can not bring to the market. Thanks- Heather Carter (435) 559-2791 Symbria Patterson (435) 865-6792
