Full Season versus Drop In

Full Season
If you select “Full Season” you are signing up and agreeing to participate in the entire season of the market. Attendance consistency is critical in attracting buying customers to the market. It is important that vendors make a commitment to attend the market at least 90% of their season or more.

Drop In
If you select “Drop In” on your vendor application you will be put on our list of vendors willing to fill an open space on an as needed basis.

Process: You may email dates you are available to attend a Market at any time. The market manager will reach out letting you know if that (those) dates work. The week prior to any market openings the market manager will reach out letting you know of availability for you to attend. You may accept or decline this offer. You will be asked to pay the drop-in fee (fee varies for markets) – this must be paid prior to your attending. At the end of your market day you will be required to pay 10% of your daily gross sales via Venmo.

FAQ

I’m interested in being a vendor at one of your Markets. What is the process?

All market applications must be filled out online.

If I have a 10×10 tent but need room on the sides of my booth for patrons to shop, am I considered oversized?

Yes, you are. Assume tents are shoulder to shoulder, if you need space on the sides please apply for a 10×20 or larger space.

I want to apply to be a vendor at your market, but the deadline has passed, can I still apply? Do you have space available?

We accept Farmer Market applications year-round. We look at applications on a monthly basis and accept new vendors based on space availability and need.

How do you choose your Farmers Market vendors?

The selection process takes into consideration many factors including:

  • local producer/grower
  • food/agriculture or kitchen oriented product
  • product quality
  • sourcing
  • growing practices
  • presentation
  • number of consecutive years at the market/number of absences last season
  • compliance
  • customer service
  • the right product mix to ensure a successful market for everyone.
  • past participation/attendance

I do not sell a product. Can I set up a booth at your market?

The focus of this market is on food and food-related items. Informational vendors are not accepted into the market.

Can I come to your markets and pass out flyers to promote my new business/non-profit organization/charity event?

We wish to provide market customers with a relaxing and enjoyable experience where they can stroll through the market and interact with the market vendors. NO solicitors or distribution/marketing of non-approved products are allowed at our markets. This includes signature gathering for petitions and voter sign-up.

I’ve seen booths set up at your markets for items that are not on your vendor list or you’ve said you don’t allow in the market. Can you explain?

In order to support the community, the merchants on the street and the Merchant/Neighborhood Associations, we allow brick and mortar stores on the market streets to set up booths and sell their goods at the market.

Do you close your markets during inclement weather?

Markets are open rain, snow or shine and all holidays. We will only cancel during EXTREME weather conditions. We ask that you check your email for weather updates.

I do not have any photos of my booth to upload for the application, what should I do?

Take some nice photos of your product(s).
