Yes. We have a limited number of power stalls at the market, but we will do our best to accommodate you. The additional charge per week is $8.

Categories: Payment, Vendors

Yes. Each vendor is required to submit their own vendor application form and first be approved to sell at the market. Both vendors must be members of the market to receive the member prices on stalls. Only one of the joint vendors are required to book the stall, and add a note in the comment box of the booking form. Both vendors must be present at the booth during market hours.

Categories: Products, Vendors

Stalls are to remain assembled until the official closing, regardless of weather, turnout or being sold out. Vendors, who have sold out prior to the end, may place a sign saying, “sold out” in their stall if they choose to leave their stall. Exceptions to this rule may be requested in writing and may be approved in extenuating circumstances only.

At the indoor market, the stall fee includes one table and two chairs set up. All you’ll need is a table covering and your products!

At the outdoor market, the stall fee is just for a spot of gravel. The Farmers’ Markets rents tables for $8/week, and canopies with weights for $10/week (or both for $15). You can book equipment when you book your stall for the week.

All vendors are required to bring four 20-pound weights for each leg of their canopy. A weight rental fee will be charged $5/week to vendors who do not have adequate weights.

Categories: Payment, Vendors

Yes! All vendors are first required to submit a vendor application form and be approved before booking any dates (allow up to two weeks for this). After approval to join the market, vendors can book their market dates online. Payment via PayPal on our Book Market Date Form is our preferred option.

Categories: Payment, Vendors

Our preferred method is for vendors to book online and checkout with PayPal. We also allow vendors to pay on the day they attend the market. No-shows at the market will be required to pay for any missed market.

Vendors booking for a full season receive a 10% discount on their stall fees.

Categories: Payment, Vendors

Vendors who book and pay for a whole season are given first choice for stall location and guaranteed the same spot week to week. A limited number of stalls are accessed with power and must be pre-arranged with the market manager. Drop-in vendors are assigned stalls by the market manager. Stall locations are determined by a variety of factors including: mix of adjacent vendor products, customer traffic flow, specific requirements for equipment, and number of times a vendor has attended the market.

Non-profit organizations are eligible for one free booth per season based on availability (i.e., Spring, Summer and Fall). Additional markets are booked at regular vendor prices. Canopy & table rentals still apply if needed.

Categories: Products, Vendors

Email the market as soon as you know. Cancelations made more than 72 hours in advance will have the stall fee put forward to a new date, or refunded (less a 15% admin fee). Late cancellations or no-show vendors will be charged the stall fee for the missed market.
