How do I become a SFC Farmers' Market Vendor?

Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the SFC Farmers' Markets. We appreciate all applications to the market, but we are limited to the number of vendors we can have at each market. Therefore we strive to create a diverse market structure without compromising our current vendors. Here are the important things you should know:

  • Start by visiting SFC Farmers’ Markets. Look at the mix of vendors and determine whether you would be a good fit. You should consider how much competition is at the market, are you ready to attend one of our weekend markets or is a weekday pace a better fit for you.
  • Then please feel free to fill out an application. Market applications are accepted year round. An email will be sent confirming the application was properly submitted. Once the application has been submitted it will be listed as Pending, and will be reviewed within two weeks of receiving the $25 application fee. Click here to apply »

The Sustainable Food Center Farmers' Markets and Farm Direct Projects comply with all federal, state, and county regulations.

Upon review of the application by the Farmers’ Market Team the applicant will be notified of their status:

  • Approved – The application has met the minimum requirements to be a vendor and is approved as a vendor. They will need to submit a copy of additional forms and documents.
  • Hold – The application has met the minimum requirements to be a vendor, however at this time we cannot admit the vendor to the Market because we have too many vendors serving similar products.
  • Rejected – The application does not meet SFC Farmers’ Markets minimum requirements to be a vendor.

For returning vendors who are trying to renew their term or make an amendment to a previous application please RE-APPLY HERE.
