Vendors of crafts and other non-food items are welcome to apply if these products are made using locally-grown or raised products or are related to agriculture (for example, products made with local goat milk, herbs/flowers, beeswax, honey, wool, etc.). If you need assistance connecting to locally-grown/raised products, let us know!
Can I sell my baked goods at the market?
Please know that we receive many, many applications from potential vendors wishing to sell baked goods at the market. Top priority will be given to those who consistently use significant amounts of local ingredients in their baked goods. Also, please note that the particular type of baked goods you wish to sell will need to be approved by Environmental Health Services (see below for more information).
