Cancellation:
Greer Farmers Market is a “rain or shine” market; however, the Market may be cancelled due to severe/unsafe weather conditions that may pose a threat to the vendors or public. If the Market cancels, the vendors will be informed 24 hours prior to the market. The Market may close early on market days due to the above weather conditions.

Participants are required to have a 10’x10’ white canopy tent, and weights on the legs of the tent. Booth displays should not block the main walkway. All vendors must keep signage at their booth identifying themselves, or their business, and their location. All signage or pricing should be clear and legible. All signage and product sampling must be contained within the vendor’s booth space. Signage must not obstruct the view or interfere with neighboring vendor spaces or walkways. All trash and litter should be removed from the vendor’s space following breakdown.

Participants are expected to act considerately towards other vendors, market attendees, and market staff. Hawking is prohibited. Aggressive, inappropriate, or rude behavior will not be tolerated at the Market and will lead to the removal of said person from the Market.

Enforcement of Market Rules
Market staff members value our good relationship with vendors and make every effort to educate vendors about the Market guidelines before and during the season. Staff reserves the right to suspend or revoke the selling rights of any vendor who repeatedly disregards one or more of the rules as outlined in these guidelines.

If Market staff suspends or revokes a vendor's selling rights for any reason, the selling rights of all working at that booth - primary seller and additional sellers, whether it be family, friends, agents, employees, etc.- are likewise suspended or revoked.

The rules, policies, and guidelines are determined, and may be changed, by the Market staff with approval of the GFM Manager. Vendors will be notified of any significant changes and the date they become effective.

The Greer Farmers Market encourages feedback, both positive comments and constructive criticism, about all aspects of market management. Feedback may be sent the following ways:

By email: greerfarmersmarket@gmail.com
By mail: Greer Farmers Market, PO Box 1292, Greer SC 29652
