Vendor Interest Form
Thank you for your interest in the Northside Farmers Market!
We have a three-fold mission that drives every decision the Market makes:
1 ) To support our urban community by increasing access to healthful and affordable foods;
2) To be a vibrant social and educational hub providing to our community the tools to discover and increase consumption of local foods;
3). To support our local food producers by working to create a viable business venue in which to sell their products.
Participation is determined by the Market Board of Directors, whose job is to provide a healthy, viable mix of new and current vendors, including experienced vendors with a proven record of consistent quality and variety. The goal is to create an economically successful and sustainable farmers market, while also providing increasing opportunities for new vendors to sell their products directly to customers.
Decisions are based on available space in the Market, the need for specific products, vendor’s fit with Market mission and demographics, and vendor’s performance history. Criteria for evaluating vendor performance will include: ability to follow Market policies and Market staff’s directions (e.g., communication, punctuality, clean-up, weights, signage, advance notification when canceling, etc), product quality, visual display, sales history, and record of no outstanding balances.
The goal of the Northside Farmers Market is to create a Market vendor mix with at least 50% farmers. Northside Farmers Market is also committed to supporting and helping incubate smaller start-up businesses and artisans when possible. Priority is given to returning vendors.
