BMI Farmers' Market Community Interest Vendor Application
Thank you for your interest in the Baltimore Museum of Industry Farmers’ Market! The BMI Farmers’ Market runs from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Saturdays from May through November (closed on October 19). Over twenty vendors come each week to offer high-quality, regional products ranging from produce to preserves to pork rinds. Vendors at our market must grow or create their own products within 150 miles of the museum, nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit of our region. The market takes place in the outdoor pavilion and parking lot of the museum, located along the waterfront. In 2018, the BMI Farmers’ Market attracted an average of 300 visitors per week.

Local nonprofit organizations are invited to attend one week at no charge as a Community Interest Vendor. This is a terrific opportunity to raise awareness of your work to a variety of individuals. You may hand out literature, offer kids’ activities, and/or provide some other type of demonstration. Community Interest Vendors are selected based on their relation to the museum's mission. Acceptance is at the discretion of market staff.

Details:
• Organizations are responsible for their own setup and equipment. You must supply your own tables, chairs, power cords, etc. You should bring a sign indicating the name and location of your organization.
• A 13x13’ space is available in the parking lot, where a tent is strongly recommended (in rain or shine). Note that it can be windy on the waterfront, so plan ways to weigh down your equipment.
• For safety, all vehicles must be in place prior to the start of the market at 9:00 AM and may not leave the market area before 1:00 PM.
• Vendors are solely responsible for the security of their property. We strongly encourage you to plan ahead for how you will secure your valuables during set up or closing, throughout the day, and when you need to step away from your market space. Market staff cannot hold money, watch product, or otherwise assist with this. In the event of loss or damage, we will require a BMI Incident Report be filed with market staff and we encourage you to contact the Baltimore City Police Department if appropriate.
• Community interest vendors are expected to interact with shoppers from behind their table or within their tent. Approaching shoppers while they are at other stands or in the pavilion is strongly discouraged.
• There will be one market staff person on duty during vendors’ hours (8:00 AM to 2:00 PM).
