Vendor Inquiry

Thank you for expressing interest in joining us this coming season at Port Moody and Coquitlam Farmers Markets.  The Grow Local Society supports home-based, small scale, producers and entrepreneurs and we look forward to learning more about you and what you offer.
We would like to invite you to take the first step in the process of becoming a vendor with us. We invite you to read our requirements and frequently asked questions to first ensure you qualify. Once you've confirmed you qualify please fill in and submit this form so we can arrange your product(s) to be juried by our team.

Products Examples:
Artist, Crafter, Pet Products, Horticulture & Plants please bring a few items from your collection for us to view (your items will be returned the same day OR at the following market)

Prepared Foods & Beverage please bring a sample of your product(s) for us to consume and try. Please bring it in the package you intend to sell the item in OR bring a proof of the packaging you plan to purchase.

Spa/Skincare please bring a sample of your product(s). If possible (skincare) please bring several small containers as samples.

Farmers we do not require you to bring items to jury however we do require a tour of your farm. Please reach out and make arrangements.

To have your product juried and considered for application it costs $45.

If you are accepted as a vendor your application fee will go towards your $45 Seasonal Vendor Registration Fee

If you are not accepted your $45 application fee is non refundable

Our markets have a strict policy that all items must be made, baked, grown, raised, caught or foraged by our vendors. If you are re-selling items, use a co-packer, or import products you do not qualify for our markets. If you are a crafter and are not changing your product enough from its original form ie. placing a vinyl sticker onto a store bought sweater, you do not qualify.

Craft items criteria: Unique & Original. Starting product significantly altered and enhanced by artist. Preference given to items that contain raw material from local sources and/or have agriculture, horticulture or food themes.

What are the fees for a booth?
The cost vary based on what size booth you book but a small  standard 10x10 space costs:
$50 + tax
