Vendor Application for Stittsville Market At The Barn - 2021 Season
Stittsville Market at the Barn is a small market featuring local farm fresh producers and artisans. The market is situated inside the log barn at 6154 Abbott St. East, next to the Village Square Park in Stittsville. Organized and run by Registered Holistic Nutritionist Mandy Faulkner and her family, the weekly market operates Thursdays 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Sundays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

We seek to provide local, sustainable, homemade and/or produced products to our community. We are always looking for more farmers to join our beautiful quaint market. We value supporting local farmers who use organic and holistic practices in farming.

Our regular season runs from early May to end of October. There may also be other opportunities for additional markets as well as Spring, Fall, and Holiday markets.

We will be doing our best to limit duplicate types of product/business but there may be overlaps and there is no guaranteed exclusivity.
