If you are a returning vendor, are there any *new* products you plan to sell? Please note, you will be asked to jury any new products. Please list all potential new products in the space below. Leave blank if you are a new vendor.
If you are applying to be a reserved site (every Saturday) vendor for the full season OR the first or second half, you will need to pay a booth fee and reserve your spot. Please review the following options, and choose which size booth space you would like. For full season vendors, you will have the option to pay in two installments (site day April 20th and July 28th). Half season vendor fees will be prorated.
*
For returning vendors, would you like to be in the same exact spot as last season (same size and location)? Use the "other" option to write down any siting requests. Site selection is determined by seniority and category and will occur on site day. If you are a returning vendor and wish to change your booth location, you will be placed in this siting pool and your site will also be determined on site day (April 20, 2024).
Clear selection
Please write a short 1-3 sentence description of your farm/business in third person that will be used for our website and advertising. This can be a simple description of location and products or more detailed if you wish (which makes for much better marketing material!)
Example: "Vermont Farm is a diversified vegetable farm located in Brattleboro and founded by Sarah Flannel in 2013. Sarah specializes in heirloom tomatoes, and loves to talk to market-goers about different varieties and growing techniques. Find her booth on the west side of the market each Saturday for some of the most unique and flavorful tomatoes you'll find in this area!"

For reserved site vendors, there are two types of membership: individual and group. If you're new and not sure which one to choose, please email us at farmersmarket05301@gmail.com and we'll talk you through it.
*
Required
I understand that I need to mail a check with my membership fee to po box 1057, Brattleboro, Vermont 05302 before my application will be considered. I also understand that if I am not accepted as a vendor, this  will be refunded in full.
*
Required
I understand that if I am a reserved site vendor, I am required to complete 10 or 15 hours of work depending on my membership type, and I will mail a check that *is not dated* for $200 due by April 20th 2024 as a deposit. If work hours are completed by November, this check will be voided and shredded.
*
I understand that if I plan on constructing a seasonal booth (instead of using a pop-up tent) I am required to mail a booth site deposit check for $100 due by April 20th that is *undated*. If my booth is properly removed by November, this check will be voided and shredded.
*
I understand that to vend in any capacity with the market, I must have liability insurance *with BAFM listed as an additional insured.* I understand that if emailing insurance, I will send an email to farmersmarket05301@gmail.com with the subject line "insurance" and include the file. Mailing it to the po box is another option, and must be sent by April 20th, 2024.
*
I have reviewed the market rules packet, and have familiarized myself with the jury process below:

● All new applicants and all daily vendors are required to have their products juried. Returning reserved site vendors with new craft, prepared food or value-added products must have them juried. 

● After your application is reviewed, you will receive a follow-up email from the BAFM manager to discuss the next steps towards the jury process and market membership. 

● The BAFM jury committee meets and reviews new products according to our jury criteria (listed below). 

● The committee makes recommendations to the BAFM Board based on the overall needs of the market each year. 

● For the jury, you need to bring a small sampling of the products you expect to vend at market. Please include any information that addresses the jury criteria such as how your product is made, who makes it, where it is made, the ingredients/materials used in its production
