Dear Farmer's Market Participants:
The deadline for entries is Friday, August 10th. Acceptance letters will be sent on a rolling basis. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which they are received.
Please write three (3) separate checks made payable to the Downtown Ithaca Alliance. The non-refundable application fee for this show is $20. The booth fee is $125 for a 10X10 space and $250 for a 10x20 space. Finally, please send an additional $200 check for a clean-up deposit; this will not be deposited if your booth space is clean and free of trash after the festival. Booth and deposit fees will be shredded if your application is not accepted (unless you send a money order, which will be mailed back). If you apply and are accepted, you have until August 30th (or one week after your acceptance notification, if later) to notify email@example.com by email of your cancellation to receive a refund of your booth fee. If you cancel after this date, you will not receive a refund of your booth fee.
You are responsible for bringing your own tables and tent to the event. You must have your tent weighted down during the entire festival. Please contact the Downtown Ithaca Alliance office with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
**Farmers must cover the ground of their site with a tarp. If you are using propane or, electric, or butane it must be a fireproof treated tarp**
All farmers’ market participants must enter only products made entirely in New York State (no exceptions). To be a farmers' market participant you can be a brewery, winery, or cidery (with an offsite tasting permit), a farmer selling produce or other farm made product such as honey, a farm bakery or to-go food producer. If you have any questions about where you would fit please call the office before submitting the application. All farms who produce any beverages that contain alcohol need to send a Certificate of Liability Insurance listing the City of Ithaca as the second insured (address 108 E. Green Street Ithaca NY 14850). Your insurance company can fax it to 607-277-8691 at the DIA.
The Apple Harvest Festival footprint will be similar to the 2017 footprint; most farmers will be located on the Commons but we cannot guarantee this.You will receive your map, load-in instructions, and booth location at least ONE week prior to the event.
If you use PROPANE or BUTANE you will need an Ithaca Fire Department Temporary Permit and you must let the Downtown Ithaca Alliance know so we can place you on the Commons appropriately. If using propane, you will need to bring an approved fire extinguisher. Contact June Overslaugh at the Ithaca Fire Department to apply for a propane permit or with questions.
