The Midtown Farmers Market issues Red EBT tokens and market bucks to people with EBT cards. These tokens can only be used on fresh produce or prepared food. Ready to eat food cannot accept red EBT tokens. If you are a vendor who can accept EBT tokens and market bucks, additional information will be sent to you to explain the function of these tokens and the reimbursement schedule. Press Yes to acknowledge.
The Midtown Farmers Market does not issue green "cash" tokens and the nearest ATM is located 1/4 mile from the market site. Trends in recent years show that fewer and fewer people carry cash. We strongly encourage you to take credit cards and/or use an e-payment app like Venmo, CashApp, or Paypal. If you require assistance setting up these apps or figuring out how to take cards, market managers can offer you individual assistance on a case by case basis. Press Yes to acknowledge.
For the duration of the pandemic, masks are required for everyone. You may eat and drink at your booth but your mask must always be up over your nose and mouth while interacting with customers. We have other COVID-19 precautions in place that we explain at a later time. All these precautions must be followed by you and any staff, friends, or family members that vend with you at your booth. Press Yes to acknowledge.
If you are unable to attend a market that you sign up for, you must let market staff know within 48 hours of the beginning of the market. (Some exceptions apply at the discretion of the managers) If you do not inform staff before the 48 hours before the market, you will be subject to a no-show fee equivalent to the cost of your daily stall fee. If you no call-no show (You do not tell market staff at any time you will not be at a market you signed up for) you will be placed on review by market managers. At this time, the managers can decide to remove you from the market for the rest of the season with no refund. Press Yes to acknowledge.
Racism, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, and misogyny of any kind is not tolerated by the Midtown Farmers Market. If a shopper, staff member, or fellow vendor reports you for any of the above actions, you will be subject to a one on one meeting or phone call with the Manager. If multiple incidents occur, you will be placed on review and at that time, the managers can decide to remove you from the market for the rest of the season with no refund. Press Yes to acknowledge.
I agree to follow all of the above rules. I understand that if market staff observes or receives evidence of my failure to abide by this agreement and that failure results in my removal from the market, I will not be reimbursed for my season fees. I acknowledge that I have filled out this application with true information to the best of my knowledge, and any changes will be sent to market managers as soon as possible.
