Guidelines
FIVE CORNERS FARMERS’ MARKET
The Five Corners Farmers’ Market is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the connection between our community and local farmers and producers of fresh, healthy foods and related products. A weekly farmers’ market in downtown Essex Junction will provide convenient access to locally produced agricultural products, prepared foods, and crafts. In addition, the market and other scheduled events will help to support a revitalized Village downtown.

5CFM provides the market location, advertising, promotion and site insurance coverage. A market manager or designee will be at each market day to promote a pleasant, safe and successful market day for all vendors and customers. Market management has the responsibility and authority to enforce these rules.
Nonprofit Organization Participation Information and Guidelines
We are pleased to welcome local nonprofit organizations, community organizations and small neighborhood businesses to 5CFM. Nonprofit vendors must be a charity or other non-profit organization that serves a basic human need or provides educational information of human interest (i.e. health and safety). The Market is not a forum for political, religious or doctrinal debate. Inclusion at the market does not constitute 5CFM endorsement or support of the nonprofit organization.
All organizations wishing to participate in the market must submit a Nonprofit Organization Application. All applications will be reviewed by the Market Manager and nonprofit coordinator and if approved space will be scheduled on a first come first served basis…as available. Your organization must receive official confirmation of an approved date to attend that market. We will try to accommodate your needs and requests to the best of our ability.
Nonprofit organizations are NOT permitted to give away or sell items that compete with Market vendors such as food, drinks, produce, jewelry, and crafts. However, nonprofit benefit sale of tickets, merchandise, and memberships may be allowed with specific prior approval. Collecting financial donations requires a letter on official letterhead that verifies that you are authorized to collect donations for the 501(c)(3) organization.
If you are not able to attend a confirmed date, you must contact the Market Manager by the Monday of the week you are assigned or as soon as possible so that another organization can possibly attend. The Market is open rain, shine, or snow. 5cornersfarmersmarket@gmail.com
