Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee you a space at the market. All vendor applications are reviewed and carefully considered. After review, applicants will be notified by phone or email as to the status of their application within two weeks. All accepted vendors are required to provide a short bio about their farm and pictures or a short video showcasing unique elements of their farm. Please note the required supplemental documents for each vendor type and review the provided checklist at the end of the application as incomplete applications will not be considered.
Market hours are Saturdays from 9am-12pm, December through March (closed December 29, 2018). The market is located inside the main lobby of the Carbondale Community High School (entrance off of Walnut Street). Set up for market begins at 7:45am and take down must be completed by 1pm. No sales are allowed prior to the official start of the market. Vendors are not allowed to leave market early, unless previously approved by the market manager. Check out our market FAQs and policies for more information.
A few things to note: It is the law that vendors report and submit sales tax for products sold at the market. CCFM does not collect sales tax. Raw foods are taxed at 1%, and processed foods and non-food goods are currently taxed at 8.75% and taxes are payable to the Illinois Department of Revenue. Additionally, all vendors must provide proof of liability insurance prior to vending at the market. The market’s use of facilities contract with CCHS requires our market provide liability insurance. Please contact us with questions or concerns about sales tax or insurance requirements.
Thanks again for your interest in the Carbondale Community Farmers Market, and we look forward to receiving your application. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
