Policies: The Haile Farmers Market is owned and operated by Community Green Markets. Because we are a “farmers market,” our policy is to give priority to Farm Vendors. Applications are accepted on a case by case basis each year by the Board of Representatives.
In order to vend at the Haile Farmers Market, you must follow the Haile Farmers Market's "Rules & Regulations."The following are some of our most important rules: • All new vendors have a four week trial period prior to final approval (annual fee due upon final approval). • You must grow or create your own product. BROKERING IS PROHIBITED. • Vendors must meet the Haile Market's specific definitions and conditions for their trade as adopted in the Haile Farmers Market's "Rules & Regulations," as well as any additional application conditions. • Farm vendors must be inspected prior to vending at market and seasonally, thereafter. • Plant vendors must attach a copy of DPI inspection. Organic farms must attach a copy of certification. Only certified organic farmers can label produce “organic.” • All food vendors must hand deliver or email the Market Manager (email@example.com) a copy of liability insurance and if applicable, proof of certified kitchen. • All food vendors must meet all required State laws regarding food preparation and sale. • Food vendors may not sell products "for pet food consumption." • All food vendors must wear gloves when handling non-prepackaged food. • Farmers labeling meat, cheese, eggs, or dairy "for pet food consumption" must meet all local, state, and federal laws including inspections and labeling. • You must follow the safety, noise and courtesy rules. These are “no second chance” rules. Vendors who do not follow these rules will not be allowed to vend at the market. • Booths are 10‘W x 10’D x 10’H. Only vendors in designated back-in/extended booth spaces may expand beyond these boundaries. • Standard 10' x 10' canopies are required for all vendors, unless alternate booth designs are pre-approved by the Market Manager or Designee. • You cannot vend before 8:30 am unless you have approved breakfast items or wish to sell to other market vendors. • You cannot bring your vehicle into the market area after 8:00 am or before 12:00 pm. • You must enter, exit and park your vehicle as specified by the Market Manager or Designee. You must position your vehicle when unloading so it does not block another booth space or back-in parking space. You must unload immediately on arrival and move your vehicle as soon as unload is complete. You cannot set up your booth display until after you move your vehicle. (This includes your canopy, unless it is raining.) • If you move the cones upon entering the market, you MUST move them back. • You may not sell any products not listed on your application without Market Manager approval. • You must clearly post all of your prices. • You must notify the Market Manager of any absences. • You must give the Market Manager one week's notice when returning to the market after an extended break. • Irregular attendance at the market and/or not notifying the Market Manager of absences will disqualify you from having a permanent spot at the market.
