Be a Vendor for the 2018-2019 Season

January 11, 2018 |  by  |  Blog, News  |  No Comments

Montavilla Farmers Market’s 2018 priority period deadline for accepting vendors is coming up on January 17th, 2018. (But the application reopens February 14th on a rolling basis where vendors will be accepted for the 2018-2019 season as space and category become available.)

We strive to provide a vibrant marketplace where our diverse community has access to fresh, high quality, local food. MFM evaluates a vendor product/producer on the following characteristics when determining acceptance:

  • products grown and harvested locally by the vendor
  • locally sourced ingredients (direct from grower/producer)
  • striving to use environmentally responsible and sustainable production methods
  • offerings based on availability within natural season of growth
  • artisan production and uniqueness of processor
  • minimal packaging with lowest impact materials
  • reduction/avoidance of GM-containing ingredients
  • no use of growth hormone
  • returning vendors that are in good standing with the organization
