Become a vendor

IMG_2366We are a producer-direct market whose vendors take pride in providing a unique, high-quality product that is grown, raised, harvested, gathered or produced locally for our community. Our vendors and customers alike often remark on the cozy, neighborhood feel of our growing market. On market day, there is a palpable energy between shoppers, vendors, market staff and volunteers. This enjoyment of the market experience is why we love Montavilla Farmers Market.

MFM evaluates a vendor product/producer on the following characteristics when determining acceptance:

    • locally grown and/or processed ingredients
    • 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 genetically modified-containing ingredients
    • no use of growth hormone
    • returning vendors that are in good standing with the organization

All applicants must read the 2016 MFM Vendor Handbook before applying. Please review it thoroughly and use its checklist as guide for submitting a complete application -- which could include the addition of a secondary product application, an ingredient sourcing form, and scheduling a product jury, depending on the type of vendor.

The vendor handbook is where you'll find details about the types of businesses that may vend at MFM, fees and payments plans, accepting tokens and Double Up Food Bucks, plus with all on-site logistics for market day. Vendors and their on-site market staff are expected to have working knowledge of the policies and expectations contained within the handbook.

The Priority Application Period runs from January 5th – January 20th, 2016. Applicants applying during this time will be notified of their status by February 3rd, 2016. After that time, the application will re-open on February 24th, 2016 and vendor applicants will be contacted as space and category become available.
