Special Shows Application
Any vendor who wishes to apply for a space in the Vermont Farmers Market special shows must register as member and pay the annual dues ($25). Membership does NOT guarantee you a space.
To be a vendor
1. You must be located in Vermont or within 30 miles of the borders of Vermont.
2. You must be an active producer growing/raising/picking/preparing/creating or baking your own products.
If you are an agricultural vendor, you must produce at least 80% of what you sell. You can acquire up to 20% of what you sell from another producer within the same area. You also must tell the market manager if you do this.
Membership registration is ongoing throughout the membership year. A membership year runs from May 1st to April 30th of the following year. Becoming a member allows you to participate in any markets or shows that begin within that year.
Vendors must read and agree to abide by the market and/or special show rules and regulations. An updated version of these rules and regulations will be sent to you with your notice that you have been awarded a market space. Acceptance of that space will be acceptance of this contract.
RETURNING VENDORS: Deadline for your form is June 1. Please send in your form with payments for shows you have done in the past (your spot is guaranteed for those). Do NOT send payment for any new shows you are signing up for, as your spot is not guaranteed.
WINTER/SUMMER MARKET VENDORS: If you are in good standing and new to special shows, deadline for your form is August 1. Do NOT send payment at this time.
NEW VENDORS: Deadline for your form is September 1. Do not send payment at this time. Please include a few photos of your work with this form, if we have not seen it before.
If you are a signing up for a show for the first time, we will contact you if there is space available. At this point your money will be due. If you request a show that has filled up we will place you on our waiting list. We start a new list every year.
