Craftsbury Farmers’ Market Guidelines

  • All products sold will be made or grown by vendors, members of their immediate family or an employee of the farm. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis by the Steering Committee in order to have “essential,” locally produced products at the market.
  • Completed application and fee will be due on March 15th. Applicants will be notified of the market’s decision by April 1st. Late applications will be accepted but might not be considered in the first round. Late applicants will be notified within 2 weeks of receiving the application.
  • Vendors are responsible for obtaining any licenses and/or insurance needed for their products.
  • You will be required to report weekly sales totals/or yearly total to the market.
  • Vendors should arrive no later than 9:30am to set up, if you arrive after that time, you have forfeited any claim to your “preferred” space.
  • New vendors should check in with Kris Coville or the site manager upon arrival to be directed to an available spot for set up.
  • All vehicles will be moved away from parking areas to the north of the Common after unloading, in order to make parking available to shoppers. Vendors can remain parked in grass on the Academy side of the Common.
  • No driving or parking on the common.
  • Vendors may not bring their pets to market.
  • We request that all vendors be respectful of the market hours 10-1. If you run out of product, please leave your tent/table set up in place until the end of market. If you plan to leave the premises, consider leaving a nice “sold out” sign.
  • Each vendor will pay a $75 fee. Space fee will cover immediate family. Vendors trying out the market can choose to pay $25/market, up to three markets, at which point they will be paid up for the remaining season.
  • Vendors must attend a majority of markets before being allowed to participate in the Antiques and Uniques weekend’s market. Special guidelines for that day will be provided once we hear if the event will run this season.
  • Children under 18 will be charged their age in dollars for their season fee.
  • Non-profit vendors will be charged on a case-by-case basis. They are expected to charge fair market prices and clearly identify their organization.
  • This is a community-run market, vendors are encouraged to take on a task to make the market run smoothly.
  • There will be a minimum of two meetings yearly for vendors to attend. If you have ideas or concerns, please bring them to our attention.
  • Craftsbury Farmers’ Market reserves the right to limit the number of similar vendors or product types.
  • Vendors should expect to comply with any Covid-19 guidelines currently in effect throughout the season and remain flexible to unforeseen changes that may occur as a result.
  • Please call Kris Coville @ (802) 586-8022 if you will not be able to attend last minute, so that we can space ourselves out accordingly and ensure that we have a full range of products each week. Absences known in advance need to be relayed to Kris Coville by the Wednesday prior to market.
