Please note: We are no longer accepting vendors for 2013. We are moving to a one-time application process for 2014 and currently accepting applications for 2014. If you think you may like to be a vendor any time in 2014, you must fill out a 2014 application by December 1, 2013. All applications will be reviewed by committee and all vendors will be notified by mid-December on selection status.
Please email forsythfarmersmarket at gmail dot com for the 2014 applications and rules (the rules and apps below are out of date). We hope to have the 2014 apps and rules on line shortly.
Vendors must grow or make the product they offer for sale. Raw food vendors (vegetables, meat, honey, dairy, seafood) must grow/harvest 75% of what they sell but are allowed to carry some products from other small growers. Prepared food and plant vendors must produce 100% of what they sell. The FFM does not allow the reselling of products by non-producers.
Applicants to Forsyth Farmers’ Market will be reviewed by a committee to decide if they are a good fit based on the criteria discussed in the “vendor selection statement.” FFM has limited resources and will not be able to accommodate every vendor who applies.
Please note: the rules and applications below are out of date. Please email forsythfarmersmarket at gmail dot com for 2014 paperwork.
In order to participate in the FFM, a potential vendor must fill out an application and be accepted. The market manager and an advisory committee make decisions on who to accept based on a number of criteria including product, farming methods, current offerings, etc.
WHOLE FOOD VENDORS
In addition to the application, Whole Food Vendors must fill out the 75% Crop List for the stock that you grow yourself. Whole Food Vendors (only) are allowed to stock 25% from other local independent growers and those items must be listed on the 25% Crop List.
PREPARED AND PLANT FOOD VENDORS
Must submit a $20 application fee to be considered. You may send a check with your application or deposit the funds using paypal here. If your application is denied, your $20 will be refunded.
