News

Community partners play a pivotal role in the success of our market and gain visibility from their support of the local food movement. In addition to "eating local", farmers' market shoppers also like to "shop local" for goods and services. To benefit from a connection with our customers, consider becoming a Friend of Foothills Farmers' Market this season.

Winter Market: This year we will have a special WINTER MARKET on the SECOND SATURDAY of every month! December 12th will be our HOLIDAY MARKET in the CITY PAVILION! The January, February, and March WINTER MARKETS will be held indoors at 105 N Lafayette Street Shelby, NC.

Attention Vendors: New vendor applications are accepted once per year, during the months of January and February. Applications are approved based on space availability.

Any applications received after the end of February will be placed on a vendor waiting list, and if a spot in the pavilion is available, they will be contacted and invited to sell at the Market. Vendor Applicants submitting an application after the end of February must pay a $45 non-refundable application processing fee.

Please specify on your application if you plan to sell all year or for a specific season.

Vendors are expected to attend at least 80% of the markets in which they have signed up. (For example a year-long vendor in Uptown Shelby should attend at least 25 markets; a seasonal vendor should sell for at least 80% of the time frame they indicate on application). If a vendor fails to meet these attendance recommendations, it will be taken into consideration when the Board of Directors review and approve vendor applications the following year.
