Vendor Application

Submitting a vendor application?

New vendor applications are accepted once per year, from January 1-February 15. Applications are approved based on space availability.

Any applications received after March 1 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.

A complete Vendor Application Packet may include the following:

  • $35 check ($45 after March 1st) payable to Foothills Farmers’ Market (returned if you are not selected as a vendor)
  • Vendor Application & Contract Form (pdf version available here)
  • Current Grower’s Certificate (available from your local County Extension Center)
  • Meat & Poultry Handlers License (more info)
  • Home Processor Inspection (more info)
  • Commercial Kitchen Inspection & User Agreement (call 704-484-5130 for guidance)
  • Photos of craft items

Once approved, vendors are also required to attend a vendor meeting held in March annually by the Board of Directors and market management for a review of policies and procedures, to complete the signing of contract agreements, and to assign market spaces.

Applications received after March 1 and applications from vendors wishing only to sell for a limited time due to product availability (ex. asparagus, strawberries, etc.)  may be considered for approval in a timely manner by the market manager and the Board of Directors or its designated representative.
