Holiday Market & Craft Fair Vendor Application



Foothills Farmers’ Market is comprised of over 70 vendors from within a 50 mile radius of Cleveland County selling a variety of local produce, locally raised meat, cheeses, baked goods, plants, prepared foods, handmade artisan crafts and more. Our mission is to provide community access to the freshest local foods available anywhere. We value family farms, endorse sustainable food production practices and innovation, contribute to the health and wellbeing of the local community, and support the growth of a robust local food economy.

Our seasonal market operates each Saturday morning from April-October at the Shelby City Pavilion. An additional market is added on Wednesdays from late May-October, and we offer a third market at our Health Department on Tuesday mornings from June-August. Our markets are open rain or shine. Vendors may attend any or all of these markets
