Who can sell at the Market?

At the Bloomington Community Farmers' Market there are three categories of vendors, each with a unique set of guidelines and means of participation.

The vast majority of the vendors are the farm vendors. Farm vendors selected and approved to sell at Market must reside and produce farm goods in Indiana, and are expected to be consistently involved with an participate substantially in the production, including aspects like planting, cultivating, harvesting, and raising of goods permitted for sale at the Market. The mission of the Market is to support small farmers. See the ELIGIBILITY OF VENDORS section of the contract which provides definitions to determine eligibility to vend as a farmer. Below you'll find links to the Farm Vendor Handbook, Farm Vendor Contract, and Application. 

We also host A Fair of the Arts, a juried art and fine craft fair, with 30 vendors selling on the second Saturday of the month, May through October.

The third group of vendors is the Prepared Food Vendors, with 10 spaces located on the Farmers' Market Plaza on the B-Line Trail. Proposals to participate in the prepared food vending area during the 2018 season were due Feb. 1.
