Although the current weather makes it seem like spring will never come, the 2024 Market Season is just around the corner.
If you wish to reserve a space for the 2024 season, we are ready to start taking those reservations. If you were a reserved vendor last season, please contact the Market Manager to make arrangements to reserve the same space you had last year or request a new space. If you paid as a day vendor last season but wish to reserve a space this season, please contact the Market Manager to be placed on the waiting list so we may coordinate and map out all reserved vendors appropriately.
For the 2024 season, day vendor fees will be $25.00 per 10’ X 10’ space and the reserved space fee will be $250.00 per space without regard to the number of spaces being reserved. There will be no discount for reserving multiple spaces. Vendors may reserve up to a maximum of 5 spaces.
If you wish to reserve a space(s) for the 2024 season, a minimum of at least 12% down ($30.00 per space) must be received by 04/20/24 (the scheduled day of the Spring Vendor Meeting). All balances owed for any reserved space must be paid in full by June 1, 2024. If you are new to reserving a space this season, please do not send in the 12% down payment until the Market Manager has finalized the space that will be assigned to you for the season.
The Market starts the last Saturday in April (27th). This year the Vendor Meeting will be held April 20th. Vendors will be notified of date, time, and venue prior to the meeting. If at least 12% is not received on or before April 20th, a space that was reserved by a vendor in the prior year will be deemed open and free to reserve to any other vendor or sell to a non-reserved vendor. The Farmers’ Market Manager must know which spaces are reserved and which are available at the start of each Market Season.
Open spaces may be reserved by a previously unreserved vendor at any time before June 1st with at least a 12% down payment ($30.00 per space). The full amount of the reserved fee must be paid in full by June 1st. If a previously unreserved vendor wishes to reserve a space for the season after June 1st, the request must be made in writing to the Market Manager. The Market Manager will evaluate the request and confirm or deny based on the current season’s needs to keep certain spaces open.
For current reserved vendors, this means if we do not have at least your 12% down payment by April 20th 2024 (Spring Vendor Meeting), you will lose your reserved space and it will be available to reserve by any other vendor.
As in previous years, the full amount of the fee for your reserved space must be paid in full by June 1st.
Reminders will be sent out to all vendors.
All vendors must fill out a new data sheet for the 2024 season because information changes. The vendor data sheet for 2024 may be accessed here: 2024 Vendor Data Sheet
If you were not a reserved vendor last year, but wish to be a reserved vendor for the 2024 season, please contact the Market Manager at (406) 437-1855 or [email protected] to start the conversation of where we are able to fit you in.
