This Information for Vendors page is a good place to start. You also need to read the 2017 vendor handbook. It contains the guidelines and also is accessible from ManageMyMarket.com during the application process. If you apply you’ll sign something about it, so you should read it first.
We use an online application process. ManageMyMarket.com is where you do it. First hit register, then login, fill out your profile, list products and then apply to a market. Applications for 2017 open February 1. The deadline for returning vendors is ***March 1 ***. You can edit you ManageMyMarket profile and products before, during or after applying. But not your market dates. Once requested, only managers can edit those.
If you are a returning or “wannabe” restaurant or baked/processed foods vendor, your first deadline is earlier — ***Feb. 14***. The board selects restaurant and baked/processed food vendors in a competitive process that begins with the Pre-Application for Certain Products. For the best shot at consideration, please complete the form by ***Feb. 14***.
Forms are now available in the pulldown menu directly under this Information for Vendors page. The service is through Cognitoforms.
Stall fees for 2017 are likely to be $24 for Corvallis (Saturday) and $20 for Corvallis (Wednesday) and the longer stall in Albany. Albany has some $18 stalls that are great for vendors who unload and park elsewhere. The annual membership, which you pay only once, is $25.
March 1 is the deadline for returning vendors, although we continue to accept applications all season. We consider the date of application in deciding which vendors get to attend and where they go. Space on Saturdays in Corvallis is less scarce these days since we can expand across the alley if needed.
Please contact us about the Farm Direct Bill enacted in 2011. There are pdfs at the bottom of this ODA web page.
Albany can still use more farmer vendors. If you are new to farmers’ markets, you’ll have a much easier time getting noticed there. We have a lovely and highly visible location downtown. Hours are 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
