We are using 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 2014 opened in early February. Returning vendors must complete their applications by March 31, but you can edit you ManageMyMarket profile and products at any time.
If you are a returning or “wannabe” restaurant or baked/processed foods vendor, your first deadline is earlier. The board selects restaurant and baked/processed food vendors in a competitive process. For the best chance of consideration, please complete the Board Review & Approval form by Feb. 17.
The four forms linked below are now also available in the pulldown menu under this Information for Vendors page. The service is still run through Wufoo.
Stall fees have increased by $2 for the 2014 season. Stall fees are: $22 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 31 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. Space is often tight at Corvallis Saturday, but we’ve created a little breathing room in the form of permission for a more space on Monroe Ave. west of the alley. This year is an experiment to see how it works and whether our community will support more vendors.
Farmers Market Guide is a set of ODA Farmers’ Market Food Safety guidelines draft in 2003-04. The references section is outdated, but the information on food handling at markets is still useful.
Farmer Direct Bill FAQ The Farm Direct Bill was enacted in 2011 and rules were adopted in 2012. A link to the rules is contained in the FAQ.
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 that is drawing new customers. Hours are 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
