This Information for Vendors page is a great place to start. Please don’t apply without reading this page and the Vendor Handbook.
This is our handbook: 2020 CAFM handbook
Applications are all online. We are using MarketWurks, so don’t look for us on ManageMyMarket. Applications for 2020 are open as of February 1. The deadline for returning vendors is March 1.
Returning or “wannabe” restaurant or baked/processed foods vendors: your first deadline is Feb. 15. Our board selects restaurant and baked/processed food vendors in a competitive process starting with the Pre-Application for Certain Products.
A vendor menu appears on the right side of most pages. It will include additional forms. Our handbook will help you decide what forms apply to you.
The Marketwurks application form is on that menu. Or here.
Stall fees are going up for 2020. The new fee is $30 for Corvallis (Saturday) and $26 for Corvallis (Wednesday) and the longer stalls in Albany. Albany has some short stalls for $24 that are great for vendors who unload and park elsewhere. The annual membership, which you pay only once, remains $25.
We continue to accept new applications all season. Corvallis space expanded a few years back but does get full on multiple dates per year. Albany still might be best for new and small farms.
Albany can use more produce. 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, and it’s the main place we offer Power of Produce Club for kids 5-12. Hours are 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
