Applications for 2013 opened in early February.
Typically the board selects restaurant and processed food vendors early in the year, long before March 31.
Board review proposals require an additional form listed first on this list of online Wufoo forms. You should try to have this done on Feb. 25 for the best chance of consideration.
2013 stall fees are: $20 for Corvallis (Saturday) and $18 for Corvallis (Wednesday) and the longer stall in Albany. Albany has some $16 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 has been extremely tight at Corvallis Saturday, and we cannot guarantee space even to well-qualified applicants.

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 The references section is outdated, but the information on food handling at markets is still useful.
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.
