This Information for Vendors page is a great place to start. You also need to read the 2019 CAFM Vendor Handbook. Please don’t apply without reading this page and the handbook.
Applications are all online. We are using MarketWurks, so don’t look on ManageMyMarket. Applications for 2019 are open as of February 1. The deadline for returning vendors is March 1.
The application form is on a separate page: MarketWurks app
We are working with our internet host to get a security certificate. In the meantime, do not worry about the Not Secure notice. Nothing bad will come of filling out the form, unless you count not being able to sleep in on Saturdays.
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. Please apply by Feb. 15 for the best shot at consideration.
Additional forms are now available in the pulldown menu directly under this Information for Vendors page. The service is through Cognitoforms. Our handbook will help you decide what forms apply to you.
Stall fees are holding steady. For 2019 they are $25 for Corvallis (Saturday) and $22 for Corvallis (Wednesday) and the longer stall in Albany. Albany has some $20 stalls that are great for vendors who unload and park elsewhere. The annual membership, which you pay only once, is $25.
We continue to accept new applications all season. Corvallis space expanded a few years back but is getting tighter again. 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.
