Interested in becoming a Vendor at the Market?
Note that we are not accepting applications for the 2014 season any longer. If you are interested in applying for the 2015 season, apply after January 1, 2015. Please also note that due to a limited number of stalls, our Holiday Market is available to only our regular season vendors.
1. Check that you make, bake, grow or provide the service yourself.
We are proud to be a community-based organic farmers market for local farmers, crafters, food
vendors, and service providers. First priority is given to vendors who produce with a sustainable and organic focus. For farms, this is a requirement. We do not allow wholesale, manufactured or imported goods.
2. Download and read the Market Policy Manual, cover to cover.
The Policy Manual outlines the specific policies for the individual vendor groups, and provides an overview of what the market is all about. It is important that you are familiar with the Policy Manual and meet the requirements for vending before you contact the relevant Review Committee. Moss Street Market Policy Manual, 2014
3. Submit an Inquiry Form for consideration of a Review Committee.
The Review Committees are made up of volunteers who are vendors themselves. Each Review Committee has it’s own model of review. Click on the links at the bottom of this page for specific information on each vending group and to complete the applicable Inquiry Form. Note that the review process can take some time, especially if applying during weeks when the market is operating as our selection committee is made up of busy vendors. Interested vendors should apply with as much advance notice as possible.
4. Once approved, sign the Participant Agreement, and pay the Membership fee.
If you have been approved by the selection committee to vend at the market, complete the Membership Registration & Participation Agreement, pay your membership fees, choose a stall on our MSM Grounds Map, 2014 if you are going to be a reserved stall vendor, and you are ready to join the market. We ask that all vendors contribute to the life and work of the market by volunteering in some capacity.
5. Join us on Market Day and sell your products yourself.
Once approved, the Market Manager will help you understand procedures and assign your stall for the day (Drop-In Vendors) or for the season (Reserved Vendors). Stalls are 10′x10′. You can only sell at your stall that which has been reviewed and accepted, and you must sell it yourself, as outlined in the Policy Manual.
- If you were a Vendor in the 2013 Season or earlier, you are considered a New Vendor. Please follow the procedures for review as outlined above.
- If you were a Vendor in the 2014 Season and are returning this season please read over the above information too – a little refresher never hurts!
- NOTE: If you are introducing new product(s) to your booth this year (or at any time during the year), the new product(s) must first be reviewed! Complete the relavent Inquiry Form to have your new product(s) reviewed.
Membership and Vendor Fees
- All approved vendors must become a member of the Moss Street Market, submit a Membership Registration & Participation Agreement, and pay the annual $30+GST Membership Fee.
Reserved and Drop-In Vendor Spaces
- We offer the option for approved vendors to reserve a stall for the season (at a 20% discount).
- We also retain a number of drop-in stalls ($30+GST for a regular stall, $35+GST for a premium stall). Drop-in stalls are available on a first-come, first-served basis to approved vendors. If you are not reserving your space for the entire market season, you are a drop-in vendor. Drop-in vendor fees are collected each week by market staff, or you may pay and book stalls in advance.
- We also retain a small number of spaces each week for approved Not-For-Profit & Education Groups. Approved NFP & Education Groups need to book their dates in advance with the Market Manager.
