The Moss Street Market supports a lively community of small-scale, local organic farmers. If you are a local farmer who would like to sell at the Moss Street Market, please read the Moss Street Market Policy Manual, 2018 and make sure your farm fits with the Market Policies and Philosophy.
Market Vendors must follow our “make it, bake, it or grow it and sell it” policy, meaning that all products sold at the Market are produced locally by the Vendor selling the goods. Farms that have applied to vend at the Market are reviewed by a committee consisting of Farmers known as the Farm Review Committee. All produce, plants, seeds and flowers must be certified or have applied for certification through a provincially recognized certification body except farms less than 1/4 acre under cultivation or backyard (urban) farms, at the review committee’s discretion, may be exempt.
a) Applications must be in by March 15 for applicants who want to start vending in the spring, then next deadline is June 15 for applicants who want to start vending in August or later.
b) Applicants must have IOPA application in and have inspection scheduled or have clear explanation why they’re not applying
c) Applicants must bring something new to the market unless other farmers have left.
If you feel your farm is a good match for Moss Street Market, we encourage you to apply! Complete a Farm Inquiry Form for consideration of the farm review committee.
If you are approved to sell at the Market, you must sell at least once during the following four market days or your reviewed status will expire and you must then re-apply. Bear in mind too, that vendors must sell at the market three or more times per year or your approved status will expire.
