Market Vendors

New for 2022 - market vendors have the opportunity to participate in our signature events during a farmers market at the event! To be considered a market vendor, you must fit into one of three categories (Grower/Producer/Food, Artisan/Crafter, or Non-Profit) and complete the Market Vendor Application (application available January 1, 2022). If your business doesn’t fit into one of these three categories, you can still participate in the event as a sponsor!
