Become A Rockland Farmers Market Vendor
The market is always seeking to expand its product range and is looking for additional vendors of under-represented products. In addition to full time memberships, seasonal four-week memberships are also available. Spaces are limited and priority will be given to products not already represented at market.
Applications for new vendors are accepted every winter starting in December. All applications must be received prior to our business meeting on the third Thursday of February. Please note, new applicants are required to attend the meeting in February and make a presentation of products. If you aren’t able to send the application in and want to bring it with you to the meeting or haven’t heard back from us with the specifics of the meeting please be pro-active and check in with the secretary.
Please read the guidelines and by-laws before submitting an application. Mail application with separate checks of a non-refundable $5 application fee and refundable $50 deposit (made out to Rockland Farmers Market) to:

Continuing members please use the same application and mail (with no application fee) to the chair. Annual dues are set each year at the business meetings. Continuing member applications are due by the first winter meeting in January. Meetings are always the third Thursday of January, February and March.

sufficient space is available to allow an additional vendor
a review of the current products and application wait list has been accomplished
