Vista Farmers Market  

 Booth & Selling Information 

Please, please, pleaseread this before asking any questions.

>>> if you ask us a question, and the answer IS here, before responding we will assume you will find it eventually!

>  Space is limited.  You must fill out an application to be considered.   If you are approved you will be notified.  You must be approved before selling.  Farmers are given preference, second are foodmakers.   We like to receive interesting applications, especially for products we do not currently have.  If we cannot provide space for you now we will save your information for future markets and events.  We try to avoid adding duplicates (or similar items).  The Vista market isn’t right for every product or vendor.  You must apply and be  approved by the market (and any licensing agency) before selling — this can take two weeks or years.

> Fees are collected at market.

Participants must understand that the Vista Farmers Market is providing space to display and sell their items, and access to an existing group of people who shop the market each week.  No guarantee is made regarding your sales.  Feel free to visit the market before you decide to take the risk of renting a space. 

>  Market hours are from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.  We are open in any and all weather, since our customers come in all weather.  You cannot leave until  after 1:10 pm – you may find you still have customers after that however.  You may sell until 2:00 pm.

> If approved, you may set-up starting at 7:00 am, but not later than 7:45 am. Please leave time to find it the first time.  Spaces are assigned by the manager at the market. If you arrive BEFORE 7:30 am or earlier, there is space to drive up to unload your vehicle.  You must be assigned a space before setting up.  If you are allowed to drive in to unload, you should unload only, and set up display AFTER moving vehicle. The manager arrives at about 7:00 am.

>  Business licenses are not required at the farmers market IF you report your gross sales to the market, as we then pay license fee based on that.  All other licenses are up to you to obtain.

> We do tents available for rent, cost is $30 per day and we set it up and take it down.

There is no trash service, you must provide a customer trash container, & take trash with you at day’s end.

> We do not have any electricity.  And any generator must be approved as part of application process.

Location: County Courthouse at 325 South Melrose Drive,  just South of Highway 78.

If you are a nonprofit or an entertainer or any other sort of potential participant, fill out the application as best you can and send it in.        6/28/2013
