Vendor membership is annual for each market season. Our market season runs from the first market in May through the final winter market of our season in late February. We accept applications for new vendors from January 1st through our application deadline of April 15th. For example, John Smith is a sweet corn farmer interested in becoming a vendor. In order for John to be a vendor for the 2020 market season (May 2020 – February 2021), John would need to submit his application before April 15th, 2020 and be reviewed by the Board of Directors before he could vend. If John submitted his application on June 15th he would not be able to become a vendor for the 2020 season.
If you’re interested in becoming a vendor please review the following PDF of the Mankato Farmers Market Rules and Regulations. All produce sold must be grown by the vendor and all baked goods, crafts, artisan items must be substantially created by the vendor within a 40 mile radius of the market and be a product of the homestead of farmstead.
