Information for Vendors

Do you want to sell at our market?

If you’re looking to become a vendor for the 2017 season, there are a few basic, but important steps.

  1. Complete the application form. Link to download form here.
  2. Read and understand our Vendor Guidelines.
  3. Complete the sales tax forms (required of all vendors whether or not you collect sales tax).  Link to form here.
  4. Mail your fully completed application to Lynn Brand at the address on the form, along with your sales tax form and a check for the market booth fee ($    )

If you intend to sell home baked or home canned goods:

You MUST take the training required by the newly implemented Cottage Food Law. Producers must now register with the Mn Dept of Ag to be allowed to sell under the new law.

Changes have been made to the laws that went into effect in July 2015. The so called “pickle bill” is no longer in effect. You must comply with new regulations and have your card (and number given to you after you register with the MN Dept of Ag) BEFORE you can sell under the provisions of the Cottage Food Law. 

Vendors who are selling items covered by the Cottage Food Law must comply in order to sell their goods at our market. 

Foods covered by the law (this is not an all encompassing list, but serves as examples of the types of foods covered under the law).

  • baked goods
  • certain jams and jellies
  • home canned pickles
  • home canned vegetables, or fruits with a pH of 4.6 or lower

Vendor Mailing List

Or…How to find out what’s going on. Make sure we have you on our Market Newsletter Mailing List

Each week, we send out a newsletter to our market customers. We feel that it is important for our vendors to see that email as well. This will help make sure you are up-to-date with any news that your customers may be aware of.

We also maintain a Vendor email list, so make sure we’ve got you on that one too. This list is used to update vendors on changes in the law, such as the one described above, market date cancellations (due to severe weather), dates, times and locations of Vendor meetings, and the like.

We want to be sure you have all the information you need to make the market a great experience for you as a seller.
