Become A Vendor

VENDOR APPLICATIONS 2017

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE Before you apply:

 
We are currently very short of space and we have an increasing offer of local vendors every season. Since we are still operating at the Lions Club Chalet for the current season 2017, we will have to select only products not currently offered at the Market. If you need more information regarding products before you apply, please feel free to email us.
 
Brand new outdoor vendors will be asked to bring their own gear as our tents and outdoor supplies are currently occupied by returning vendors. We might have some tables and space available under our tents but we can’t guarantee.
 
Applicants will be contacted by the market manager to confirm reservations, or provide feedback on their application. Applications are not approved or accepted on a first come, first served, basis.
 
2017 Table fees:
 
Indoors $40 + HST
 
Outdoors $35 + HST
 
Outdoors with own table/tent $30 + HST
 
Senior discount for all above applies to 65 years+ and is minus $5
 
Additional outdoors table $5 (not applicable to indoors)
 
Utility fee $8 per week (for use of electrical, kitchen, etc)
 
Important for all Potential Vendors Potential vendors (previous or prospective) should read the Vendor Handbook 2016 so that you are aware of the requirements to become a vendor of the St. John’s Farmers’ Market. This document has been updated with important changes and we encourage to read it early in the season. We updated aspects such as parking areas and fees, prepayment options, discounts, code of conduct, among others.
 
Important Notice for Food Vendors Vendors who sell food products at any Farmers’ Market in NL are required by the province to hold a Seasonal Food Establishment License [License Application Form]
 
A vendor must apply to attend the SJFM and receive conditional approval from the Market before they can apply for the Seasonal Food Establishment License.
 
The SJFM will issue conditional approvals to food vendor applicants so that they can apply for their provincial license – this conditional approval will not guarantee bookings for specific market dates. Please allow up to a week for the Market to issue a conditional approval. Specific regulations and policies related to food preparation and sale at Farmers’ Markets can be found in the Service NL document called [Public Market Guidelines].
 
Vendors are responsible for learning and abiding by all of the appropriate regulations and policies. Questions about provincial food safety regulations should be directed to Environmental Health Officer Renee Blake or Jillian Young at ehaa@gov.nl.ca, or 729-2007.
 
Important Notice for Craft Vendors Vendors who sell non-food items, (i.e. arts and crafts), and whose craft has not been juried and approved by the market in the past, will need to be juried by the SJFM Co-op Jury before they may sell at the Market. The market manager will be in touch with relevant applicants with more information about the jurying process. Also, there is a copy of the Artisan Application Form at the end of the Vendor Handbook 2016 in case you want to see the selection criteria and more details.
