Become A Vendor

VENDOR APPLICATIONS 2017: PROCESS  IS CLOSED

 Currently vendor applications are closed for the season. We are covered with vendors until May 2018 (including winter market dates. We won’t be able to accept more applications until we release the new selection process for the new location in 2018.

IMPORTANT NOTICE Before you contact us:

 
Vendor applications 2018 will be posted on our website by the end of 2017 or early 2018. We will start processing vendor applications from our existing vendors and only then we will start with brand new applicants (depending on space available and products demand). No regular/permanent space is offered to new vendors as we need to work with our existing vendors first (over 125 vendors). In the meantime feel free to check our vendor handbook and general operational information for a better understanding of our operations and selection criteria.
 
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.  Note: Due the high volume of emails, all frequent questions already self explained in our website won’t be necessarily replied by our staff.

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.
 
Due the high volume of emails, all frequent questions already self explained in our website won’t be necessarily replied by our staff.  If you need more details please contact  Danilo Gonzalez Diaz – Market Manager
