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 at email@example.com, 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.
