Dear Independence Farmers Market Vendors,
WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING NEW FOOD VENDORS AT THIS TIME. DUE TO COVID19 WE WILL PROCEED WITH AN ON-LINE ONLY FORMAT FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
Here are the Independence Farmers Market Rules. Please read them and retain a copy for yourself. Each vendor then needs to fill out the Vendor Application Form and return it to the market manager before selling at the market. Here is a helpful VDACS labelling and regulation chart .If you are a Producer/Processor type vendor, please read over the update to the Virginia Home-Canned Food Exemptions. You can also call or email to the contact information above for copies to be mailed to you. We will have copies available at the market as well.
ALL Season Vendor and Online Market fees for 2020 will be waived. INSTEAD The 3% software fee vendors currently pay to the Online Market will be increased to a total 15% of actual online sales for each vendor. This increase covers the 3% software fee, plus the cost of credit card usage (3.5%), increased staffing, and logistics (supplies, bins).
If you have questions, please contact the Independence Farmers Market Manager at (276)768-0597 and your call will be answered as soon as possible. We are looking forward to this year’s Independence Farmers Market and we thank you for your interest!
