Shelburne Farmers Market accepting vendor applications for 2022 season

·2 min read

The Shelburne Farmers’ Market is back for the 2022 season and is now on the lookout for vendors.

The Town of Shelburne announced on April 26 that they are accepting vendor applications for the weekly local market, which is set to begin in early June. The Town will be using the Manage My Market platform to accept applications from interested vendors as well as to manage the market.

This year, the Town of Shelburne will be providing direct administration and management of the market taking over from the group of volunteers who ran it during the 2021 season. The town has hired Matthew Webb as the Shelburne Farmers’ Market Coordinator to manage the market.

All applications will be reviewed by market management to determine the best fit for the market. The Town said a preference will be given to vendors offering locally grown and hand made products that are not resold from a wholesaler.

“When applying, please be as specific as possible with your product list. Be sure to include that variety and other descriptive detail for each product. For example, if you are applying to sell pies, please indicate description of the variety of pies you wish to sell,” wrote the Town. “These details could be what sets you apart from existing vendors.”

Multi-level marketing businesses or mass-produced goods will not be accepted as vendors.

The Shelburne Farmers’ Market will also be providing an opportunity for community groups to inform and educations shoppers about important local issues or initiatives with its Community Table. Community groups can apply for the subsidized space through Manage My Market.

Specific details on how to apply for a vendor spot and season fees can be found on the town’s website, www.shelburne.ca.

The 2022 Shelburne Farmers’ Market season will kick off on June 9 and will take place every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. The weekly market will run until Oct. 6.
