Winter Farmers’ Market seeks vendors for 2019-20 season

BRATTLEBORO—Vendor applications are now being accepted for the 14th season of the Winter Farmers’ Market. Interested vendors are encouraged to submit an application prior to the deadline on Friday, Sept. 6.

The Winter Market opens in the C. F. Church Building, 80 Flat St., on Saturday, Nov. 2 for its 2019–20 season.

The market will be open on 22 Saturdays through March 28, 2020. Weekly market hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A wide array of products typically include locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and baked goods, as well as handcrafted items such as clothing, jewelry, pottery, and soaps. Vendors also offer food for lunch.

The market’s mission is “to support sustainable agriculture by providing a viable winter-season direct market outlet for local community-based farms while building community and promoting regional sustainability.”

“Preference is given to regional agricultural vendors interested in bringing new unduplicated products to market,” write organizers of the juried market.

New vendors or returning vendors with new craft, prepared food, or value-added products will need to present their items for jury at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19 at 80 Flat St.

Any questions regarding the jury process can be directed to Susan Dunning at 802-228-3230.

Additionally, the market’s sustainability mission places an emphasis on local sourcing for prepared foods sold at the market, meaning that participating vendors are increasingly sourcing products from local and regional growers and producers.

The application and market policy information can be found at
