Brattleboro Area Farmers’ Market seeks new vendors

BRATTLEBORO—The Brattleboro Area Farmers’ Market (BAFM), which operates on Western Avenue each Saturday from May through October, is seeking applications from new vendors.

Farmers, crafters, chefs, bodyworkers, and others who live in Southern Vermont or Cheshire County, New Hampshire, are welcome to apply.

Applications are due Saturday, March 18, for new full season, half-season, and daily vendors, and can be found by going to or emailing the market manager at

The market is also seeking people who would like to set up a one-time educational demonstration in the center circle. Examples include sheep-shearing, pickling, or basket-making. Interested parties are advised to reach out soon to the market manager.

Additionally, acoustic musicians who would like to perform at the market may email the market manager with a sample of their original or open-source music.

According to a Brattleboro Reformer article from that time, the first BAFM opened in July of 1974, making it one of the oldest open-air farmers markets in the state.

Any questions or comments can be directed to the contact form on the BAFM website.
