Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market seeks vendors for 2023–24 season

BRATTLEBORO — Vendor applications are now being accepted for the 18th season of the Brattleboro Winter Farmers' Market, who says its 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."

The Winter Market will open for the 2023–24 season on Saturday, Nov. 4, and will operate through March 30. Weekly market hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A wide array of products are typically offered, including locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, baked goods, handcrafted items such as clothing, jewelry, pottery, soaps, and more. Food booths are typical as well.

Preference is given to regional agricultural vendors, particularly those bringing new unduplicated products to market. This is a juried market. New vendors or returning vendors with new craft, prepared-food, or value-added products will need to complete a jury process.

The market's sustainability mission places an emphasis on local sourcing for prepared foods sold at the market, meaning that prepared food vendors are expected to feature ingredients sourced from local and regional growers and producers.

The Brattleboro Winter Farmers' Market is a project of Post Oil Solutions, a grassroots citizen sustainability group based in Windham County whose goal is "to raise awareness about sustainable practices for our homes, neighborhoods, and larger communities, and help create the infrastructure needed in our region as we deal with our changing climate. The creation of a community-based food system is a critical component of that infrastructure."
